Oil & Gas Field Service Truck Accidents
Oil field service trucks are larger and more dangerous than many other commercial vehicles on the roads. These heavy trucks are often driven down small local county roads and farm-to-market roads by drivers who are not familiar with the area in which they are driving. This is a dangerous combination and leads to wrecks that result in serious injuries to local residents and others.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle accident with an oil field service truck, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. At The Callahan Law Firm, we focus on personal injury and wrongful death cases in and around Houston and throughout Texas.

The Dangers of Gas and Oil Field Service Trucks
Many oil and gas field truck accidents and injuries could have been prevented if not for the carelessness or recklessness of one or more companies or employees. Many of these truck accidents are the result of driver fatigue, distracted driving, failure to maintain equipment, driver error and other forms of negligence.
The heavy equipment used in the oil and gas industry is transported by heavy duty service trucks. These trucks transport the equipment and material necessary to drill and develop oil and gas wells. Heavy tanker trucks and vacuum trucks are also used by oil and gas companies to haul away oil, saltwater and other waste products from well sites. As the pace of oil and gas exploration picks up in an area, so do the number of heavy oil field service trucks traveling your roads.
