Vans are among the larger vehicles on the road today. As such you wouldn’t want to be in an accident with one. Their larger size can mean whichever other vehicles are involved in an accident can come off worse than the van driver would.
Thankfully the majority of people who drive a van do so with great skill. They may have driven vans for many years, but at any rate they will take great care not to put any other road users in danger. This includes pedestrians who may be using the pavement or walking across the road. It is rare that someone might be involved in an accident where a van driver was to blame.
What should you do if this does happen?
If you are unfortunate enough to be hurt in an accident of this nature, you should consider whether you could make a no win, no fee* claim to get van driver injury compensation. For this to be a possibility you would have to prove the van driver was the one to blame for the accident you had. There are times when this is easier than others, so you may benefit from getting professional advice on this matter.
Van driver injury compensation amounts vary according to a variety of assorted factors. For example the injuries received will have a great bearing on any compensation you may be awarded. Similarly there may be occasions when you incur out-of-pocket expenses you would not have had if your accident had not occurred in the first place. This is why keeping receipts is so important – they may be required as evidence of the expenses you have had in this situation.
