Coal Mine Collapse Injury Claims
As we all know, the coal mining industry has been one of West Virginia's most vibrant and important parts of our economy for over one hundred years. The coal mine has long been the centerpiece of many of our communities, providing good-paying jobs and playing an important role in the economy and growth of our country. The families who work at and live near the coal mines have always been a tight-knit group, taking great pride in their work and their towns. When there is a coal mine accident, it always effects everyone in the community, and the reasons for coal mine collapse accidents can be numerous. The results are often deadly, and families and the entire community suffers when tragedy takes place.
Protecting Your Right to Full Compensation
Coal stockpile collapse, roof collapse, long wall shield collapse, methane explosion, runaway mine car, defective tools and equipment, lack of safety equipment, improper mine equipment usage and silica dust are all factors which commonly lead coal mine collapse incidents. The danger inherent in coal mining puts the primary responsibility for the safety of our loved ones who work in the mines on the companies and owners who mine the coal at these facilities. When injuries or deaths occur, these companies must be held liable for the damages suffered by workers and their families.
