Workers’ Compensation for Coal Mining
Coal mining is an extremely dangerous job that puts workers at risk of respiratory damage, hearing issues, and injury from heavy machinery. The most common injuries coal miners suffer are non-fatal or industry-related illnesses. If you have been injured at work in a coal mine and can no longer perform the duties your job requires, know that you are entitled to compensation.
If you’re injured as a coal miner, your employer is obligated to pay for your medical care, lost wages, and other out-of-pocket expenses. Regardless of whether your employer’s insurance carrier has denied your claim, contact us after your coal mining injury!
