The pull of the open road has many couples and families taking to the RV for a family road trip. Driving through several cities or even dozens of states is a great way to bond as a family and see a few sites that you may not have been able to see otherwise. While many RV trips end without incident, some end in what can only be called tragedy. When people are injured in an RV accident, they may have the legal right to sue the at-fault party for damages.
An RV is considered a vehicle. When a person is injured in any type of vehicle collision and they can prove that the accident was the result of someone’s negligence or error, they have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit. To be successful, a victim must be able to prove several things.
The first thing that must be proven is a duty of care on the part of the at-fault driver. The victim must then prove that the other party breached that duty (negligence). Next, a victim will need to prove that they sustained injury in the accident and, finally, that the injury was a direct result of the collision.
