Motor Home and RV Accident Lawyers in Salt Lake City

Motor homes are passenger vehicles built on a truck frame. They are heavy, hard to stop, and especially difficult to control in windy conditions. In a crash situation, the occupants of the recreational vehicle (RV) are often unprotected, and the occupants of smaller passenger vehicles are vulnerable to massive injuries or even death.

How We Can Help Your RV or Motor Home Accident Claim
Our law firm has extensive experience in truck accident litigation, and RV and motor home accidents often present similar challenges to these crashes. We can bring in professional investigators and accident reconstruction specialists if liability is disputed. We also have a network of medical experts and life care planners who work with us to ensure each client’s claim accurately reflects their future needs.
Negligence and Liability
Our attorneys are exceptionally knowledgeable about laws pertaining to recreational vehicles. Utah limits the weight and length of RVs and regulates how and when passenger cars and trailers can be towed by a motor home or RV. For example, Utah law requires that an RV be able to stop in 40 feet at 20 mph, which in turn may require auxiliary brakes if towing a heavy load. Many owners of these vehicles do not follow the rules, which can help us prove negligence in your case.
We examine each accident from every possible angle to determine why it happened and uncover evidence of the other driver’s fault. Our attorneys may ask questions like:
- Were the brakes or tires of the RV or motor home worn?
- Was the trailer or trailing car properly hitched with working taillights?
- Was the RV operator speeding or traveling too fast to prevent veering in crosswind conditions?
- Were children in the RV allowed to move about rather than being seat belted?
- Was the RV driver distracted by a map or cell phone, or drowsy from hours of freeway travel without rest?
Compensation and Damages
Cutt, Kendell & Olson also excels at demonstrating damages. Motor home accidents commonly result in a catastrophic injury or a wrongful death, and we take great pains to ensure our clients are compensated for the physical, financial, and emotional aftermath. The damages related to such injuries rarely stop at medical bills, though you may find yourself owing thousands for specialized care. We also calculate needs such as decreased earning potential, household or daily aid, and pain and suffering. There are many challenges tied to lifelong disabling injuries, and we do all we can to make sure our clients have the financial means to face them.
