What Can Our Attorneys Do For You?

When you or someone you love experiences a life-changing fracking injury, navigating the legal process adds to your stress and slows down your recovery. Working with an experienced fracking attorney can lift that burden from your shoulders. 

The Steps We'll Take

Our team of attorneys at Warner Law Offices will walk you through every stage of your claim, including: 

  • Collecting evidence, such as witness statements, photographs, and police reports
  • Gathering your medical records 
  • Consulting with additional medical professionals 
  • Calculating your damages and potential compensation 
  • Negotiating settlements with insurance companies
  • Completing and submitting legal paperwork 
  • When settling isn’t possible, presenting your case at trial 

We’re a full-service personal injury law firm that takes fighting on behalf of our clients extremely seriously. Our client testimonials reflect our dedication and commitment. From your first consultation to the moment we reach a settlement or verdict, we’ll answer your questions, explain our next steps, and support you through this difficult time. 

The Compensation You Deserve

When your physical health and emotional well-being suffer because of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation. Fracking injury claims might result in both economic and non-economic damages, such as: 

  • Lost wages 
  • Medical bills
  • Property damage 
  • Pain and suffering 

A skilled fracking lawyer will carefully review the extent of your injuries and financial losses to determine how much compensation you should receive. At Warner Law Offices, we’ve won millions in compensation for our clients, helping them get back on their feet and deal with mounting medical bills. We’ll consider your current circumstances and the long-lasting effects of your injuries when calculating your full damages. 

Types of Fracking Claims We Take

At Warner Law Offices, we often work with former or current fracking workers who suffered injuries at their job sites. Falls, explosions, and heavy equipment accidents can cause serious harm, including: 

  • Burns 
  • Back injuries 
  • Bone fractures
  • Eye injuries 
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Workers who experience these or other injuries during on-the-job fracking accidents typically file workers’ compensation claims. However, if a third party outside of your employer, such as a contractor, was involved in the incident, you may also have the option to file a personal injury claim. 

Fracking claims aren’t limited to workers. People who live close to fracking sites can also experience injuries and illnesses due to chemical spills, explosions, or improper safety practices. These victims can also file a personal injury claim and pursue damages.

Our Lawyers Also Represent Victims of Other Natural Gas Accidents

We represent not only clients injured during fracking accidents but also other accident victims working in our state’s oil and gas industry. West Virginia has tens of thousands of natural gas wells and was the fourth-highest natural gas producer in the country in 2022. As a result, a wide range of natural gas accidents occur each year across the state. 


Workers in the natural gas industry transport materials and equipment using large tankers and commercial trucks. A 2023 report revealed that vehicle incidents such as collisions were the most common cause of fatalities for oil and gas workers. 

A truck accident can also seriously harm motorists and pedestrians. Because of the disproportionate size and weight of these trucks and tankers, not to mention the hazardous substances they carry, a collision can have catastrophic consequences. 

Explosions and Fires

Constructing and properly maintaining pipelines is a time-consuming and expensive task. Even companies that take safety and maintenance seriously could miss signs that a pipeline requires updates or repairs. 

When damaged or neglected pipelines fail, they can cause fires and explosions that are dangerous to workers and people throughout the surrounding communities. Each year, pipeline incidents cause dozens of fatalities and injuries in the United States, with more than 600 recorded incidents in 2023 alone. 


Hydraulic fracking and other types of natural gas extraction involve many hazardous chemical compounds. If released into the air or water, they can cause immediate and long-term damage to people’s health. A recent study found that living near a fracking site increased the risk of premature death, particularly for elderly people. This is primarily due to contaminants in the environment. 

In addition to the dangers of chemical exposure, natural gas workers also face risks from inhaling substances such as silica sand. Exposure often occurs when workers don’t have proper safety equipment or training. Breathing in silica can cause lung disease

Workplace Accidents

Faulty machinery, malfunctioning equipment, and electrical failures are a few of the hazards natural gas workers face while on the job. Gas refineries and other industry organizations must follow strict safety guidelines. When they fail to do so, it puts workers at significant and unnecessary risk. 

The legal system offers a way to hold these companies responsible for failing to meet safety standards. If you believe your accident resulted from your employer’s negligence, a work injury attorney can help you determine whether you have enough evidence to file a claim.
