Recreational vehicle (RV) accidents are similar to other motor vehicle accidents in many respects. They may occur on city streets, on highways or in parking lots. They may involve collisions with other vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles or stationary objects such as retaining walls or concrete highway dividers. They can cause injury or death, in addition to property damage. Getting medical bills paid and working with insurers can be overwhelming for a family at a time of crisis when serious injuries or a fatality has occurred.
An RV shares many characteristics with commercial vehicles as far as size and maneuverability. Yet the people driving them are typically private individuals — amateurs at the job of driving a large vehicle such as a camper van. Furthermore, many people keep their RVs in storage for much of the year and only drive them a few days or weeks of the year, during vacation. They may be lawfully licensed drivers, but they are often not in practice the way commercial truck drivers — who drive every day — typically are.
Daytona Beach attracts many tourists, including people from inland areas of Florida and from other states. When the tourists arrive in our beach community in their RVs and drive in beach areas or other crowded areas, the scene is set for pedestrian, bicycle and other traffic accidents. Unfamiliarity with our traffic patterns together with the pressures of traffic congestion may contribute to the conditions that sometimes result in collisions involving RVs.
