California Moving Vans Accident Attorney

Moving vans are typically boxed motor vehicles that may be rented be people moving or operated by professional movers. While the common passenger van usually has multiple rows of seating, the back area of a moving van is typically dedicated entirely to storage.

The amount of freight that a moving van is carrying can increase its weight and, thus, the damage it can cause if it is involved in a motor vehicle accident. Many people who are driving moving vans may be completely unfamiliar with operation of such vehicles, and this kind of unfamiliarity is a common cause of various crashes.

Moving Companies in California

California has literally hundreds of different moving companies. The California Attorney General recommends that people check to verify that a moving company is registered with the California Public Utilities Commission for moves within California or the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) for interstate moves.

Many smaller companies also handle strictly in-state moves.

Causes of Moving Van Accidents

A moving van crash could be the result of various forms of negligence. Many of these accidents occur while a moving van is attempting to enter or leave a location.

Other collisions stem simply from drivers having been distracted, possibly by attempting to use a navigation system or map, or talking or text messaging on a cell phone. Because some delivery companies feel an obligation to complete moves as soon as possible, a moving van accident could also be caused by speeding.

The same impatience could also be a factor when a moving van is involved in a turning accident at an intersection. Moving vans may make left turns in front of other oncoming drivers who are powerless to avoid collisions.

Some moving van accidents involve the moving company or person’s failure to secure their load, with packages possibly falling out of a vehicle and into the paths of other drivers. It could also be possible that a moving van driver was fatigued operating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

It is also possible for drivers to have not been at fault for their moving van crashes if there was some kind of mechanical issue with the van. In such cases, the van owner, a part manufacturer, or maintenance company could become liable.

You will benefit from the May Firm performing an exhaustive and thorough independent investigation of your crash. We will determine the cause, gather all relevant evidence, and then identify every single liable party.

Types of Moving Van Accident Injuries

Moving vans usually weigh more than other passenger vehicles, so collisions at higher impacts will frequently result in highly serious injuries. Some of these injuries could even be fatal.

When a person is killed in a moving van crash, a wrongful death lawsuit could be filed by the deceased person’s family members. The people who survive their moving van accidents can also be entitled to compensation for such costs as medical bills, lost income, and other damages.

Some of the kinds of injuries people might suffer in a moving van accident include, but are not limited to:

  • Lacerations
  • Paralysis
  • Muscle strains
  • Fractures
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Sprains

The immediate costs that a victim faces after a moving van accident can often be overwhelming. You need to know that you do not have to face these challenges alone.

Do not ever assume an insurance company is on your side, no matter how concerned and sincere that agent who called you might have seemed. Whatever you do, never agree to provide any recorded statement to an insurance company until you have legal representation.

Let the May Firm handle all conversations with insurers so our experienced attorneys can speak on your behalf. We will negotiate for a just settlement and can file a lawsuit if the insurance company proves unwilling to compensate you fairly.
