Recreational Vehicle Accident Claims

While any accident can have devastating consequences, crashes involving recreational vehicles tend to be particularly catastrophic.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., we understand how difficult it is to get back on your feet after a severe injury puts you out of work or a tragic loss leaves you unsure of where to turn. As your neighborhood attorney, we provide compassionate, personalized attention as we guide you through the legal process. Our RV accident attorneys are ready to fight against the insurance company and work to recover the full, fair compensation you are owed.

Types of RV Accidents

RVs offer a fun, convenient, and comfortable method of travel. However, when it comes to operating these vehicles, there is a significant learning curve. Motorhomes, fifth wheels, pop-ups, and other RVs are much larger than traditional passenger vehicles and other types of trailers, making them difficult to maneuver. Despite this, however, most states do not require RV drivers to obtain a special license or undergo any type of education or training before getting behind the wheel of an RV.

Inexperienced RV drivers may make any number of mistakes, from changing lanes into a vehicle they could not see in the RV’s blind spot to failing to leave enough space to stop to driving over the posted speed limit for large vehicles/trailers. However, not all RV accidents occur due to operator error; some collisions happen as a result of defective RV design, faulty manufacturing, or third-party negligence.

Some of the most common causes of RV accidents include:

  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Speeding
  • Driving too fast for current weather conditions
  • Poor weather/high winds
  • Fatigued driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Towing hitch fails/detached trailers
  • Improper/uneven loading
  • Overloaded RVs
  • Failure to stop in time
  • Failure to yield
  • Unsafe/miscalculated turns
  • Failure to see other motorists in RV blind spots
  • Unsafe/unlawful passing
  • Mechanical failure
  • Defective RVs, RV parts, or roadways

Whether you were involved in an accident with a careless RV driver or were injured after your RV rolled over or detached due to defective design, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries. Our RV accident attorneys can help you understand your legal options and devise a strategy tailored to your unique situation.

Who Is Liable for an RV Accident?

As in other types of personal injury cases, including traditional car accident claims, negligence and fault are key elements of establishing liability in RV accident claims. To determine who is liable for your injuries and damages after an RV accident, you will need to first determine who was at fault for the accident and whether any underlying issues, such as defective design or parts manufacturing, contributed to or caused the accident.

In some cases, the RV driver may be liable if they negligently caused the accident. In other cases, another motorist on the road could be responsible for causing an accident with an RV. If an RV rolled over or failed in some way due to a defect, the entity responsible for designing, manufacturing, or distributing the vehicle or part could be legally liable.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., we conduct exhaustive investigations to determine how the accident occurred and who was at fault. We work with a team of six in-house investigators, accident reconstructionists, and other experts to gather all applicable evidence in support of your claim.

Damages in RV Accident Claims

Like other crashes involving large vehicles, such as semi-trucks or buses, RV accidents tend to be extremely destructive. Often, victims sustain catastrophic bodily injuries, leaving them in considerable pain, facing new disabilities and unexpected challenges.

If someone else was at fault for the accident, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your economic and non-economic damages. The exact value of your claim will depend on a variety of factors, but many RV accident victims can recover certain damages.

You may be able to secure compensation for your:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Future lost earnings
  • Lost/reduced earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property/vehicle damage

If someone you love died in an RV accident or due to injuries sustained in a collision, you may be able to recover compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance provider for a variety of losses, including funeral/burial expenses, loss of income/financial support, loss of inheritance, and loss of love, companionship, guidance, support, counsel, consortium, and more.
