Marcellus Shale Drilling Accidents Attorneys
Not too long ago, a natural gas formation was discovered along the east coast, starting in New York, running through Pennsylvania and continuing down to West Virginia. Named the Marcellus Shale, this deposit has caused numerous drilling companies to flock to our communities in order to access and extract the gas.
While this new industry has pumped life into the local economy, it can and has caused significant harm to the families, workers and the environment of the area. Unstable gas lines are at risk for explosion, injuring residents and destroying property. Overworked drilling employees and contractors can be the source of disastrous truck accidents as they transport rigs to and from gas sites. And fracking sediment may be deposited into public water sources, causing contamination.
