Eagle Ford Traffic Fatalities Soar by Oil & Gas and Oil Field Services Trucking Accident Injury Lawyers Hill Law Firm
Anyone that lives in South Texas can attest to the exponential increase in traffic and business since approximately 2008. That increase in good things like jobs, standard of living, wages, and economic prosperity has already ushered in some bad like accidents, pollutions, injuries, and infrastructure issues. A recent report by the Texas Department of Transportation has quantified the increase in commercial motor vehicle accidents in the Eagle Ford Shale communities over the past 3 years. The increase in commercial motor vehicle accidents is astonishing. The following are the three year increases in select counties:
- Frio: +200%
- Gonzales: +204%
- Karnes: +1,150%
- La Salle: +418%
- McMullen: +1,050%
These increases are unacceptable. Communities in South Texas are finally standing up to the companies that are taking advantage.
