Chemical Spills in Gas Drilling Accidents

The Effect of Chemical Spills in Gas Drilling Accidents

Chemical spills are a very real concern for oil and gas field workers who are involved in drilling rig accidents, gas field accidents, gas truck accidents, pipeline explosions and more. Gas drilling accidents can result in a wide variety of destructive consequences such as explosions and chemical spills that can cause a great deal of injury to victims, both as employees and individuals who happen to live in the area and are also susceptible to the effects. In either case, it is critical to seek the assistance of an experienced gas drilling accident attorney who can aggressively pursue your case.

Chemical Burns and Groundwater Contamination

The two most common types of injuries that occur in chemical spills are chemical burns and ill-effects suffered as a result of groundwater contamination. Those who come in contact with spilled chemicals can suffer from burn injuries due to inhalation, or when toxic chemicals come into contact with the skin. The types of burn injuries caused by chemicals can be just as damaging as those sustained in explosions and fires, if not worse. Groundwater contamination has a more gradual impact on the environment and those who live in surrounding areas, and class-action lawsuits are often employed to seek compensation for larger numbers of victims.
