GAS DRILLING, GAS TRUCK AND EXPLOSION ACCIDENT LAWYERS–DLP–Drilling Rigs, Waste Ponds and Pipelines In Your Backyard?

Date: June 7, 2012

Act 34, the new state law that imposed an impact fee on gas drilling rigs in Pennsylvania, also contains provisions preempting traditional local zoning laws and permitting the construction of natural gas drilling rigs and wells,  waste ponds, pipelines and other gas drilling related items in residential areas provided buffer zones are constructed.  The zoning rules were challenged by seven (7) municipalities in Commonwealth Court.  Yesterday a seven (7) member panel of judges heard argument on the new law which has been suspended and held in limbo for the past couple of months.  A decision by the Court should be made as to the validity of the new zoning rules in the near future.

The 13 Trial lawyers at DLP have represented seriously injured accident victims in courtrooms and jury trial throughout NEPA, Central and elsewhere in Pennsylvania for over  35  years.  DLP has developed significant experience in handling Gas Drilling Rig Accidents. This area of practice compliments the many types of cases handled by DLP for years including Truck and Car accidents, Product Liability Cases,  Medical Negligence Cases,  Quarry Accidents, and other catastrophic accident cases.
