Tanker truck accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries and death. Tanker trucks are often used to haul hazardous, highly flammable liquid, which can erupt into flames and may cause an explosion. Many people involved in car accidents with tanker trucks suffer severe burns and smoke inhalation injuries. Injuries resulting from an accident with a tanker truck can be extremely expensive to treat and cause long-term pain and suffering. Injured tanker truck victims can face painful and expensive recovery. Broken limbs can leave a tanker truck accident victim unable to work for weeks or months. More severe injuries, such as paralysis or traumatic brain injury, can mean a lifetime of medical bills and physical therapy. The tanker truck accident may completely change life for the victim as well as their spouse, children and other loved ones.

Tanker Trucks Pose Unique Dangers on the Roads

There are many reasons why Tanker Trucks and all large trucks cause wrecks. Often the reason is negligence or recklessness on the part of the truck driver or trucking company, such as:

    • Aggressive driving or tailgating
    • Speeding and ignoring reduced truck speed limits
    • Long work shifts / unrealistic travel schedules
    • Driver fatigue
    • Distracted driving, such as cell phone use
    • Impaired driving (i.e., alcohol and drug abuse)
    • Failure to inspect tires, brakes and lights
    • Failure to install blind-spot mirrors

Contributing factors to rollovers include:

  • An improperly filled tank
  • High center of gravity for the truck
  • Speeding around a curve
  • Improperly trained drivers
  • Stopping short

If the tank is not filled properly, the liquid will move freely inside of the Tanker Truck and cause its weight to shift and making the truck very difficult to control. The driver may also lose causing the rollover Tanker Truck to roll.
Tanker Trucks must adhere to a specific set of regulations different from other tractor- trailer trucks. Because of the hazardous nature of the loads, Tanker Trucks must meet strict engineering guidelines mechanics for these vehicles must be specially trained.
Negligence on the part of the driver or the people responsible for filling the Tanker Truck tank and can result in a tragic accident. Owners who hire the drivers or enforce training protocols can also be responsible for a Tanker Truck accident.

First, I want to tell you I hired another firm for my case before Marion, I did not choose carefully the first time is all I will say. Secondly, I would like to say that I do not give the highest rating to many people or companies without earning it. I can say Marion earned it!! She and everyone I came into contact with in her firm handled my case with the utmost professionalism, as well as true empathy for my situation, while not missing a detail about the facts of the case. I can not leave out her paralegal Janice, she was totally on the ball at all times. My case was a personal injury case ( I was hit by a tractor trailer) which was settled for a very fair settlement! I am sure whatever your case involves, she will handle it in the same manner. She is a great person and an awesome attorney!! She will fight for you!! Jeffrey, a Personal Injury Client

I got into a serious accident with a tractor trailer two years ago, one that took me out of commission for months. The trucking company was fighting my case, saying I was the one who caused the accident. Luckily, I had Dan Munley at my side. He got me the money to help pay the medical bills and much more. He really pulled through for me and my family and I am eternally grateful to him. Trucking Accident Client
