Truck Accidents and Fracking - Discover the Link From a Reliable Source

Contact O'Malley & Langan, a fracking accident attorney in Pennsylvania you can trust

What does hydraulic fracking have to do with truck accidents? More than you might realize. Oil and gas drilling workers have been involved in a high number of trucking accidents for many years. Nearly one-third of fatalities involving oil and gas workers involve fatal traffic accidents.

But the problem is getting even worse with fracking, or "hydraulic fracturing," the controversial form of drilling that's increasingly popular in Northeastern Pennsylvania, especially in the Marcellus Shale formation. Hydraulic fracking drill rigs need 1 million to 8 million gallons of water per well to operate. And in most cases, these heavy trucks deliver that water to the drilling site.

"Why should I hire O'Malley & Langan law firm to handle my truck accident?"

You might think you don't need a lawyer. If you were injured in an accident caused by a truck driver on his way to or from a fracking drill rig, you might think your case is straightforward. The caused your accident, therefore the insurance company will compensate you, right?

Don't be so sure. Insurance companies and oil and gas companies are represented by aggressive lawyers whose primary focus is to find a reason to deny your claim. That means they often do everything within their means to pay accident victims as little as possible.
