Van Accident

Large, 15-passenger vans are convenient. They carry more people and more goods, yet are easier to drive than a truck. They’re often used by churches, colleges, organizations, large families, and carpool groups–as well as for business uses. Unfortunately, however, they have one dangerous flaw: their high center of gravity, coupled with a large load of passengers, creates a high risk of rollover. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued several warnings regarding the dangers of 15-passenger vans, and federal law prohibits schools from using them.

Yet they’re still on the road.

If you, or a family member, have been injured in a van accident, you have legal recourse–even if you signed a liability waiver. As soon as you are able, contact a New Jersey personal injury law firm. Remember, your initial consultation is free, and your case will be handled on a contingency basis. Until you’ve retained an attorney, do not discuss the accident with the van company or their insurance representatives, or accept a financial settlement. It’s important to remember that both the van and insurance companies are representing their own interests. You need an experienced personal injury attorney to represent yours.

Your New Jersey personal injury lawyer will carefully investigate the circumstances of your van accident, looking ways in which the van driver, her company, the van manufacturer, or any other drivers involved, showed negligence contributing to the accident–and your injuries. You’ll work with the firm’s experts to determine the extent to which your injuries will affect your life, including pain, suffering, and loss of income. It takes time to recover from the trauma of a van accident. Let your personal injury attorney help you through the process, and obtain the compensation you deserve- that means that you need to visit Jersey Personal Injury immediately.
