In one way or another, the mining industry touches almost everyone in West Virginia. Coal mining is an essential part of our culture, but it is also one of the most dangerous occupations in the country.
As Charleston attorneys, we have the experience and expertise to represent you after a mining accident. We have more than 60 years of combined experience with mining accidents and other types of personal injury cases.
Mining Injuries And Causes
Mining, a notoriously dangerous job, brings with it the risk of many types of injuries, including:
- Coal dust damage
- Methane gas poisoning
- Broken bones
These injuries have many common causes in the mining industry, like:
- Gas explosions
- Faulty machinery
- Shaft accidents like roof falls, dam failures and flooding
Most mining accidents result in serious or catastrophic injuries, sometime resulting in the wrongful death of the miner. If you have suffered injuries working in a mine, or if a loved one has died in this type of accident, contact us online. We have experience with this type of situation, and we will handle your case with discretion and care.
A Specialized Case
Mining accident cases are among the most complicated types of litigation, requiring the plaintiff's attorney to have detailed knowledge of OSHA standards, MSHA standards and state and federal safety regulations.
Our law firm brings experience in this area of law, so you can rest easy knowing your case is in good hands.
