Holding Mine Owners Liable For Injuries To Miners

Methane explosions, falls, burns, electrocution, stockpile and shield collapses, coal truck accidents, and accidents caused by improperly maintained equipment and inadequate training cause hundreds of injuries every year. Due to the dangerous nature of coal mining, accidents and the injuries that result are often serious, life-threatening and fatal.

Coal mine owners and operators have a duty to provide safe workplace environments. When employers fail to live up to this duty, fail to obey safety regulations or fail to properly maintain equipment, coal miners get injured.

At Cyrus, Adkins & Walker, Attorneys at Law , we hold coal miner owners and operators liable for the injuries caused by their actions.
