A recreational vehicle, or simply referred to as RV, is meant to be just as it sounds: a way to have fun and make great memories with friends and family that are meant to be cherished forever. Unfortunately, RV accidents do happen and some of these accidents can be serious, and result in painful, life-long injuries. In some cases, a RV accident can be fatal.
RV accidents can result from several different types of vehicles, such as:
- Dirt bikes
- Golf carts and go-karts
- All-terrain vehicles (ATV)
- Utility-terrain vehicles (UTV)
- Dune buggy
- Recreational / Off-Highway Vehicles (RV / OHV)
There are many potential causes of an RV accident. Lawsuits can happen when improper training is given, equipment failure, poor maintenance, lack of supervision, tour guide or rental company failures as well as other reasons. Although they vary in type and size, for the most part, RVs tend to be large vehicles. It takes a certain level of skill to safely operate an RV, but a CDL is not required. As such, someone may be driving an RV carelessly, or make one negligent decision that causes an accident. You may have been injured as a passenger in the RV, or perhaps you were in another car and someone driving an RV collided into your vehicle.
On the other hand, you may have been safely driving an RV when another driver collided into you, and he or she was at fault in your accident. No matter the details surrounding your situation, if you were injured in an RV accident due to the fault of another, you may be working with an auto accident attorney on getting the settlement you deserve.
If you weren’t the one injured in your RV accident, it may have been one of your loved ones and you’re working with an attorney to seek justice on their behalf. One recent report studies injuries and outcomes regarding children and RV related injuries at a trauma center. In fact, the U.S. National Library of Medicine released a recent eight-year study of a single pediatric trauma center, which reported that 528 patients seen during that time were injured due to an RV accident.
Whether it’s your lawsuit or a family member’s, waiting for a personal injury case to settle can feel cumbersome. Because a collision with or in an RV can result in serious injuries, there may be a long road to recovery and a substantial amount of medical expenses to deal with.
