Conveyor Belt Accident Litigation
If you work an assembly job, for a distribution company, in a warehouse or in a coal mine, you are probably exposed to a conveyor belt on your job. While a valuable tool, a conveyor belt can also be a source of serious injuries. When conveyor belt accidents happen, they can result in loss of limbs, lacerations and even fatalities.
Warner Law Offices has the resources to fully investigate workplace accidents involving conveyor belts and assembly lines. We hold negligent companies accountable for safety violations that contribute to worker injuries. Our goal is to obtain fair compensation for injured workers.
Conveyor Belt Accidents Can Be Prevented
Whatever industry you work in ― in West Virginia, it is very likely you work in the coal industry ― our attorneys can provide the legal help you need after an injury or death of a family member. We are knowledgeable about the safety standards coal mine companies, equipment manufacturers and contractors should be following. We can identify when safety measures have been overlooked or ignored.
For example, workers should not conduct repair or maintenance on a conveyor belt unless the power is off. Additionally, coal mine operators should ensure that all workers are adequately trained in conveyor belt safety.
