Barnett Shale Truck Accident Lawyers

The Gas Tanker Accident Impact that the Drilling Boom has had on Texas Roadways

The oil and gas boom in Texas has without question been good for the state economy and the U.S. as a whole. Drilling activity on the Barnett Shale is said to have generated thousands of new jobs and added significantly to the amount of U.S.-produced oil and natural gas. But the boom has also added significantly to the amount of tanker traffic going to and from the Barnett Shale.

At The Law Office of Tyler & Peery, we have represented people injured in truck accidents since 1990. We understand the impact that the drilling boom has had on our roadways in Texas - more trucks on the road, which means more accidents.

San Antonio Shale Truck Accident Attorneys

Much of the Barnett Shale drilling takes place off county roads, even farm roads, and these rural Texas roads weren't built to handle traffic from large trucks. The lanes aren't wide enough and the trucks go too fast. But right now, with the drilling boom, there's no other way around it.

That's why it's more important than ever that oil and gas workers who drive large vehicles on these county and farm roads use extra caution. But, unfortunately, you hear news stories about truck accidents on a regular basis.
