Tanker Truck Problems

Tanker trucks often carry hazardous materials, chemicals and fuel. If the truck is not filled to capacity, a phenomenon called sloshing can occur. This can and does result in rollover. The contents can leak or spill from the tanker truck onto the highway.

Dangers of Spilled Tanker Truck Contents

While all types of contents can spill from trucks, some of the most dangerous are liquids such as fuel and chemicals. Liquids produce a slippery surface. Chemicals can produce chemical burns to anyone who touches them. Fuel can cause an explosion.

Injuries Produced by Content Spillage

The injuries are consistent with the type of contents the truck is hauling. Chemicals and fuel can produce significant burns that require long periods of rehabilitation and hospitalization. If radioactive substances are involved, danger of exposure can hurt motorists as well as residents that live in the area.

Experience Counts

Drivers need to train to drive tanker trucks. Maintaining control is complex if sloshing occurs. In such situations training and experience are essential. This is the duty of the trucking company and if an accident happens due to lack of training, the victim can file a claim against both the trucker and the trucking company.
