Skilled Passenger Van Accident Attorneys in Charlotte, North Carolina

At Dewey, Ramsay, & Hunt, P.A., our Charlotte passenger van accident attorneys represent injured clients throughout North Carolina who have been hurt by another person, party, or entity’s negligence.

That includes vulnerable victims who rely on passenger vans designed to accommodate and transport senior citizens to appointments or social events, athletic teams to sporting events, employees for work carpools, or teenagers to youth programs.

The reality is that 15-passenger vans are in high demand and are prevalent on our North Carolina roads. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration warns that while a 15-passenger van is convenient, drivers and passengers must use caution to minimize the risks associated with these vehicles. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

That is why we are here.

If you have been hurt or lost a loved one in a 15-passenger van accident, your first meeting with our law firm will be with a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney, so you can immediately understand your legal rights and options to pursue the negligent party that caused your harm.

Our Mecklenburg County personal injury lawyers customize each case using both personalized attention and expansive resources to pursue maximum results, so you can get your life back.

What are the Most Common Causes of 15-Passenger Van Crashes in North Carolina?

Passenger vans provide our North Carolina communities with transportation resources they may not have access to otherwise, which makes their use an integral part of the traffic in and around Charlotte and the rest of the state.

When these large vehicles are involved in traffic collisions, multiple people may suffer the consequences — inside and outside the van.

Some of the most common causes of passenger vehicle van accidents in North Carolina include:

  • Inexperienced or poorly trained passenger van drivers
  • Other negligent motorists who are distracted, under the influence of alcohol, speeding, or failing to obey traffic signs and signal
  • Over- or under-inflated tire causing the driver to lose control and possibly roll the vehicle
  • Lack of maintenance to ensure the large vehicle’s road safety
  • Van design flaws that can contribute to serious injuries
  • Heavy or unbalanced loads in the vehicle or strapped to the roof
  • Lack of driver oversight or requirements for special qualifications

Transportation safety experts suggest that drivers of 15 passenger vans attend special training so that they are made aware of the safety risks associated with these vehicles.

When 15-passenger van accidents do occur, the company that owns the van, the driver, or another third party like the van’s manufacturer or maintenance facility may be held liable for our client’s injuries or the loss of their loved one.

Passenger Van Accidents Can Lead to Catastrophic Injuries & Fatalities in North Carolina

The NHTSA reported that 57% of the passenger van occupants killed in rollover crashes over the past decade were ejected from the vehicle during the collision.

This is important because rollovers are common when these large vehicles are improperly loaded with cargo leaving the interior weight — including passengers and their belongings — unbalanced.

What is more, the open cabin configuration of these large vehicles can lead to significant injuries when passengers are thrown around the interior of the vans when quick stops, swerving, or other last-second maneuvers occur to avoid a crash or upon the impact of a collision.

Some of the most common injuries associated with 15-passenger vans may include:

  • Broken bones
  • Road rash that requires skin grafting
  • Muscle, ligament, tendon tears, and other orthopedic injuries
  • Facial fractures
  • Organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Burn injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Neck and spine injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death
