Lakeland RV Accident Lawyer
With its convenient location between Orlando and Tampa, Lakeland, Florida, attracts numerous recreational vehicle (RV) travelers. In addition to its many lakes, attractive architecture and antique shops, Lakeland offers a wide variety of RV campgrounds, parks and resorts for RV travelers.
RV travel has become very increasingly popular recently because it provides a convenient, safe way to take a trip. Having more RVs in the area, however, means that there could be more RV accidents.
Polk County Road Accidents
Polk County already has too many road accidents. In 2019, there were 11,963 crashes in Polk County involving all types of vehicles. More than 8,000 were injured in those crashes and 125 were killed. Throughout Florida, more than 900 people were involved in motorhome and motorcoach accidents in 2019.
Lakeland, Florida, RV Accidents Often Cause Serious Injuries
With more people driving RVs for the first time, there are more inexperienced RV drivers on the road. They often don’t realize how dangerous it can be to drive or haul motorhomes, camper vans, or other large recreational vehicles listed in the Florida Statutes Section 320.01(b).
Because RVs are so large and heavy, a collision that involves an RV can cause serious injury or death. RV accident victims often have multiple injuries, which can include such life-changing injuries as crushed limbs, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), severe burns, broken bones, and damage to the spine.
People suffering serious RV accident injuries face many difficulties. They may have to deal with ongoing pain, physical limitations, loss of income, mounting medical bills, anxiety or depression, and the loss of the ability to do the things they used to be able to do for their families.
The Lakeland RV accident lawyers at Dennis Hernandez have worked with Florida accident injury victims for many years and understand the difficulties you face. We want to help you get the compensation you need and deserve for all the current and future losses and expenses you are dealing with because of your injuries.
WHAT CAUSES RV CRASHES IN LAKELAND?
RV drivers are often inexperienced. They may have driven an RV before, but only infrequently when they were on vacation. Or they may be on their first RV road trip ever. Florida does not have any special requirements for RV drivers, and inexperienced drivers may be less skilled than they realize. Inexperienced or careless RV drives may misjudge how much space they need to turn or stop their vehicles.
Other types of driver negligence that can cause RV accidents include:
- Speeding or driving aggressively
- Violating other traffic laws
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving while fatigued or distracted
- Not checking blind spots
- Driving in unsafe conditions
- Improperly loading the RV
- A malfunction of the RV
