Philadelphia Marcellus Shale Work Injury Lawyers
Fighting for Victims Injured in Explosions on Natural Gas Work Sites
Marcellus Shale gas drilling is among the fastest growing industries in Pennsylvania. The number of natural gas companies trying to grab a piece of the pie is constantly on the rise, and it seems that new operations are popping up every day.
With such strong competition, many companies are willing to cut corners and sidestep safety regulations in the name of profits and getting ahead in the game. This creates an extremely dangerous situation for workers and others, exposing them to the possibility of a variety of serious and sometimes fatal injuries. Working in the gas industry, injury or death by explosion is frequently a primary concern.
