Philadelphia Marcellus Shale Fatal Accident Lawyers

If You Have Lost a Loved One in a Natural Gas Drilling Accident

Extracting natural gas from the large Marcellus Shale Formation in Pennsylvania is a competitive, fast-paced and demanding industry where all of the players are constantly trying to get an edge over the others. In many cases, this means cutting corners and turning a blind eye to safety regulations.

While this may be good for the gas companies’ bottom lines, it does nothing to ensure the safety of workers. On the contrary, it puts them at risk of serious and often fatal injuries. If your loved one was killed while working on a Marcellus Shale job site, you and your children have the right to seek benefits through the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.

The process for securing these benefits can be quite complex, and it is important that you have an experienced attorney who understands the law and can guide you through this sometimes intimidating process. At McCann & Wall, LLC, we provide strong, compassionate representation to families who have lost a loved one in a workplace accident. For a free consultation, please call our Philadelphia Marcellus Shale accident lawyers at 215-569-8488 or 302-888-1221, or contact us online.

Helping You Through a Difficult Time

Under Pennsylvania law, spouses and minor children are able to seek certain benefits after the work-related death of a loved one. These may include medical bills that accrued prior to death, funeral expenses, support for the surviving spouse and certain benefits for any minor children. We will be there with you at every step in the process, working diligently to see that your interests and the interests of your children are fully considered.

In addition, if your loved one’s death was caused due to a drilling equipment malfunction or the negligence of another, you may have grounds for a separate wrongful death claim. We will provide a thorough review of your case and help you understand your legal options. We have substantial experience with cases involving defective industrial equipment and machinery, and you can rely on us to seek the maximum level of compensation available for your case.
