With Road Trips on the Rise, Accidents and Injuries Might Increase
2020 is becoming the year of the road trip for many families, as flights and overseas vacations are canceled due to the pandemic. Road trips allow families to see large parts of the country and enjoy quality time, though with many more vacationers on the road this year, there are additional risks of accidents and injuries, as well. If you are injured, contact a personal injury lawyer in Beverly Hills for assistance right away.
RVs and Motorhomes
Many families are choosing to buy or rent RVs or motorhomes for their summer vacations. When an inexperienced driver gets behind the wheel of these large vehicles, however, it can be a risky situation. These vehicles are difficult to maneuver, have extensive blind spots, and are highly prone to rollover accidents. All of this can mean more RV and motorhome crashes, resulting in injuries to other motorists on the road.
RVs are not the only factor that makes a road trip risky. Some of the following are some additional issues that might lead to crashes:
- Drivers who try to stay on the road too long and fall asleep at the wheel
- Drivers who are distracted by their kids and other family members in the car
- Drivers who do have their vehicles inspected prior to leaving, leading to a malfunction
- Drivers who might be unsure of where they are going, which can lead to erratic driving
