Fracking

What is fracking?

Nearly 90% of the oil and gas wells in our nation are the result of fracking. The process of fracking involves extracting petroleum, coal seam gas, or natural gas from the earth by injecting pressurized fluids or chemicals. Oil companies and natural gas companies have tried to promote fracking as a solution to the nation's bad economy, but the majority of local residents and environmentalists in our country oppose fracking.

Why is there so much opposition to fracking? Because fracking lowers the value of the surrounding property by polluting the air and the water supplies. By releasing a toxic cocktail of chemicals deep into the ground to fracture the rock, fracking also causes significant toxic air emissions, well water and ground water contamination. Residents who live nearby often complain about fowl smells and physical symptoms that they experience because of the fracking process.

Symptoms Caused by Fracking

The slew of toxic chemicals that are released through fracking can set the stage for serious health problems. In addition to allergic reactions and headaches, people can also experience the following symptoms:

  • Gastrointestinal effects
  • Body aches
  • Rashes throughout the body
  • Open sores in the nose and ears
  • Chronic nose bleeding
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Irregular or rapid heartbeat
  • Tremors
  • Permanent Scarring
  • Wheezing, coughing, grunting
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Depression
  • Abdominal pain
  • Cancer

These health issues are serious and must be addressed from the outset. If you have experienced any of these symptoms, you must take action to protect your health and your rights. Here at DominaLaw Group, we know how to bring a lawsuit against the national gas and oil companies in order to recover your losses for medical treatment and the pain and suffering you have endured. Our team of environmental lawyers is highly knowledgeable in this area of law and we can help you prove that there is a direct correlation between your health problems and fracking.

In order to silence the uproar and intense lobbying that has surrounding fracking, the gas industry commissioned a number of economic studies to investigate job gains from fracking. One of these studies, paid for by the America's Natural Gas Alliance, projected that fracking will create 1.1 million jobs in the United States by 2020. Upon closer study, however, it is clear that fracking actually leads to widespread job losses in other sectors of the economy. Additionally, the jobs that are created by fracking typically go to workers who are from out-of-state.

The local population is left to bear the costs of polluted drinking water, smog, deteriorating roads from heavy truck traffic, a marred landscape with pipelines and holding pools. Furthermore, the process of fracking also leaks chemicals into surrounding pastures and has led to the illness or death of livestock. If you have been affected by fracking in any of these ways, you can find the caring help and legal representation you need when you contact DominaLaw Group.
