Man's story raises awareness for coal mine accidents

Coal mining is historically one of the most prominent industries in West Virginia and other Appalachian states. Many miners come from a long line of relatives who have worked in the mines for generations. It is not unusual for industry giants to try to make sure coal mine accidents do not become public knowledge. Recently, a victim used the remainder of his life to speak out for himself and other workers who have suffered injuries or death in coal mines. 

Woman files wrongful death suit on behalf of brother

Losing a family member can be one of the most difficult situations a person must deal with. In some cases, there can be feelings of anger and regret if the deceased was the victim of a wrongful death. In similar circumstances, some West Virginia residents choose to take legal action against the party responsible for the death. 

Three suffer personal injury in explosion

Colleges and universities across the nation are often places where important research and development take place. Laboratories at these institutions allow both students and staff to conduct important work in various fields. West Virginia residents may be among the thousands of Americans who work in a laboratory, and a recent incident proves that a laboratory can be dangerous and serious personal injury can occur. 

Coal mine accidents have unforseen consequences for victims

Recently, an opinion piece about the effects of coal mining in West Virginia presented some eye-opening facts about the dangers workers face each day in the often troubled coal mine industry. Being injured in coal mine accidents can obviously affect a victim seriously and immediately, but there may be evidence to suggest that an injured miner can suffer for a lifetime in ways that may not be so apparent. At first glance, it may seem like the instances of addiction to opioids and other prescription drugs that have ravaged families across the state are unrelated, but addiction and coal mining accidents may go hand in hand. 

Hidden danger causes personal injury to students

Across the Mountaineer State, college students are settling in for a new semester on campus. Parents have done their best to warn college-age students about dangers they may face as they strike out on their own, many for the first time. Unfortunately for several students at West Virginia University, a danger no one could have prepared them for has caused serious personal injury, and now families are taking legal action.
