RVs and motorhomes offer people a great way to get out and see the country – in the comfort of a home away from home. Because of the vehicles’ immense size and weight, however, RV and motorhome accidents are dangerous. If a negligent driver leaves you injured in a recreational vehicle accident, call an experienced RV and motorhome accident lawyer in Athens today.
RV and Motorhome Drivers
Although RVs and motorhomes are much larger and more difficult to drive safely than most other vehicles on the road, their drivers need no special licensure or skills. There is no guarantee that the driver behind the wheel of the massive RV with which you share the road has any experience whatsoever manning a vehicle of that size. Other driver-related factors that can contribute to dangerous accidents include:
- Because of their size and weight, RVs and motorhomes require much longer stopping distances than do the cars we drive. When drivers fail to take this increased stopping distance into consideration, it can lead to dangerous accidents.
- Drivers of RVs and motorhomes experience wide stretches of blind spots along every side of their recreational vehicles. Other drivers who find themselves in these blind spots face the very real danger that the driver of the recreational vehicle doesn’t know they’re there.
- Negligent drivers are dangerous drivers, and when the person behind the wheel of an RV or motorhome is negligent, the potential seriousness of any ensuing accidents increases. Such negligence can include drivers who are distracted, fatigued, impaired, and or aggressive.
