Coal Mining Accidents

As important as the coal mining industry is to West Virginia, there is nothing more important than the safety and well-being of our coal miners. Mining accidents are frequently responsible for the serious injury or death of mine workers. If you or a loved one has been injured in a coal mining accident, contact an experienced lawyer who can protect your rights.

While workers' compensation is typically the first option to seek relief for your injuries, there may be personal injury compensation that can be explored separately. At the Beckley, West Virginia based Law Office of Stephen New, we have helped clients throughout southern West Virginia to recover the compensation they deserve for injuries suffered in a wide variety of surface and underground mining accidents.

Strong Representation on Your Behalf

Our founding attorney, Stephen New, comes from a coal mining family. His father was a coal miner, and Attorney New worked in the mines during the summers while he was going to school. He has a complete understanding of the dangers and potential for injury that miners face every day. He is committed to helping you obtain the maximum compensation available for your injuries.

We help clients with all types of mining injuries, including:

  • Defective equipment
  • Crush injuries
  • Injuries suffered due to inadequate training
  • Negligent equipment operation
  • Industrial diseases
  • Methane gas explosions
  • Mine collapse
  • Deliberate intent injuries
