West Palm Beach Van Accidents Attorney
If you have been involved in a crash, then contact this West Palm Beach van accident lawyer. Vans are a popular form of transportation for goods or people. Similar to accidents involving any other vehicle on the roadway, crashes involving vans can be caused by several things. Vans are at a much higher rollover risk than other vehicles, particularly when they are fully loaded with passengers or goods.
Because vans can be involved in many types of wrecks, there are several different parties who might be liable for your accident. Typically, van drivers, vehicle manufacturers, and companies who own fleets of vans are the ones responsible for a wreck. Vans usually carry several passengers when used to transport people. Consequently, when a van is involved in a crash, many people can be injured. When this takes place, all of the people injured in a collision involving a van can seek compensation for injuries by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
If you are injured in a van crash, it will be important to determine exactly what caused your injuries. Frequently, accidents are caused by defective or missing equipment in the van. For instance, many vans don’t have seatbelts when they really should have them. You might have a case against the manufacturer of the van or against the owner of the van if you are injured in a van accident due to the fact that the van did not have seatbelts.

A minivan is also a kind of van. Vehicles are classified as minivans based on their size. Mr. Quackenbush represents people who have been injured in minivan crashes, wrecks, collisions and accidents anywhere in the State of Florida.
Since vans can be designed or manufactured top-heavy (i.e., with a high center of gravity), they can be prone to rollover. There can be several different causes of a van rollover wreck. For one, the driver of a van can try to make a very sharp turn - consequently flipping the van because of its top-heavy nature. In this situation, the driver of the van and the designer/manufacturer of the van (depending on if it was built too top heavy) can be responsible for injuries that result.
When a van's tire hits something on the highway (for example, a curb, median or another object), then a van rollover accident can also result. In this situation, responsibility for the accident would typically lie with the van's driver.
Lastly, van rollover crashes can also be caused by tire blowouts. When a tire blowout takes place, the van can be caused to change direction suddenly, and this can cause a van rollover wreck. Mr. Quackenbush handles cases involving tire blowouts.
When a tire blowout takes place and causes a van rollover accident, several entities can be liable. If the tire was not built to proper standards, then the manufacturer of the tire can be liable. Further, an entity that maintained the tires can be responsible if the tires were not properly maintained. Third, the owner of the van can be liable for putting a bad tire on the van.Call Today to Speak to this Palm Beach County Van Collision Attorney/Lawyer
In some cases, carelessness of the van driver can also be the reason for a van crash. You might have a case against the van driver, his or her employer, and the owner of the van if you were the passenger in a van and the van driver caused an accident which injures you. Alternatively, you may possibly have a case against the driver of another vehicle if that vehicle carelessly hit the van you were riding in and caused your injuries. Mr. Quackenbush can also help you pursue a case against the other van driver if you were driving your vehicle and you were hit by a van.
In cases where the van did not have the necessary number of seatbelts, you may be thrown around the van and, due to the lack of seatbelts, injuries caused by these types of wrecks can be catastrophic. In some cases, death can result from a van accident. In those circumstances, a personal representative of the deceased person's property will be chosen to represent the family/loved ones of the decedent in the court case. When the case is settled or goes to trial and results in a verdict/judgment, the proceeds will go to the beneficiaries or survivors of the estate.This West Palm Beach Van Crash/Wreck Law Firm is Premised on a Pursuit of Justice
