  1. You should call an attorney near where you live who practices in the area of product liability. Whenever a manufacturer puts an unreasonably hazardous product on the market, there is a possible cause of action at the civil law. These can include defects in design or defects in manufacture. The distributors and dealers can also be liable.

  2. You will need to contact a consumer lawyer. You can also research to see if their are any class actions related to the particular van.


  3. Call a local consumer lawyer in your city.
