Fracking Accidents

Fracking Accident Lawyer in Pennsylvania

The process of hydraulic fracturing in the energy industry is popularly known as fracking. It is a type of drilling practice for gas or oil. However, in the process, instead of a drill to bore through the earth, people use millions of gallons of thick fluid that breaks the underground layer and release the gas or oil at the right place from where it can be extracted easily. Fracking is becoming a popular method to extract the fuel from the underground as the other conventional sources are getting dried up. However, the bigger concern of all the environmentalists as well as the citizens of Pennsylvania is that fracking is becoming one of the biggest reasons for contamination of the underground drinking water. As a result, it is becoming a very important factor in the deterioration of health for many people in the area. If you and your loved ones are suffering from some health hazards due to fracking and contaminated water, then you must go to a Washington, PA injury lawyer immediately as he or she will be able to guide you through the legal process of claiming compensation.

When enquired, the companies who do fracking claim that they use only water in order to create a pressure and break through the layers of rock to penetrate the fuel underneath. However, what they don’t say is that they use many harmful chemicals too which helps the liquid to break through easily. Now, these chemicals always have a chance to get mixed with the groundwater and pollute the water everyone consumes. After consumption of this water, if you or your family member suffers from any health hazards, then you must get in touch with a professional Washington, PA accident lawyer.

Apart from the liquid and the chemicals used with it, there is always a chance of exposure and contamination of methane and other harmful gas when the liquid penetrates the fuel beneath the ground. In case of such exposure to gas, not only the water, but also the risk of air pollution increases. Inhaling such air can give birth to many diseases that will eventually affect each and every one of the community. However, in a situation like this, when you will have to rush to the hospital and get the treatment done, it is necessary that you get the compensation to manage the expenses of your treatment. Since the liable party, i.e. the company responsible for fracking is most likely to avoid the responsibility, it is necessary that you appoint an experienced Washington, PA accident lawyer who will take care of your claim.

Most of the companies resort to this illegal practice of fracking as it does not cost much, unlike the proper legal procedures.
