Coal Mining Accidents And Injuries
Coal mines — and those who work in them — are major contributors to our state’s economy. Coal mining, however, comes with serious risks. Although employers are responsible for ensuring that safety equipment and procedures are up to par, many fall short, leaving workers in serious danger of serious injury or worse.
At McQueen Davis PLLC, we understand the challenges that coal miners face every day at work, which is why we have devoted part of our practice to protecting these individuals and their families. From our office in Huntington, our attorneys serve injured workers and their families throughout West Virginia who have been injured in serious accidents, including:
- Equipment accidents, including those involving torches, bulldozers and drilling equipment
- Safety equipment failure
- Harmful exposure to methane and coal dust
