Explosions & Fire Injuries

Retain a WV Coal Mining Accident Lawyer

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), since 1900 an average of 1,040 U.S. miners a year have suffered wrongful deaths from coal mining accidents, including fires and explosions. NFPA states that 10-15 percent of all unintentional miner deaths "can be attributed directly to fires and explosions." Many of these injuries or fatalities could have been avoided had proper detection and suppression systems been in place and used. Failure to comply with existing laws has led to disastrous consequences in what is already a dangerous occupation.

As lifetime residents of West Virginia, the firm's attorneys know the inherent dangers to miners. While some workers have been assisted by improvements in technology and safety measures, there are companies and individuals who are still non-compliant with safety standards, resulting in Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) violations. It is the miners who have to pay the price when defective equipment, failures to comply and other violations result in burn or crush injuries and, in the worst cases, wrongful deaths.
