Gas Drilling Accidents: Chemical Spills

West Virginia gas drilling accidents involving explosions receive a great deal of attention in the press, but fewer people are aware of the major damage caused to workers in the vicinity of chemical spills. Toxic vapor & chemical exposure can cause long term health complications such a respiratory illness and cancer. Illnesses and injuries resulting from chemical spills won't always appear immediately after the accident, and if you have been exposed you should seek a medical examination. Some conditions may not manifest for weeks, months or years after the incident. Chemical burn injuries are also common at the site of a spill.

Spills are frequently the result of a gas field accident caused by negligence or faulty equipment, and they can easily lead to drill site fires. They also occur in gas truck accidents on the road where large tanker trucks are involved in a collision and injure other drivers and passengers. Beyond the immediate injuries inflicted upon people at the scene of the accident, chemical spills are also capable of significant and widespread property damages. Toxic chemicals can swiftly enter the water supply, which is difficult and expensive to clean up and will usually cause property values in the area to suffer. Residents in the area who have been poisoned can take legal action.
