Louisiana 15 Passenger Van Accidents
At Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards, L.L.C., in Lafayette, Louisiana, we are committed to representing people injured in 15 passenger van accidents. Fifteen passenger vans are some of the most dangerous vehicles operating on Louisiana highways. Their high center of gravity makes them particularly susceptible to rollovers. In addition, they are often driven by drivers with little experience or training in the operation of large transportation vehicles.
Knowledgeable Louisiana 15 Passenger Van Lawyers
Fifteen passengers vans are commonly used to transport sports teams, church groups, nursing home residents, children in daycare, and school children. However, their known structural and design defects make them very dangerous. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has issued numerous safety recommendations related to fifteen passenger vans. Some of their known hazards include:
• A high center of gravity that makes them more likely to rollover as the passenger load increases.
• Substandard roof crush standards
• Window designs that increase the likelihood of ejections
• Seats not securely bolted to the frame
Fifteen passenger van manufacturers such as Dodge, Ford, Chevrolet, and GMC use a short wheel base that makes them harder to control and increases their susceptibility to roll-over during quick evasive movements.
