Negligence Claims and Natural Gas Drilling
If you have been injured by the negligence of another person or entity, you deserve to be compensated for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses such as property damages. Examples of negligence in shale gas drilling operations include:
- Natural gas explosions at the wellhead or while transporting gas
- Tremors (earthquakes) from hydraulic fracturing (fracking)
- Truck accidents
- Injuries caused by exposure to toxic chemicals
- Injuries caused by negligent property conditions
Your right may depend on whether you work for the gas drilling company and who was responsible for the accident. If you are an injured worker, you may be entitled to compensation from both workers' compensation and a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party.
