Explosions and Fires
Gas drilling accidents are often very serious situations that occur when a piece of equipment or machinery part fails to function properly, or when an oil or gas field worker displays negligence and does not take the proper precautions to prevent an accident from occurring. A common consequence of a gas drilling accident is explosions and fires that arise due to heated chemicals or materials, or natural gas explosions that occur when cracks in the ground cause an upsurge of combustible natural gas that comes into contact with a heat source sufficient to ignite the gas.
Compensation for Gas Drilling Accidents
Explosions and fires that result from gas drilling accidents often cause very serious thermal or chemical burn injuries. While many oil and natural gas field workers may be able to seek compensation through workers compensation benefits, some may face additional challenges when their employers or the responsible parties take unethical measures to avoid paying deserved compensation to those who have been injured on the job. A skilled gas drilling accident attorney can aggressively pursue your need for financial compensation from these unethical entities.
