The Most Dangerous Truck Accidents
Trucking accidents are always dangerous, but when a defective fuel system or poorly placed gas tank causes a fire, they are deadly. Commercial trucks are prone to tip or roll over during an accident, increasing their risk for catching fire. If you lost a family member in a truck accident fire, a lawyer can help you hold the trucking company liable.
At Domnitz & Skemp, S.C., we understand the devastation caused by truck accidents. Whether driver negligence, safety violations or a defective fuel tank is the problem, we will vigorously pursue your injury or wrongful death claim.

Adequate Compensation Is Essential to Recovery
When vehicle accidents result in fires, passengers may be trapped and unable to escape the smoke and flames. These situations are, unfortunately, often fatal. Survivors of such accidents may suffer injuries such as burns, inhalation injuries, scarring, fractures, amputations, brain injuries or spinal cord injuries.
Recovering from catastrophic injuries, including burns, will require long-term medical care from many specialists. Accident victims may need multiple surgeries, weeks in the hospital, pain management and rehabilitation. Seriously injured and disfigured victims may also need psychotherapy to adjust to life with injuries.
Our attorneys work hard to obtain compensation for all of your medical costs as well as current and future lost wages. We may seek damages for pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment of life in some cases.
Fuel System Defects
Faulty fuel systems can leak gas during an accident, especially if the truck is crushed, tips or rolls. Fuel system defects can include:
- No anti-siphoning device to keep gas from leaking
- Flaws in the tank's structure, design or placement
- Faulty gas caps, fuel lines or fuel pumps
Depending on the details of the case, we may be able to seek damages from multiple liable parties.
