Know your rights after coal mine accidents

Working in the mining industry comes with a certain amount of known hazards, including a certain risk for coal mine accidents. Mine safety is a critical component of working in this field, and when coal mine accidents do occur, the injured party does have certain rights. The Mine Act, which grants industry employees specific rights, applies to any individual who works in the mining industry. 

Options available to victims of motor vehicle accidents

Motor vehicle accidents have the potential to cause irreparable damage, either through the death of a loved one or significant injury. It is unfair that an accident victim in West Virginia should suffer because of the actions of a motorist. Fortunately, the law provides the opportunity for victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents to seek financial compensation.

Are you eligible for personal injury compensation?

If you have been injured because of the negligent or reckless behavior of another individual, it is possible that you have grounds for a personal injury claim.

Compensation may be granted to cover medical bills, rehabilitation costs and even lost wages. 

The role of speed in motor vehicle accidents

Motor vehicle accidents can be caused by many factors that are beyond the control of the West Virginia driver, ranging from a blown tire to unsafe road conditions. However, when the negligent, reckless or dangerous actions of a driver cause an accident, these are completely preventable causes and grounds for a potential lawsuit. In many serious motor vehicle accidents, it is learned that speed played a direct role in the crash.
