The current oilfield fracking boom in Texas is causing a rash of auto accidents and trucking accidents that result in multiple wrongful death cases. The hurried pace, long hours and huge equipment that comes with any oilfield boom produces oilfield accidents that put not only the oil and gas workers but also the rural residents at risk.
When an 80,000 oilfield tank truck driven by a weary driver goes around a curve in the middle of a rural road and meets the family station wagon multiple people die and that’s just what is happening. Accidents in which more than three people are killed have become so common that they have been given their own name … “Triple Trajedies”. Triple Trajedies increased in Texas from 72 in 2010 to 148 in 013 … an increase of more than 100%.
