West Virginia Marcellus Shale Accident Attorney

The development of techniques that make it economically advantageous to remove natural gas from the Marcellus Shale deposits has created a boon for many in our area. The race to recover the natural gas in the Marcellus Shale deposits has brought an incredible amount of what seems like overnight development. Rigs and drill sites populate our area now. There has been a huge increase in truck traffic as the companies that own the rights to that natural gas work to build and supply these sites.

This growth in activity has led to the risk of injury for workers on those rigs as well as an increase in the risk of injuries due to increased traffic on our roads.

  • Auto accidents associated with Marcellus Shale — For those who have been injured by a truck associated with one of the Marcellus Shale companies, the first question is, who is liable? Independent truck owners may be working for drilling companies that are owned by natural gas companies. The web of liability can be difficult to sift through. The legal representation you choose needs to be sophisticated enough to know whom to pursue and how to maximize your compensation.
  • Marcellus Shale rig accidents — The people working on these rigs may suffer some of the same liability questions as those injured in auto accidents. These rigs are springing up all over our area. Worker safety may not always be the top concern. Our attorneys can help you recover the compensation you deserve after being injured while working on a Marcellus Shale rig.
