Coal Mining Accidents

Coal miners face numerous risks on the job. Exposure to coal particulates and gases can cause long-term health problems such as pneumoconiosis ("black lung"). In addition, job site risks such as slope failure, underground roof collapse, explosions, and heavy machinery accidents can easily result in death.

If you are a coal worker who has been injured on the job or you have been diagnosed with pneumoconiosis, we can help. Proudly serving West Virginia coal workers, our coal mining accident attorneys have a thorough understanding of the law, and will work diligently to help you obtain fair and just financial restitution for your suffering. You may be eligible to obtain compensation for medical costs, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and in the event that you are unable to work, compensation for lost wages (including future wages).

If a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in a coal mining accident in West Virginia, our coal mining accident attorneys can assist you in seeking the compensation that you are entitled to. At The Masters Law Firm, we understand how devastating a loss of income can be to a family, and recognize that a severe injury or death in the family can cause serious emotional pain and suffering. If a loved one has been seriously injured, we can help ensure that your family receives compensation sufficient to cover a lifetime of medical costs as well as a loss of future income. In the unfortunate event that a loved one has been killed in a coal mining accident, our compassionate attorneys will work tirelessly to see that you receive compensation for funerary costs and emotional anguish through a wrongful death suit.
