Bus Accidents

15-Passenger Van / Bus Accidents

Religious groups, summer camps, schools and other organizations routinely use 15-passenger vans. Unfortunately, some of these practical vehicles can have design defects that make them more prone to roll-over accidents. The biggest danger occurs when a 15-passenger van is loaded to capacity or overstocked with cargo. When this is the case the vehicle’s center of gravity can be thrown easily from one side to another which makes the vehicle difficult to control and more prone to roll overs.

Pedestrians always have the right of way.

Bus, Truck, and Car Accidents Involving Pedestrians

Although most pedestrian injuries and fatalities happen at intersections, it’s also possible to be hit by an out-of-control vehicle as you’re walking on the sidewalk, in a parking lot, or even in a recreational area (like a park or beach). Less cut-and-dried are cases where the pedestrian has been walking, or jogging, down the side of the street rather than on the sidewalk. As stated above, Massachusetts law dictates that cars give pedestrians a reasonable right-of-way, but in these instances “right-of-way” may be subject to interpretation. At the very least, drivers are required to slow down and give you plenty of leeway when attempting to pass you on the street.
