Oil Service Truck Accident Lawyer in San Antonio

Oil Field Accident Representation

Since the Texas oil boom in 2009, accidents involving trucks has increased 50%. While working at the drill site can definitely be dangerous, there has been a significant escalation in accidents involving oil field truckers. Many of these accidents could have been avoided were it not for the corporate pressure placed on the drivers to drive extremely long hours with poorly maintained vehicles.

Common Reasons for Oil Trucking Accidents

The oil industry requires round-the-clock support and supplies trucked into drill sites. In some cases, Texas drilling companies have hired less than qualified drivers to drive their rigs.

Below is a list of common causes of trucking accidents in San Antonio:

  • Lack of driver training
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe passing
  • Driver fatigue
  • Overweight truck loads
  • Poorly maintained rigs
  • Unsecured loads

Hours of Service Rules Overlooked or Abused

Many of the accidents involving oil service truck drivers occur as a result of the driver falling asleep at the wheel. With the exception of oil field truckers, all commercial truck drivers are regulated under the federal highway regulations to not be driving more than 14 hours following 10 consecutive hours off duty. These regulations were put into place in order to avoid company companies pressuring their employees to drive fatigued as fatigued driving can be just as dangerous as drunk driving.

Oil truck drivers are exempt to these regulations. Instead, they can be asked to work up 24 hours at a time with the 14 hours of service clock resetting while they are waiting on site to unload. Drivers can be forced to wait up to 36 hours with no sleeping quarters to unload a Bulk Transfer of Frac Sand, for example.
