From motorcycle crashes to collisions involving pedestrians, traffic accidents take many forms. In San Francisco, and in other California cities, recreational vehicle accidents can be particularly dangerous. If you drive an RV, or ride along in a recreational vehicle with your family, you should try to be aware of the potential risks that are associated with this pastime. At Abramson Smith Waldsmith, our law firm is very familiar with the devastation that these crashes often bring.

Driving an RV can be a great way to spend time with the family, see the country and take on an adventure. Unfortunately, things can go wrong, such as a traffic collision shattering the entire trip you had planned. Each RV accident is different and some result in the loss of life, while others cause serious injuries and damage to property. Following an RV crash, it is vital to examine all of your options as you try to piece your life together and look at the full picture, including seemingly minor details.

RV accidents can be especially bad for a number of reasons. For example, you may not be used to driving an RV, or you could have reduced visibility while driving. Worse yet, it may take you longer to slow down, which can also lead to a collision, and the sheer size of an RV can result in a worse outcome.

If you visit our motor vehicle accidents page, you can go over even more material that is related to recreational vehicle accidents and other topics concerning traffic crashes.

Vehicle Accidents

There are two things to establish in any motor vehicle accident case: the cause of the accident (fault) and the full cost of the injuries and losses. As we prepare your case, we will investigate both of these.


& Serious Injuries

People suffering from a brain injury, spinal cord injury or other severe injury will require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy and other long-term care.


Abuse & Molestation

Claims related to sports and recreation injuries can be complicated. These cases often include issues involving waivers and the “assumption of risk” defense.


& Spine Injuries

When you or a loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), life changes dramatically. Even mild TBIs can lead to years of recovery and rehabilitation.
