Oil Tanker Accident Attorneys in San Antonio

Working to Secure the Just Recovery You Deserve

Have you noticed the oil tanker traffic on Texas roads? And, it's not just oil tankers. There are all types of vehicles traveling our interstate highways, our county roads, even our farm roads, going to and from the Eagle Ford Shale and Barnett Shale drilling rigs.

These trucks are delivering heavy equipment and supplies and carrying away loads of oil and natural gas. At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we understand how to handle cases involving oil tankers and other tank or utility trucks, having represented people injured in truck accidents since 1990.

Call (210) 774-6445 or contact us online for a free initial consultation with one of our oil tanker accident attorneys in San Antonio.

Help for People Injured Because of the Texas Drilling Boom

You hear a lot about how dangerous it is to be an oil and gas worker. As dangerous as oil rigs can be, it can be just as dangerous for drivers on Texas roadways because of the heavy traffic from oil and gas drilling. It seems as though an I-35 oil tanker crash happens every other day or someone narrowly misses getting into an accident with an oil tanker or another type of big rig—even the smaller utility trucks. Often, these incidents occur on a county road or farm road that wasn't built to handle this kind of traffic in the first place.

These accidents are often the result of negligence, such as:

  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Texting while driving
  • Falling asleep behind the wheel
  • An employer's lack of proper truck maintenance

Call The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery

We work hard to find out why your truck accident happened, and we work to hold the driver or employer (or both) accountable. There is no excuse for poor driving or poor maintenance. The drilling boom across Texas on the Eagle Ford Shale and Barnett Shale plays is a good thing—except when innocent drivers and passengers are injured because of it. Our San Antonio oil tanker accident lawyers work to hold negligent parties accountable for the harm they cause.

We offer free consultations for all prospective clients. Please contact us online or call (210) 774-6445 to speak with us about your case. We serve clients throughout the state of Texas.
