Recreational Vehicle Accidents

Recreational Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Thousands of Georgia families take to the roads, trails, and waterways in recreational vehicles each year. The term “recreational vehicle” (RV) has historically been used to describe a motorized vehicle with a living area, but has also taken on an expanded definition in recent years. There are many types of vehicles that can be classified as a Recreational Vehicle.

Types of Recreational Vehicles include:

  • Motorhomes and campervans
  • Camper trailers and fifth-wheels
  • All-terrain vehicles (ATVs), including four wheelers and three wheelers
  • Motorcycles, dirt bikes, mopeds, mini-bikes, and scooters
  • Boats, jet skis, wave runners, and mini-boats
  • Go-karts and dune buggies

Recreational Vehicle Injuries

While recreational vehicle usage can provide worthwhile entertainment, many of these outings unfortunately end in injury. According to a recent study, there are over 65,000 reported injuries involving recreational vehicles annually, as well as thousands of deaths. These injuries and deaths are not limited to recreational vehicle operators, but often involve passengers and bystanders.

Injuries can result from a number of circumstances, including driver inexperience (especially with rental RVs) and carelessness, dangerous property conditions (e.g. an open well), and design and mechanical defects in the RV’s braking or steering system.

Recovering Compensation After a Recreational Vehicle Accident

Recovering compensation from recreational vehicle accidents can be a challenging process, as it is not always easy to determine the exact cause of injury and legal liability. Liability may lie with the driver, property owner, or even the vehicle seller or manufacturer. Some of these entities may have insurance to cover the damage, however insurance companies rarely cooperate with injury victims, and frequently attempt to blame the accident on them. Under Georgia law, even if the plaintiff is partially negligent, he can still recover damages if he is less than 50% at fault. For these reasons, it is extremely important that you contact a qualified and experienced Georgia attorney to handle your case.

Client Reviews

I was in a head-on collision last year that put me in a wheelchair with a fractured femur. I needed an attorney and my cousin recommended this firm because he had used Briant Mildenhall for his accident. I was glad I called Briant because he always did what he said he would do and kept me informed...

After a head–on collision I had extremely serious injuries to my back and neck, and some internal injuries. I was airlifted to the hospital and started a huge amount of medical expenses accumulating. I hired a lawyer recommended by a friend but I was not satisfied. My cousin told me about this...

After my car accident, I was looking for an attorney and came across the name Katz Personal Injury Lawyers. My intuition told me to call. I called in and Briant Mildenhall talked to me. He was very clear and honest about my options. As the case went forward, Briant and the staff at the law office...

I am 100% satisfied. I called Rob the day after the accident. Everything he said that would happen did, every step of the way. He went beyond what we needed him to do. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer.

Robert Katz isn't your average personal injury lawyer. He has specialized knowledge and experience that the others don't.
