West Virginia Natural Gas Drilling Injury Attorneys
The gas drilling industry is making hundreds of millions of dollars tapping into the enormous natural gas resources here in North Central West Virginia. Working in a natural gas drilling industry is considered to be one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States because the workers hired by the gas companies are subject to the most physical and dangerous jobs imaginable. If you are a worker in the gas fields for any extended period of time, you stand a significant chance of suffering some form of an injury and the chances are even greater that you have witnessed someone suffer a severe injury. All it takes is one mishap or error in judgment or communication for an accident to occur. Workers are subject to toxic chemical exposure, dangerous explosions, fire and chemical burns, crushed limbs and amputation, and even death.
If you have been injured while working for a natural gas company you are entitled to monetary damages for your injuries to relieve the high costs of medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Potential defendants in gas explosion cases begin their investigation very quickly and insurance companies and gas mining operations will routinely attempt to save money by offering settlements worth far less than may be deserved. Therefore it is important that the explosion victim or victim’s family also conduct a prompt investigation and speak to an experienced attorney who understands the natural gas industry and the types of injuries and compensation involved.
