Industrial truck accident injuries can be very severe. Because of the possible deadly contents of the cargo, the injured party could suffer toxic exposure and long-term brain damage on top of broken bones and other injuries.
Industrial Truck Accident Injuries | Background
In Central and South Texas, there are many industries that utilize large trucks in order to bring in and ship out materials. Whether it is carrying manufactured products, oil and gas or other natural resources, such as equipment for the Eagle Ford Shale, a truck that becomes involved in an accident can cause serious injuries to other drivers, passengers and workers if the accident occurred in an industrial setting.

Industrial Truck Accident Injuries | Spilled Cargo
Not only are workers often injured in industrial truck accidents, but other individuals can become injured on the roads as trucks are hauling their materials to and from manufacturing facilities and other job sites. When a truck spills its cargo, other drivers may not have time to react, resulting in serious accidents and often multicar pileups. The spills can often involve liquid or solid materials and are sometimes hazardous. We represent the rights of individuals who have been injured as the result of an industrial truck’s cargo that has spilled onto a highway or other roadway.
