Representing Victims of RV and Motor Home Crashes
You have seen RVs and motor homes on the roads. They are large, heavy, difficult to slow down at high speeds, and a collision with one can be deadly. A normal passenger vehicle is no match for a motor home in a collision. If the motor home driver is at fault, you have a right to financial compensation for your pain and suffering. Contact our law firm to speak with a skilled and aggressive motor home accident lawyer. You can speak with one of our Minnesota personal injury lawyers about your case free of charge.
RV Accidents and Injuries in Minnesota
Drivers do not need a special operator’s license to drive an RV or motor home in Minnesota. Anyone with a regular Class D license can drive one, which means there can be inexperienced RV drivers on the road with you. Depending on the RV’s height and engine size, an RV can weigh up to two-and-a-half tons. Our lawyers have handled RV accident cases caused by the following:
- Inexperienced RV drivers
- Overloaded motor homes
- Careless driving and speeding
- Poorly maintained motor homes
- Poorly balanced RVs
- Intoxicated RV drivers
In addition to the purpose-built motor homes, an RV can also be a camper or trailer hitched to a pickup truck. These types of RVs are prone to becoming detached from the trailer hitch. Inexperienced drivers often fail to understand the larger turning radius required by these vehicles. All motor homes require a tremendous stopping distance, which many drivers don’t realize before it is too late. A motor home can cause catastrophic damage when it collides with a vehicle, pedestrian, motorcycle, or bicyclist.
Compensation for Your RV Accident Injuries
Our RV accident attorneys will vigorously pursue your rights while you focus on your recovery and rehabilitation. Depending on your case, you might be able to recover damages for your:
- Medical bills

Proving liability in an RV accident case is different from a regular vehicle accident. Small details such as poor tire pressure make a big difference in an RV and motor home crash case. We will investigate your claim and map out a legal strategy to get the best possible result. Contact our office to schedule a free consultation.
