Recreational Vehicle Accidents in Miami

Recreational Vehicle AccidentsFlorida’s popularity as an adventure and vacation destination leads to more recreational vehicles on our roads, freeways, waterways, and nearly any location imaginable, as compared to other states. We have state parks, campsites, beaches, and lakes that make our state a frequently visited place and the ideal place to own and use an RV Camper, boat, or other recreational vehicle. Given the ever-growing popularity of these types of vehicles, it is clear to see why our attorneys have been asked to represent hundreds of Floridians in recreational vehicle accidents in Miami and surrounding areas in Florida.

Driving Recreational Vehicles

Florida law does not mandate drivers hold an RV-specific license or permit when controlling their recreational vehicle, unlike many other states. Any individual with a valid Class E driving license can drive a non-commercial recreational vehicle, as defined by Florida Statute 320.01, regardless of its size, which means that there are inexperienced drivers, with potentially zero practice, on our roads, campgrounds, and bodies of water every single day. Their lack of experience could have been the cause of your or your loved one’s injury or death, without any fault of your own.

Who is Culpable?

Often, accidents are due to the negligence of one party, but sometimes the reason that accidents, such as those involving RVs, can turn deadly is due to issues originating at the point of manufacture. After careful investigation, our team of skilled attorneys and professional investigators may find that the recreational vehicle in question was defective or dangerous, and that defect or danger led to the accident you were involved in. If that is found to be the case, you may be able to seek compensation from the companies and individuals involved in the manufacture of the vehicle, including the designers, engineers, and retailer where the vehicle was purchased. Our attorneys will leave no stone unturned when seeking accountability from the responsible parties.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
