Van Accidents

When an individual is driving along and gets into a crash on his or her own time, that driver is usually going to be responsible for his or her own actions. Similarly, when a taxi driver crashes on the job the taxi company is usually going to be liable. Liability for van accidents can often be much more complicated, though.

Vans are frequently used to drive around youth groups. Consider a recent van accident on Interstate 55 New Madrid County, Missouri. According to news reports, a van carrying a group of young people in a church group crashed injuring 12 of the 15 passengers. Eight children aged 11 to 18 were injured, and each of these children was not wearing a seatbelt. Two of them were flown to a nearby hospital. Or consider an even worse scenario, the case of a van accident near Goodman, Missouri where a van full of very young children hit a train, killing one five-year-old child. When a van full of children gets in an accident the results can be especially tragic.

Van Safety Risks

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has done an extensive study of the safety of these vehicles and found a lot of issues. The review found that over a 12-year period 1,576 15-passenger vans were involved in fatal accidents that resulted in 1,111 fatalities to occupants. 657 of these accidents were single-vehicle crashes, and 349 of those were rollovers. Only 14% of the fatally-injured occupants were wearing their seat belts and 61% of the fatalities were ejected from the van. The flip side of that is 92% of those wearing seat belts survived a fatal crash. The study found a particular problem with rollovers. Full vans are more than twice as likely to roll over than those that are half full and five times more likely to roll over than vans with only the driver on board. Also, most of the rollovers occur on high-speed roads. In short, anyone in a van should wear a seatbelt and the drivers need to be especially careful driving fast when full.

Responsibility Can Be Complicated

Because of the way vans are used, the driver’s role at the time of an accident can be in question. For example, if a group of teens are going out to volunteer with a church group it is not always clear if the church is responsible for the damages from the accident. If the driver was an employee of the church, that will usually make the church liable. If the driver was volunteering and only loosely affiliated with the church, then the driver may be responsible for his or her own actions. The same would be true for a day care. If day-care employees take children out in a van, then the day care is probably going to be liable. If a parent organizes an activity outside of day-care hours, then the parent might be liable.

In van accidents the liability can be incredibly high because there are so many people that could potentially be injured. That just creates even more incentive for insurance companies representing various potentially-liable groups to all point the fingers at each other. The insurance company for a school, sports club, and a driver could all try to push liability off onto the other parties and leave the victims needing a champion to fight for them.
