- RV Accidents Lawsuits in Arizona
Touring the open road is certainly appealing, and a comfortable way to explore America is while riding in a recreational vehicle. Unfortunately, the size and weight of an RV can be difficult for the average driver to maneuver. In Arizona, there were over 90 RV accidents in 2011, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation (AZDOT). While the number of crashes may seem insignificant, no accident is insignificant to the victims involved.
Any licensed driver in the United States can drive an RV. Considering the size and structure of these vehicles, there is great potential for keeping occupants safe in an accident, but the damage they can cause to other vehicles and motorists can be devastating.
If you were involved in an accident with a recreational vehicle and sustained injuries or lost a loved one in an RV accident, you may be eligible for compensation for the losses you have suffered. The attorneys at Phillips Law Group have the expertise, experience and dedication to defend your rights should you have a case.

Types of RVs
Each year, families flock to RV shows produced by the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association to see the new models and features that are released to entice buyers.
The main types of RV include:
- Motorcoaches / motor homes: a vehicle combining living quarters and driving areas
- Travel trailers: living quarters that must be towed by another vehicle
- Camping trailers: living quarters that must be towed, designed specifically for camping
- Truck campers: living quarters that must be towed by a pickup truck
The latest advances in the modern RV integrate impressive forms of technology to increase the usable amount of living space in the vehicle. For instance, fold-out sections are sometimes built into camping trailers to create more space, and can be folded away for travel. Some motorcoaches include hydraulic systems that allow the walls of the RV to expand and create additional rooms within the living quarters. Some modern RVs can comfortably sleep up to 10 people!
Causes of Recreational Vehicle Collisions
RVs may not be hard to miss on the road, but due to some vehicle-specific factors, recreational vehicles can be dangerous.
Some of the common causes for an RV crash include:
- Blind spots
- Failure to navigate turns properly
- Fatigued driving
- Inexperienced driving
- Overcorrecting driver
- Poor RV maintenance
- Tire blowouts
- Weight imbalance
Considering the unique structure of an RV, passengers are at risk for injury in a collision simply because of the number of objects and surfaces that could impact the human body. An additional risk for injury occurs because many RV passengers do not wear their safety belts.
When it comes to other vehicles and their passengers, the risk for severe injury is posed by the large size and heavy weight of a recreational vehicle, which could cause significant damage in many types of accidents.
Types of RV Accidents
RVs pose similar dangers to a large truck, and an accident with a recreational vehicle can be just as damaging.
RVs are commonly involved in the following types of accidents:
It is essential for drivers who have little experience behind the wheel of an RV to take it slowly, and be extra cautious around curves and sharp turns. It is always better to reduce speed than maneuver a vehicle in a way that makes you uncomfortable.

I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
