The Human Cost Of Fracking
Frac sand mining (also known as fracking or hydrofracking) has made it possible to access the estimated 500 trillion cubic feet of natural gas contained in the Marcellus Shale formation. While fracking has created jobs and helped the economy of West Virginia, it comes at a hidden cost.
This process requires enormous amounts of water, and this water arrives at gas well sites via large tanker trucks. Additional trucks are required to carry away contaminated water and byproducts of the drilling process. With thousands of these large vehicles on the road, serious accidents involving water trucks and other drilling-related vehicles are an all-too-common occurrence.
You Need An Attorney To Help You Stand Up To The Gas Drilling Companies And Their Insurance Carriers
If you have been injured in one of these accidents, often the drilling companies and their insurers are quick to deny liability. They may even go as far as blaming you for what happened. These huge companies will put their massive resources to work right away and will do everything they can to minimize the amount of compensation they must pay.
During this difficult time, you need someone to stand up to these companies and fight for your interests. At Farmer, Cline & Campbell, PLLC, we use aggressive advocacy and proven trial strategies to help you seek all the compensation you need to pay for your recovery and hold negligent parties accountable for the harm they have caused. When insurance counsel and corporate lawyers see our water truck accident attorneys on the other side of a case, they know that our clients must be taken seriously and that we will work tirelessly to ensure that our clients are treated fairly.
