Texas seems to have more than its share of recreational vehicles on its roads and highways. Have you notices how many of them have out-of-state plates? Lots of folks want to visit us here in Texas. And who can blame them?
A lot of these oversized vehicles are as large as passenger buses and 18-wheelers — and almost as heavy. Texas law requires its drivers to carry a Class A or B license to legally operate an oversized vehicle like an RV. But many other states don’t require special permits to be able to drive RVs. And yet, they still drive them to Texas. Operators of these vehicles have a duty as great as that of drivers of 18-wheelers or buses to keep the roads safe for the rest of us.
But it doesn’t always work out that way. When these unqualified drivers bring their giant rigs into Texas, they increase the danger of a crash on the highway, injuring or killing people in smaller vehicles.
Common vehicles in the rather broad “RV” class include:
In the wrong hands, RVs – especially “oversized” Class A types – are dangerous machines. Add an incompetent driver to their size, weight, inability to quickly stop, or maneuver nimbly, and they’re rolling menaces. An RV can outweigh smaller vehicles by as much as 15 to one. Some of the most common traits include:
Other RV collision types – sometimes fatal – include:
An RV accident can cause catastrophic injuries like those in large commercial vehicle collisions. They can include:
If you or a family member has been injured in a wreck caused by a negligent or incompetent RV or motor home driver, there’s probably extensive damage to your property, along with serious injuries yourself and passengers. And the greater the damage – which could total seven figures – the more aggressive the negligent RV driver’s insurance company is likely to be in disputing your claim.

If you’ve been injured, or a family member has died, let us protect your right to collect damages for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and every other dollar that should rightfully go to you and your family.
