Pittsburgh Gas Well Injury Lawyer
Representing Injured Victims and Their Families
Pennsylvania is unique in that our state contains gas exploration and drilling wells. One of the major ones is Marcellus Shale. The underground rock formation is massive and spreads throughout not just Pennsylvania but also Ohio, West Virginia and New York. Unfortunately, due to the pressure to gain more energy resources, and quickly, drilling measures have increased rapidly. However, this has created an increase in gas well leaks and explosions causing serious injuries and even deaths to workers and contractors.

Property owners and land owners of gas well sites as well as the employers, manufacturers of equipment and other third parties can be negligent for your injuries.
