Marcellus Shale Drilling Accidents Lawyers in Pittsburgh

Fire & Explosion Attorneys Helping Injured Victims in Allegheny County & Throughout Western PA

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.

BIG NUMBERS AND DOLLAR SIGNS CAN’T TELL YOU WHETHER A LAW FIRM IS RIGHT FOR YOU

When you’re choosing an advocate to fight for your rights, the first question you want to ask is, “Does this attorney understand someone like me?” and “Have they had success in handling a case like mine?”
