Coal mining deaths up in the U.S.

While advancing technology and shrinking demand means fewer and fewer people are working in coal mines, a recent report shows that coal mine deaths nearly doubled last year.

With fewer regulators on the job, often the only incentive that mine operators have to protect their employees is the knowledge that somewhere out there, a trial lawyer will stand up for a miner's rights, when management neglected the miner.

We have successfully represented a number of miners over the years who have been hurt in both surface mines and underground mines. Even though miners may have limited recourse against their employers due to various workers' compensation laws, oftentimes a third party may be legally responsible for a miner's injuries.

This can be due to a defectively-designed product, poor maintenance by a safety contractor, or negligence of a third party supplier. The best way to determine whether you have a claim is to have an experienced lawyer review your case.
