Truck Accidents & Oil Spills

San Diego Truck Accident Attorneys

Trucks are enormous vehicles that often carry extensive cargo, and along with it, large amounts of oil and gasoline. When oil spills or leaks onto the roads and highways, it can lead to safety hazards for other cars and trucks.

Oil spill accidents can cause:

  • Fires and explosions: When a truck is carrying oil or gasoline, a crash can cause a fire or explosion and lead to devastating burns and injuries.
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals: Some trucks may be carrying dangerous substances that can cause chemical burns or adverse health reactions when exposed to victims nearby.
  • Slippery roads: The slipperiness caused by an oil spill can cause drivers to lose control of a car.
