Compensation For RV Accidents In Florida
Florida is a popular destination for vacationers from across the United States. Beautiful beaches, world-class amusement parks and great weather make Florida an RV paradise.
But RVs (also called motor homes, travel-trailers or fifth wheels) are also the cause of some serious accidents along Florida highways and roads. RV drivers are handling a vehicle the size of an 18-wheeler, with the same driving challenges of a semi. However, they don’t have to take any special driver training or possess a higher-level driver’s license like truckers do.

CAUSES OF RV/MOTOR HOME ACCIDENTS
Common RV driver errors that can lead to injuries include:
- Sideswiping a car in the lane next to the RV when changing lanes
- Failing to take required stopping distance into account and rear-ending another vehicle
- Running over a biker or pedestrian when making a too-tight right turn
- Failing to properly secure equipment to the roof or back of the RV
Defective vehicle parts, particularly tires, can also be a factor. It’s common for RVs to be parked for long periods of time between uses. When the RV is driven, its tires are often at or near maximum load, especially during hot weather in Florida. If there are defects in the tire, it’s likely to lead to tire failure with this type of use.
