Recreational vehicles (also referred to as RVs) are vehicles equipped with a living space featuring areas and utilities usually found within a home, such as a kitchen area, shower and restroom, table, and bedroom area, among other possible fixtures of daily living. Like other types of vehicles, however, a recreational vehicle may become the subject of a lawsuit if an unforeseen incident were to occur. Recreational vehicle expert witnesses are knowledgeable in several facets of automotive machinery, including both business aspects and customer ownership.
Similar to many other court cases involving vehicles, recreational vehicle-related litigation often results from accidents taking place while operating an RV. In such cases, recreational vehicle expert witnesses may be asked to offer an expert opinion based on the findings of an accident investigation and reconstruction. Certain issues may have contributed to the accident during the design and manufacturing stages, including errors in safety engineering, mechanical design, materials testing, biomechanical engineering, and other important areas of vehicle construction. Other possible causes of recreational vehicle accidents may be related to human factors on behalf of the driver and/or passengers, the evidence of which may be found based on the results of said accident investigations. Mechanical inspections, fire cause and origin, or other means of investigation may be utilized depending on the nature of the accident in question.
Another common legal issue in relation to recreational vehicles is the meaning and contractual terms of vehicle warranties, as such agreements may be challenged for various reasons at a later date.
