Clarksburg Oil And Gas Injury Lawyer

As the natural gas industry has grown in our area, so does the increased amount of workers along with an increased amount of safety hazards. We see in the news every day the incidents that occur in the oil and gas fields in our region, whether they could have been prevented or not. You hear about the expansion of the industry in Fairmont, Clarksburg, and even up to Morgantown.  As the industry grows and gathers millions of dollars worth of natural gas and distributes, there can be safety hazards.

Although most oil and gas companies within the industry follow proper safety procedures, there are some that do not. Whether they are inexperienced or hire workers that are, a few in the industry do not take safety seriously, and that is when injuries occur. Protecting employees and employees of other companies is not always a priority of a few people, that is when workers need to understand their rights.

Injured Clarksburg Oil and Gas Workers Should Know Their Rights

If you are a worker in the industry, as many of our friends and family have become, it is essential to understand the dangers and take every precaution to prevent injuries such as

  • Natural Gas Explosions
  • Natural Gas Trucking Accidents
  • Natural Gas Drilling Injuries

Some common types of injuries that could have been avoided through proper safety precautions including:

  • Burns from Explosions
  • Crushing Injuries
  • Broken Bones
  • Dismemberments
  • Deep Wounds
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries

If you are injured in any of these types of accidents, you are eligible for compensation to take care of your lost wages, pain, suffering, and medical bills. It is essential to have an attorney that has experience in this area to identify what is available for your recovery. Victims of these types of accidents face significant hurdles that are set up by insurance companies, defense attorneys, and even their own employers.

There are specific tricks of the trade that will be utilized to minimize a claim and save the insurance providers as much money as possible. This could include devaluing your claim through expert medical testimony and even offering a settlement before full medical treatment is provided.
