Recreational Vehicle Accidents
Louisiana Lawyers for Victims of Motor Home Accidents
A significant number of serious auto accidents in Louisiana involve mobile homes, campers, trailers and other recreational vehicles. Not only is travel by RV a popular choice for residents, but our state has an extensive network of RV parks and campgrounds that make it an ideal destination for RV tourists.
If you or a family member has been involved in a serious, injury-causing or fatal RV accident, your focus should be on your personal recovery. At Dodson & Hooks, APLC, accomplished Baton Rouge RV accident lawyers are prepared to assess your case in depth and defend your legal rights tenaciously in insurance negotiations or litigation.
Driving Errors Can Be Especially Destructive With an RV Involved
Driving an RV is a substantial challenge, especially in heavy traffic or on unfamiliar roadways. The sheer size of these rigs — sometimes also called “fifth wheels” — can cause control and visibility problems. Issues such as driver intoxication or distraction, road defects and inclement weather are magnified in comparison to operating a typical passenger vehicle. Some of the more common causes of recreational vehicle accidents include:
- Improper lane changes and other unsafe driving maneuvers
- Excessive speed and tailgating
- Trailer detachment due to improper hookup or mechanical defects
Serious Representation for Serious Injury Victims and Grieving Families
Most importantly, when RV accidents occur, the consequences are often comparable to those associated with semi truck accidents or bus accidents. Victims may suffer catastrophic head and brain injuries, spinal injuries resulting in paralysis, crush injuries or disfigurement — all of which can justify a significant financial recovery to address both immediate and long-term needs.
