Coal Mining Accidents in WV
West Virginia Personal Injury Lawyers
West Virginia has a rich history of coal mining, and we are proud of those
who have put their lives at risk to fuel the state's economy. When
miners are injured in
workplace accidents, it is vital that they receive full and generous compensation for their
medical expenses, lost wages that their family depends on, and for the
pain and suffering caused by the injury.
Coal miners are exposed to serious dangers every day. Not only are they
around heavy equipment and machinery, but the working environment itself
can bring threat of explosion or collapse. If your family has lost a loved
one due to a fire or a methane explosion, you may be able to file a
wrongful death claim or take part in a
class action lawsuit. You can also seek damages for burns or other types of injuries
resulting from these accidents. Coal miners can also suffer from chemical
exposure or silica lung due to breathing in dust while working in the mine.
Regardless of the circumstances, all workers deserve a just outcome and
fair compensation for their suffering.
Handling All Types of Mine Accidents
The coal mining industry is one of the most dangerous, marked by devastating
accidents for the past century. While there are inherent risks and hazards
in these mines, workers are still owed a level of protection. When employers
fail to provide this, it can lead to unnecessary injuries and death. Even
nearby residents and landowners who are dealing with repercussions of
pollution due to mines are protected under certain laws.
