West Virginia Coal Mine Injury and Death Attorneys

West Virginia Coal Miners are some of our nation’s most demanding working professionals. Our West Virginia miners have had a long-standing tradition of persevering in dangerous and exhausting conditions. Unfortunately, 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, sudden blasts, misfires, 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 for industry standards and policies, or tolerate employees whose judgment may be impaired by drugs or alcohol which leads to mine accident cases.

Why Should You Hire a West Virginia Coal Mine Injury Attorney?

Jeff Robinette has been involved in the litigation of complex coal mine injury and death cases, including the Sago Coal Mine Disaster. 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. But unfortunately, 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 compensating 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 essential to act quickly to protect your claim. Time limits must be observed, and if you wait too long, you may never be able to obtain the compensation you need and deserve.

Our Case Results

Sago Mine Coal Mine Explosion

In 2006, the West Virginia coalfields were devastated by the largest coal mine explosion that had occurred in decades, and our law firm successfully represented the family of one of the deceased coal miners, by obtaining a substantial settlement for our client’s family.

Power Plant Wrongful Death

A young husband and father was performing his duties as ordered, and having been put in harms’ way, was backed over by a truck and crushed. Jeff successfully represented this man’s widow and small child and obtained a substantial settlement which allowed this family to begin to put back together their broken lives.

Carbon Monoxide Death

A newly-married couple moved into a rental property late one evening, switched on the thermostat in their new apartment, and was overcome within hours by carbon monoxide from a faulty furnace pipe. One of the parties died, and several others in the same building were taken to the hospital to be treated for extreme toxic exposure. Mr. Robinette was able to obtain for two of the families a substantial settlement that far exceeded their expectations.
