Drilling Accidents

Philadelphia Gas Drilling Accident Attorney

The Marcellus Shale Formation is a valuable source of natural gas and oil that is below more than 60 percent of Pennsylvania. One way in which gas companies extract these resources is by drilling into the ground. People who drill into the ground for a living understand that there are certain risks associated with the job. However, gas and oil companies are required to take steps to ensure the safety of their workers. In addition, gas drills are supposed to be manufactured and designed properly. When any of these entities fail in their jobs, serious injuries or death to workers can be the result.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a drilling accident, it is absolutely vital to have an experienced attorney on your side fighting for you. An experienced lawyer will find every source of compensation for your injuries. Injured workers across Pennsylvania and beyond have relied on Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., to fight for them after a serious workplace injury. Contact us today.

After a drilling accident at work, you will be entitled to workers' compensation. Unfortunately, workers' compensation provides for only two-thirds of your wages and your medical expenses. If your employer is solely responsible for your injuries, then workers' compensation is your sole remedy. Of course, if someone other than your employer is responsible for harming you — such as a subcontractor, manufacturer or product designer — our law firm can work to hold that party liable in a personal injury suit. In a personal injury claim, you can recover your full amount of lost income, as well as compensation for pain and suffering. Our lawyers will look at your accident from every perspective to determine every potentially liable party.
