Passenger Van Accidents in Nashville
Passenger vans are widely employed by youth organizations, churches, camps, and other groups to transport between 5-15 people. However, due to the nature of passenger vans and the groups that utilize them, they are at a high risk for devastating crashes. Rollover accidents are particularly common to passenger vehicles.
Rollover Accidents & Passenger Vans
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has warned drivers of the inherent dangers of 15-passenger vans and rollovers. In a 12-year period, 22% of all van crashes resulted in a rollover—in fact, 53% of all single-vehicle crashes for passenger vans are rollover crashes. These crashes often resulted from poorly inflated tires or inexperienced drivers.
Drivers for passenger vans are often untrained and are simply employees of the organization. When they are faced with poor road conditions and do not properly maintain their tires, rollover crashes become imminent. Unfortunately, the fuller the van, the greater the odds of a rollover—half of all van rollovers occur when the vehicle is full.
Recovering Damages After a Bus Accident in Tennessee
By virtue of their size and speed, buses can cause severe accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries, devastating property damage, and, wrongful death. Recovering the extensive losses victims often suffer after these events becomes critical to repairing their lives and navigating the future ahead.

- Lost income and future wages
- Past and future medical expenses
