Liability In Van Accidents
Companies that transport goods or people in exchange for money are considered common carriers. This includes buses, trucks and shuttles. Drivers are supposed to use a high degree of caution in order to avoid accidents. For example, a number of collisions take place when drivers make dangerous left turns.
According to the California Vehicle Code 21801, “The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left or to complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public or private property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are close enough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turning movement, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to the approaching vehicles until the left turn or U-turn can be made with reasonable safety.”
Any person that is injured in an accident with a transport van may have the ability to recover damages through a bodily injury claim. If the driver of the van was working at the time of the accident the company that they work for may face vicarious liability. A car accident attorney can evaluate the specifics of your case and let you know if you have a claim that can be pursued.
