Passenger vans can be useful vehicles when it comes to transporting family members and friends. However, due to the large size of these vehicles, as well as the occasional lack of seatbelts and other restraints, a collision involving one of these vehicles can result in serious injuries to everyone involved.

When it comes to passenger van accidents, there are several individuals and entities who may be held responsible. In some instances, if you were a passenger, you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against the negligent van driver. If the collision occurs because of another driver’s negligence, you may be able to file a claim against him or her as well. Driver negligence can include:
- Violating traffic laws and standard rules of the road
- Drinking and driving
- Engaging in distracted driving (such as texting while driving)
In other instances, the injuries sustained in these accidents are attributable to poor manufacturing and/or design, such as poorly designed safety restraints (or lack thereof). In those instances, you may have a valid legal claim against the manufacturer, designer, or distributor of the van or relevant van part.
