Morgantown Well-Site Injury Lawyers

Supporting Victims of Oil and Gas Safety Incidents

Natural gas well sites are some of the most dangerous places to work in the country. In fact, seven times as many workers are killed in the oil and gas extraction field than in any other occupation.

At the same time, jobs related to natural gas pipeline construction increased 400% from 2017 to 2018 in West Virginia. It is an important industry, but unfortunately, injuries on the job are likely to be an ongoing concern for natural gas well workers.
