West Virginia Oil and Gas Explosions Attorney

The oil and gas industry is one of the most dangerous and high-risk of all occupations. Due to its highly volatile environment, injury or death may occur virtually anytime due to the risk of explosions. Although safety standards are highly regulated, the slightest deviation may result in an explosion and possible injury to anyone in the vicinity.
