Logging: One Of The Country's Most Dangerous Jobs

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), logging is one of the most dangerous industries in the U.S. It is, however, still big business in West Virginia. If you or a family member suffered injuries while working as a logger, you need an experienced lawyer to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Speak with the legal team at the Law Office of Stephen P. New in Beckley. We have years of experience with on-the-job accidents. You can be sure that we will treat you and your family with compassion as we pursue the workers' compensation you need. We will also examine your case to determine whether you have a Mandolidis claim or an additional claim against a third party. If so, we will file a separate personal injury or wrongful death suit for financial damages that are in addition to the workers' comp benefits you receive.

Why You Need A Lawyer After A Logging Accident

There are numerous reasons loggers can be injured, including:

  • Falling limbs and trees
  • Broken or defective equipment
  • Logging truck accidents
  • Lack of safety procedures
  • Falling out of trees
  • Repetitive stress/motions

Logging accidents can result in catastrophic or fatal injuries such as amputations, broken or crushed bones, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Any of these injuries may end a logger's career.

That's why you must receive adequate financial compensation for your injuries. With our experience, we know how to calculate the full value of your past, present and future losses from the injury. When appropriate, we work with economists and other experts to determine the amount of compensation clients need to pay their medical bills and move forward.
