Vehicle (RV) Accident LawyersAccording to the Recreational Vehicle (RV) Industry Association’s 2018 Annual Report, RV sales have increased by 36% from 2014 to 2018.

The percentage of our population with excess leisure time is growing and will continue to grow over the next decade. Thus, it can be expected that the popularity of RVs will continue to rise.

What Makes RV Accidents More Dangerous?

RV accidents are more dangerous than regular motor vehicle accidents because of the increased likelihood of them occurring, and the severity of the injuries they can cause.

RV accidents are more likely to occur because of:

  1. Blind spots;
  2. Driver fatigue;
  3. Equipment failure;
  4. Imbalanced load or overloading;
  5. Improper maintenance or lack of maintenance;
  6. Improper turns;
  7. Increased stopping distance;
  8. Inexperienced drivers;
  9. Lack of maneuverability;
  10. Overcorrecting;
  11. Rollovers;
  12. Runaway trailers;
  13. Size and/or weight of the vehicle; and
  14. Tire blowout due to wear and tear or under-inflation.

RV accidents usually result in more severe injuries because of:

  1. The lack of seatbelts used by, or available to, all passengers in the vehicle;
  2. The absence of airbags in many RVs; and
  3. The increased force of the collision due to the size and weight of the RV.

Insurance Complications

When it comes to RV accidents, insurance can become a complex issue. In New York State, a self-propelled RV must be insured. Towed RVs, however, are usually covered by the regular automobile insurance of the driver. They can only be covered, however, if the insured listed the trailer on their declarations page. Some types of automobile insurance may not cover towed RVs, and some may partially cover it, but not in full. Many RV owners mistakenly believe that their RV is insured by their regular automobile insurance or are mistaken as to the extent of that coverage. A further complication occurs when the insurance for the RV has expired, unbeknownst to the owner.

At the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. our team of experienced Buffalo, New York RV accident lawyers will thoroughly investigate your claim and identify any and all insurance policies that might come into play. Whether your case involves skilled negotiation with an insurance company or taking your case to court, we will fight to get you the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.

Determining liability can be a complicated issue in RV accident cases. The at-fault party could be the driver, retailer, manufacturer or any combination of the same.
