Recreational Vehicle (RV) Accidents

Every year people travel to the State of Florida via their recreational vehicles, or RVs. Whether it’s a family vacation, a weekend getaway or an extended stay to escape the cold winters of the north, Florida roads and highways are full of RVs.

Although we tend to think of RVs as the large ‘house on wheels’ concept, the term recreational vehicle can actually refer to any one of a number of type of vehicles, including:

Regardless of the type of recreational vehicle being used and the amount of fun one is having, the unfortunate truth is that many RV outings end with an accident. In fact, one study shows that every year over 65,000 RV-related injuries are reported, along with thousands of deaths. The causes of the accidents are numerous, ranging from inexperienced or unqualified drivers to reckless driving, dangerous vehicle conditions, and design and mechanical defects.

Your Legal Rights

Depending on the circumstances of the recreational vehicle accident, you may have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. However, actually getting this compensation can be a very challenging and complex legal process. This is because it is usually a challenge to determine the cause of the RV accident and, based on that, determining who is liable for the resulting injuries. For example, depending on the cause, the driver, property owner, vehicle owner, RV seller or manufacturer could all be held liable for your injuries.

To help you navigate these legal complexities and to ensure you get the compensation you deserve, it is recommended that you start by discussing your case with an experienced RV accident attorney. Your attorney will be able to fairly evaluate your case, determine the cause (or causes) and develop a strategy for holding the right entity liable.

Since 1977, James Cunningham has been helping Florida RV accident victims receive justice and fair compensation for their injuries. To ensure you get the compensation you deserve for your recreational vehicle accident injuries, contact the Law Offices of James O.
