Were You Injured In An Accident With An Oil Truck?
Oil and gas drilling in the Eagle Ford Shale Deposit has resulted in increased truck traffic in south-central Texas. Truckers, workers on drill sites, local residents and people who are traveling through the area can suffer serious injuries when oil service trucks and passenger vehicles collide.
At Marynell Maloney Law Firm, we have more than 30 years of experience handling serious injury cases. We represent injured truckers as well as people in passenger vehicles who are struck by oil service vehicles. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Representing People Struck By Oil Service Vehicles
Oil and gas drilling requires a tremendous amount of material support that must be continually trucked in to sites. This leads to many commercial trucks traveling on roads that may not have been designed for heavy traffic. The fact that some oil and gas drilling companies hire underqualified drivers or pressure their employees to make fast deliveries only increases the risk of accidents.
Our law firm uses experienced investigators to uncover evidence of liability on the part of the truck driver or oil drilling company. Examples of negligence include:
- Overweight trucks
- Unsecured loads
- Unsafe passing
- Defective brakes or safety equipment
- Driver fatigue
- Lack of driver training
It’s important to contact our lawyers as soon as possible after an accident so we can collect and preserve evidence of liability.
Representing Injured Truckers
If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to benefits from workers’ compensation regardless of who was at fault. If the accident was caused by another driver who does not work for your employer, you can seek additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver and his or her insurance company.
If your employer does not subscribe to workers’ compensation, you may have the right to sue your employer.
