Compensation For Mining Accident Injuries And Wrongful Death

Copper, lead, zinc, iron and other metals are critical to the infrastructure of our country. Everything from the manufacture of computer systems and appliances to cars and bridges is dependent upon a continual supply of metals.

If you or a family member was injured on a mining job anywhere in West Virginia, the attorneys at Warner Law Offices are here to help. Devoting significant investigative and forensic resources to the development and presentation of each case, our goal is to obtain justice and maximum compensation for our clients.

  • Powered haulage
  • Waste rock disposal
  • Milling and leaching
  • Slag disposal
  • Heavy machinery

According to data from the Mine Safety and Health Administration and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, most fatal mining accidents on the surface are caused by powered haulage (including rail cars, manlifts, trucks, conveyers and front-end loaders) and machinery (including electric tools, drills and power shovels). The majority of fatalities underground occur due to falling ground.
