Have you or a loved one been injured or have you lost a loved one in a coal mining accident involving a roof fall or rib roll? Do you want to take action to maximize your compensation for medical costs and other expenses? Bailey, Javins & Carter, L.C., can help. We have more than 40 years of experience getting money for victims of West Virginia coal mine accidents.
Our attorneys are familiar with the coal mining industry. We know that a roof fall or roof failure is often the result of the mine operator simply not following the roof control plan set by MSHA and the state. We know the difference between a rib roll and a rib fall and, more importantly, what causes them. When you come to us for representation in one of these types of accidents, you do not have to waste time explaining the language of coal mining to us. We already know it.
Investigation Into the Cause of the Coal Mine Collapse
When the mine roof falls or rib rolls on miners, the injuries are going to be severe. We frequently represent the families of the party who was injured or killed in the collapse. The family has the right to answers as to why this happened, and those answers will form the foundation of the case we build to get full and fair compensation.
Why was the roof not bolted properly? What happened to cause the ribs of the coal mine to buckle and collapse? We will ask all of the relevant questions to identify which party or parties were responsible. Then we will take action to see that they are held accountable.
We work on a contingent fee basis. We do not get paid unless you do.
