Residents in Airth by Falkirk, and others in nearby communities are concerned about the proposal by an energy company to extract methane from coal beds which lie 3,600 feet below the Airth countryside. Residents are concerned that methane could get into the water supply and, of course there are also the problems associated with fracking and its potential to damage the environment. Methane is non-toxic, but it can become explosive if mixed with other chemicals and as it displaces oxygen, one could die of asphyxiation if there were a leak. Methane from underground has caused disastrous mining and oil rig accidents. Methane has also been linked to global warming, so naturally there is some concern about extracting it from underground.
If methane in the water supply caused an explosion in your home, and it could be proven that it was the result of fracking, then you could sue for the energy company for damages. However, if a person died because of this, no amount of money could ever compensate close relatives for their loss. Expert solicitors in Airth by Falkirk should be able to help if this scenario occurred. However, you may need to look further afield, to find an expert solicitor to handle your potential personal injury compensation claim.
