Justice And Compensation For Oil Field Truck Accident Victims

Oil And Gas Truck Drivers Follow Different Regulations
The oil and gas industry is booming, and the industry giants are doing everything they can to capitalize on that growth. Truck drivers in the industry are exempt from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) service laws, which were put in place to protect truck drivers and others on the road. For oil and gas truck drivers, waiting time does not count toward hours of service; this can extend a work shift by several hours.
Not only are drivers’ shifts too long, the infrastructure to support their work is not substantial enough for the demands. Often, it takes a lawsuit to document poorly maintained equipment or heavy use of roads that were not built for industrial traffic.
