The term RV can mean a bunch of different things. We could be talking about a larger vehicle that has an engine and does not need any other vehicle. RVs can also be non-motorized and towed behind other vehicles. These vehicles range in size and weight and can pose different risks to the people who use them as well as to other people on the roadways around them.
When we talk about crashes with RVs, we know that the causes of the crashes do not differ all that much from incidents with regular passenger vehicles. As you look through this list, you will also notice some items that are specific to larger vehicles:
Owners of RVs need to ensure that they properly inspect and maintain their vehicles to prevent vehicle failure. When any part of a larger vehicle fails at high speeds, the results can be catastrophic. Under no circumstances should an RV be operated while the driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
*RV companies could also be held liable if they sell an RV that is faulty or has faulty parts.
Because of their size and weight, we often encounter severe injuries in the aftermath of an RV crash, including:
In many cases, victims sustain more than one injury on that list. This can leave them with serious medical expenses as well as other hidden accident costs like lost wages, rehabilitation, emotional and psychological damages, and more.
