Many people in Florida own recreational vehicles (RVs) or motorhomes that allow them to travel around the United States with ease. In addition, many tourists come into Florida with their large RVs or motorhomes for their own vacations. While these vehicles can be fun and have many benefits, they can also be dangerous on the roads if they are involved in an accident. If you’ve been injured in a crash with an RV or motorhome, don’ hesitate to call Quattrochi, Torres, and Taormina to discuss your rights and options today.
The Risks of RVs and Motorhomes
RVs and motorhomes are often substantially larger than many passenger vehicles on the road, similar to commercial trucks. However, unlike commercial vehicles, most people do not need special training or a special license to operate an RV or motorhome. These vehicles can be difficult to maneuver and can also cause serious damage when they crash into a much smaller car or SUV.
The following are some specific risks regarding these recreational vehicles:
- The RV or motorhome will roll overdue to its high center of gravity
- Drivers may become fatigued or may even fall asleep at the wheel if they are on a long road trip
- Drivers may be distracted, especially with multiple family members on board
- Drivers may be intoxicated if they have drinks while on vacation and then operate the RV
- The RV or motorhome may experience a sudden tire blowout or another malfunction, and the driver may lose control
