Holding one of the largest reserves of natural gas in the nation, the Marcellus Shale rock formation located beneath much of Pennsylvania and surrounding states has become of significant interest to oil and gas companies, drillers, developers and others in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation. Drilling technologies, such as horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, have made it possible to extract the natural gas from the rock formation. Unfortunately, these processes can lead to worker injuries. If you have been injured in an oil or gas drilling accident, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits.
A Violent Extraction Process Can Cause Severe Injuries
Drilling for Marcellus Shale as well as other oil and gas drilling can put workers in dangerous conditions and lead to permanent, disabling injuries such as loss of limbs, burn injuries, disfigurement, back injuries, shoulder injuries, fractures and other catastrophic injuries. Our attorneys at Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo help injured oil drillers, natural gas drillers and other oil and gas workers in obtaining workers' compensation benefits and other benefits to which they may be entitled for injuries resulting from all types of oil and gas accidents, including:
- Well blowouts
