Property Damage Caused by Gas Drilling Accidents
In virtually every oil and gas industry accident, the two most sought-after points of information include the number of dead or injured, and the total cost of property damages. While it may be very difficult to assign a monetary value to one's life in the event of a wrongful death, it is decidedly less complex of a process to assign value to property damage that was caused by a gas field accident such as a drill rig accident, pipeline explosion and more. A West Virginia gas drilling accident lawyer can help to determine the true extent of your property damages, and pursue adequate compensation to recover those losses in court.
There are many well-known cases where gas drilling accidents have resulted in monumental property damages to individual property owners as well as large swaths of land. Effective pursuit of compensation should include the value of the property and damaged or destroyed structures, and should take into account any planning that was halted or canceled because of the disaster. Groundwater contamination near residential areas is one area where the property damages can be especially high because of their impact on local, previously drinkable reservoirs. In any scenario, property damages caused by gas drilling accidents can be quite extensive.
