Proudly Serving Workers in the Energy Sector

West Virginia has seen a significant increase in this industry within the past few years as more and more people flock to the state looking for work in the fields. After a large mass of natural gas was found underneath the state, a number of workers from Texas and other states have come to work on gas pipelines, wells, well pads, compressor stations, and other jobs in the natural gas industry.


If you have been injured while working for the following gas & oil companies, we can help you seek compensation:

  • Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation

  • Chesapeake Energy

  • Antero Resources

  • EQT

  • Marathon Petroleum Corporation or Marathon Oil Corporation

  • Petroleum & Resources Corporation

Unfortunately, the growth has also resulted in a significant increase in injuries and deaths, most of which have resulted from the different terrain and dangerous nature of oil and gas production and transmission. Though the oil and gas industry may be an incredibly lucrative one, the line of work certainly comes with its own distinct dangers and job hazards, including catastrophic, tragic, and fatal injuries.

We represent victims of:

  • Oil and gas explosions

  • Burn injuries

  • Gas mining accidents

  • Heavy machinery accidents

  • Defective industrial equipment

  • Pipeline accidents

  • Oil rig accidents

  • Slip and Falls

  • Blowouts

The risks associated with the energy sector are well known, but this does not excuse or pardon any acts of negligence, recklessness, or carelessness. Whether you were injured during the pre-drilling phase, during a change in machinery, or other incidents, you need to work with an attorney right away.


Though many oil and gas explosions are a result of poor training, defective industrial equipment, inadequate safety measures, negligence, and lack of protocol, the final result of these types of accidents generally is the same. Victims will suffer for years while under extensive treatment, perhaps even preventing them from earning money that could be used as payment for medical expenses.

Any accident can be difficult to deal with, especially when you are up against insurance companies and employers. If you have been injured at an oilfield or due to some sort of oil or gas explosion, you deserve to be represented to the fullest extent of the law. Our Charleston personal injury lawyers can provide you with personalized legal counsel every step of the way. Let us help you today.
