Roof Collapse Injuries in Coal Mines
Call a Coal Mining Accident Lawyer in WV
The Fitzsimmons Law Firm has been fighting for the rights of coal miners for more than 30 years. As native West Virginians, the attorneys at the firm are very familiar with the risks involved with coal mining and are genuinely concerned with seeing to it that those who have suffered in a coal mining accident are aggressively represented by a coal mining accident attorney.
A great danger to any coal miner is a roof collapse. This can occur for any number of reasons and when it happens, different types of injuries can result. This year two miners lost their lives during a roof collapse and others sustained mild to serious injuries. The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) have strict guidelines for the safety of miners and when these are ignored, a company can be found negligent of its responsibilities. Safety and MSHA violations need to be thoroughly investigated and forceful action taken based on the results.
