Natural Gas Trucking Accidents In West Virginia

It is estimated that drilling and fracking one gas well on the Marcellus Shale takes approximately 1,000 truck trips. Preparing the site and removing the gas requires water pumper trucks, tanker trucks for fresh and contaminated water, and trucks that carry sand, cement, well equipment, drilling equipment, chemicals and gas storage tanks.

Holding Negligent Drivers And Companies Accountable

Fracking vehicle accidents can happen for many of the same reasons as other commercial trucking accidents, including:

  • Reckless driving and speeding
  • Fatigue from working too many hours
  • Lack of training
  • Defective truck parts
  • Failure to maintain safe vehicles
  • Road defects
  • Distracted or drunk driving

Depending on the cargo the trucks are carrying, they may be extremely heavy. Some trucks carry dangerous chemicals and toxins, including natural gas. A collision with one of these trucks may result in fire or explosion.

Regardless of the cargo, a commercial truck can cause catastrophic or fatal injuries to people in passenger vehicles.

We also represent families who lose loved ones to wrongful death.
