The Dangers Of Gas Well Work

Gas wells can cause injuries for many reasons such as:

  • Explosions
  • Equipment malfunctions
  • Accidents during site setup
  • Vehicle accidents to and from the site
  • Exposing workers to toxins

Depending on the specifics of the case, workers may suffer burn injuries, eye injuries, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. If workers are exposed to toxins in fracking fluids, they may become ill.

These types of injuries are often severe and in some cases permanent. If you face a long recovery or permanent disability, it is crucial that you receive adequate compensation.

We have the experience to calculate the full value of your past, present and future losses. This helps ensure that you receive sufficient compensation. You don't want to try to do this on your own — a lawyer can make a significant difference in your case.
