Eagle Ford Shale Truck Accidents
Deadly crashes keep occuring in San Antonio as the Eagle Ford Shale area sees more and more truck traffic. Trucking companies in the Eagle Ford Shale region, and even companies from surrounding states, continue to hire more and more 18- wheeler truck drivers. As a result there has been an increase in trucking accidents on Texas roads. Since the beginning of the boom, Eagle Ford Shale truck accidents involving commercial vehicles have increased more than tenfold according to crash data compiled by the Texas Department of Transportation. That is why at Carabin & Shaw our dedicated San Antonio truck accident attorney is working everyday to represent the interests of innocent people who happen to live and work near the same roads these truckers are temporarily using. No one should have to experience undue pain and suffering at the hands of a reckless driver—our lawyers at Carabin & Shaw are here to advocate for your rights and obtain the greatest available amount of compensation for you and your family.
Because of the size of commercial trucks and the weight of their heavy loads, when they are involved in an accident the results can be devastating. Our attorneys have represented clients who were healthy, able-bodied, and variously employed, but are now paralyzed, ill, and unable to find adequate employment as a result. No one in San Antonio should have to suffer these consequences alone or without recourse. The law is here to protect you, and our lawyers are here to make sure that is exactly what happens. One of the first steps in our legal process is determining the cause of the accident.
There are many reasons that Eagle Ford Shale truck accidents occur. Some of the most common reasons are:
- Driver lacked proper experience or training
- Truck was overloaded
- Poor visibility
- Oil field injury
- Driver fatigue
- Aggressive driving behavior
- Poor road conditions
- Failure to yield to other cars on the road
- Driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol
If you have been involved in any of the above kinds of Eagle Ford Shale truck accidents, you have rights and you should be able to exercise those rights by pursuing the responsible parties and holding them accountable for their negligence in a trucking accident. Not all of the above claims or causes are easy to spot right off the bat, but we have the experience necessary to look at your circumstances and figure out which factors were contributing and which were not. Many people who choose to self-represent make so many mistakes at this point in their strategy that they are rarely able to proceed. Fortunately, there is no reason for that to happen to you.
