Gas Drilling Rig Worker Killed On Job

Posted By Personal Injury Attorney || 6-Sep-2010

A gas drilling rig worker was killed last month when he fell from a natural gas drilling rig, owned by Nomac Drilling Inc. of Towanda Township, PA, according to reports.

The accident occurred while the worker was attempting to dislodge part of a platform as the drilling unit was being moved to another drilling hole site on the drilling pad. The handrail gave way and he fell approximately 20 feet. The victim suffered a severe head injury, reports say.

The name of the employee was withheld until the family was notified. A full investigation is underway, according to reports

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
