- 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 didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
Definitely recommend! Awesome
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
