Morgantown West Virginia Coal Mine Injury and Death Attorneys
West Virginia Coal Miners are some of the hardest working professionals in our nation. Our West Virginia miners have had a long-standing tradition of persevering in dangerous and exhausting conditions. Coal mining companies are often guilty of safety violations and disregarding Safety and Health Administration laws.
Despite strong MSHA regulations, coal mining continues to be one of the most dangerous occupations in the world. Every year while miners are working hard to support their families and power our nation, coal miners are injured or killed because coal mine owners and operators continue to circumvent or violate safety regulations that are in place to protect our West Virginia coal miners whether they work underground or on the surface. In some cases, this negligence rises to the level of deliberate intent that necessitates a punitive damage claim.
Our brave coal miners in West Virginia face numerous hazards from faulty equipment, methane, coal dust explosions, blasting related accidents such as fly-rocks, premature blasts, misfires, and mine collapse, unsafe installation, electrical injuries, defective equipment, shuttle car defects, roof jack falls, roof pin failure, pillar collapse, continuous mining flooding, slips and falls, toxic exposure, lack of ventilation, and coal mine explosions.
West Virginia Coal Miners face and are unnecessarily exposed to increased hazards when employers and supervisors disregard and fail to follow safety regulations, use defective equipment, fail to adequately train personnel, demonstrate a reckless disregard of industry standards and policies, or tolerate employees whose judgment may be impaired by drugs or alcohol which leads to mine accident cases.

Without a doubt, Mr. Robinette has a track record of success in helping clients who have suffered brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and severe burn injuries while on the job.
Most West Virginians are familiar with Worker’s Compensation Insurance. The fact is, Workers Compensation benefits often only cover a portion of the devastating cost of a workplace injury or work-related death of the injured coal mine worker.
Many workers and their families are unaware that West Virginia has a second avenue for compensation for injured employees. West Virginia coal miners can also pursue additional compensation through a lawsuit from the coal mine company, equipment manufacturer, property owner, or subcontractor if it can be proved that the miner was intentionally placed in harm’s way which resulted in serious injuries or untimely death (deliberate intent).
If you have been injured or your loved one has died due to negligence or a willful violation of safety regulations in the coal mine, it is important to act quickly to protect your claim. There are time limits that must be observed, and if you wait too long you may never be able to obtain the compensation you need and deserve.
