When an accident happens at work, victims often assume that workers’ compensation will cover all of their accident-related needs. While a claim can help a West Virginia victim and family recover financial losses, it is wise to seek legal help when facing the aftermath of coal mine accidents. With assistance, a victim and family has a greater chance of successfully recovering rightful recompense.
While there are certain inherent risks to working in the coal mine industry, many workplace accidents may be preventable. Sadly, poor training, third-party negligence or lack of safety measures are often to blame for serious or fatal coal mine accidents. Due to the nature of coal mine accidents, injuries are frequently serious, including head trauma, brain damage or amputations.
