Personal injury accident may lead to traumatic brain injury

A traumatic brain injury can unfortunately take a toll on a person's life, not only physically but also emotionally. However, it is possible for people who have suffered this type of personal injury to re-enter today's workforce in West Virginia and elsewhere. Here are a couple of tips to help job seekers with traumatic brain injury.

Coal mine accidents: Machine-related incident proves fatal

Individuals who operate in the mining industry may encounter a variety of hazards nearly every day. Incidents that occur near mines can have devastating results and fatal coal mine accidents have a way of leaving an entire community in mourning. A 41-year-old man from West Virginia has died following an incident involving a mining machine that took place on the surface of a mine in a neighboring state.

Coal mine accidents and injuries occur despite zero harm goal

Mining will likely always be a high-risk industry regardless of the safety and health officials' efforts to limit injury risks. Stricter protocols and legislation, along with improved equipment safety, have brought about a drop in the fatality rate in the mining industry. However, coal mine accidents continue to cause injuries to workers in West Virginia. One of the most significant hazards in mining that continues to affect coal miners despite legally enforced measures is dust.

Motor vehicle accidents: 2 injured in crash as traffic slows

Those who fail to adjust speed to match the change in conditions run the risk of creating a dangerous situation. Motor vehicle accidents resulting from failure to react to traffic congestion can have disastrous ramifications, and a recent incident involving a similar scenario in West Virginia has left two individuals with injuries.
