Information on Drill Site Fires

Working at a gas drilling site is an extraordinarily dangerous job, and those who take on this profession put their lives at risk every day. In recognition of the hazards of this workplace, there are extensive governmental safety regulations to prevent injury and death. When a failure to observe these rules, negligence, or a disregard for human life contribute to a drill site fire, the victims have a right to compensation. A West Virginia gas drilling lawyer from Hartley Law Group can speak with you about the accident to determine the scope of your claim and help you take legal action.

Burn injuries are among the most common types of harm inflicted by drill site fires and explosions. Depending on the circumstances, victims will suffer second or third-degree burns that can take weeks or months to heal. They may require emergency medical intervention such as amputation or skin grafts, as well as cosmetic surgery to repair scarring or disfigurement. Even those who aren't caught in the fire itself may be exposed to toxic vapor & chemical exposure when poisons from the burning are released into the surrounding atmosphere.
