Car Accidents Caused by RV Drivers
Driving a motor home or a truck with a travel trailer in Houston is substantially different than driving a car.

- Changing lanes requires more room.

Holding Negligent RV Drivers Accountable
In Texas, however, people can drive most recreational vehicles without a special driver’s license or special training. Texas is unique in that a special driver’s license is required for larger RVs.
Many other states do not have such requirements, and because many RV drivers on the road are from other states, few have had any training on the nuances of driving an RV.
Unfortunately, this is the cause of many recreational vehicle accidents. Driving a RV requires extra caution and practice and the failure of a driver to operate the RV in a safe manner will result in an accident.
Negligent RV drivers can be sued for damages when their carelessness causes and accident an injuries.
Our Houston car accident lawyers understand that the size of recreational vehicles often means that victims of these auto accidents will suffer serious injuries, including brain injuries and back injuries. We have the strength to take on negligent RV drivers and their insurance companies to get maximum compensation to cover medical costs and more.
RVs may be pulling trailers carrying four-wheelers, dirt bikes and other vehicles that go along with vacation and leisure travel. Not only do we handle accidents on roads and highways in Houston and statewide, but we also handle off-road accidents involving ATVs and similar vehicles.
