As a Tarrant County car accident lawyer, I am the first to say that recreational vehicle wrecks are rare. Unfortunately, they can also be catastrophic. Since Texas state laws do not require permits or licenses to drive RVs, the inexperienced drivers who operate these over-sized vehicles are a potential danger to other automobiles on the roads.
RVs are more difficult to drive than regular cars because of their sheer size and poor maneuverability issues. In many cases, these drivers are senior citizens that may have difficulty seeing, steering, or responding quickly to certain driving conditions. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reported that over 70,000 people have been injured in wrecks involving recreational vehicles.
Types of recreational vehicles include motor homes, truck campers, and fifth wheels. Common causes of RV or Motor Home accidents include:
o Inexperienced Drivers
o Overloading of Passengers
o Blind Spots
o Poorly Calculated Turns
