Marcellus Shale Truck Accidents
Shale Trucks: The Dangers
Marcellus shale trucks are heavy-duty, load-bearing commercial vehicles that are used for transporting valuable materials to and from natural gas fields on the Marcellus Formation. These commercial vehicles are heavy, powerful and dangerous for anyone who finds themselves involved in an accident with them. Marcellus shale trucks have been indicated as a cause of road damage due to their massive weight, mostly on rural roads that were not designed for these types of transportation vehicles. Other factors, such as driver negligence, can greatly increase the risk of a serious accident. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a Marcellus shale truck, it is imperative that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.
Marcellus shale trucks are considerably heavier than standard vehicles, and even many other commercial vehicles. Because of this, Marcellus shale truck accidents carry a much higher potential of personal injuries such as broken bones, head or brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis and death. For those who do survive, the costs associated with recovery can quickly overwhelm even the most prepared individual or family. Those who have been injured in a Marcellus shale truck accident should take advantage of their right to seek compensation for their injuries from those responsible.
