Scranton Fracking Accident Attorney
Serving Oil and Gas Workers and Families in Lackawanna County
Fracking shale rock, also known as hydraulic fracturing, is used to unearth reserves of gas and oil deep underground. Fracking, however, is a dangerous process involving harsh chemicals, potentially hazardous machinery, and precarious procedures that can lead to harm for workers as well as individuals living around the fracking sites.
When you or a loved one has been seriously harmed due to fracking, contact Rogan Law. Our lawyer will fight for the full and fair compensation you need to recover.
Aggressive Representation in Complex Cases
At Rogan Law, our lawyer proudly represents oil and gas industry workers and their families. We also serve the community at large, helping local residents who have been harmed due to the byproducts of the fracking process. We are committed to standing up for the injured, offering them the legal support they need and holding negligent parties accountable when harm is done. Through personalized representation, constant communication, and a deep understanding of the relevant laws, our fracking injury attorney in Scranton is well prepared to use his extensive experience to stand up for the safety of our communities and the recovery of our injured clients.
We handle claims stemming from fracking and Marcellus Shale drilling, including those related to:
- Natural gas explosions
- Contaminated water
- Accidents from dangerous machinery or equipment
- Truck accidents on or near drilling sites
- Subsidence claims
- Chemical exposures
- Property damage
Companies engaging in fracking or drilling have a duty to provide a safe work site and take measures to contain and prevent any fracking-related dangers from seeping into the wider community. They also employ insurance companies with teams of attorneys whose priority is to protect their company’s bottom line. These insurance companies often do everything they can to minimize claims and pay out as little as possible to injured workers and families. This is where Rogan Law can help.
We will not be bullied when it comes to the health and safety of our clients and our strength in trial is a testament to our willingness to do what it takes to stand up against big corporations and their insurance companies. We have a successful track record and a solid reputation for being a firm that will fight to get our clients the full and fair compensation they are owed.
Common Injuries in the Oil and Gas Industry
The oil and gas industry is well known as one of the most dangerous jobs in the U.S., with heavy machinery routinely being used by those who have worked long hours in harsh conditions, such as in inclement weather or from great heights. Employers have a duty to provide their employees with safety measures, training, and posted warnings. A failure to do so can lead to catastrophic injury or wrongful death.
Common accidents and related injuries include:
- Broken bones or dislocations from slips or falls
- Crushed limbs from collapsed rigs or scaffolding
- Burn injuries from well blowouts and explosions
- Amputation from defective or unmaintained equipment
- Chemical exposure from toxic fumes or contaminated water
- Fractures, contusions, and brain and spine injuries from truck accidents
While workers’ compensation may cover some of your medical expenses and lost wages, these benefits do not extend to noneconomic losses, such as compensation for your pain and suffering. Our attorney can review your case and provide you with all of your legal options in seeking the full compensation you and your family needs.
In the case of a wrongful death, the family of the victim may be able to recover additional damages from third-party claims, if, for example, equipment manufacturers or a subcontractor were responsible for the loss of life. Families may even be able to file a lawsuit against the employer, in some cases.
