Passenger vans are larger versions of a standard, family-sized van used to transport 10, 12, or 15 people. Passenger vans are often used by schools, churches, and communities to transport groups whose number make using standard vans or passenger vehicles impractical.
Unfortunately, the size and weight distributions of passenger vans make them susceptible to rollover accidents. Many passenger van designs are created by extending the body of a standard-size van to create additional seating. This changes the wheelbase of the van and affects its handling characteristics. The design of a passenger van makes it likely that over-steering and other handling problems will arise. When loaded, the handling characteristics of passenger vans degrade even more.

- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Neck and back injuries

The Costs of a Passenger Van Rollover Accident
When a passenger van rolls over, the potential for tragedy is high. The walls and roof structures of many passenger van designs cannot adequately protect the passengers. Although serious accident injuries, as discussed above, are expensive to treat, the full costs of a passenger van rollover accident include much more than just medical expenses. Costs that you may be entitled to if you have been involved in a passenger van rollover collision include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Loss of wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional and mental trauma
- Loss of consortium
- Any other out of pocket expenses related to the subject accident
