Holding Third Parties Accountable for Causing Coal Mining Accidents

Our firm’s Madison and St. Clair County, Illinois, coal mining accident lawyers offer a client-driven approach focused on identifying the cause of catastrophic and fatal work-related accidents. Our legal team consults coal mining experts to help us evaluate accident scenes in determining any liability factors, including:

  • Faulty equipment — Including defective drills, blasting equipment and excavating equipment leading to serious injuries and fatalities
  • Operator error — Including overworked or undertrained drill operators, truck drivers, blasting personnel and coal truck drivers
  • Toxic exposure — Including silica dust exposure known to cause silicosis or black lung cancer when silica dust is inhaled from surface drilling and blasting

We work with industry leading experts to help us establish liability. Part of our focus includes evaluating state and federal records to understand if the mining operation has had a history of violating safety requirements. We also conduct an investigation to determine if the manufacturer can be held accountable. Our legal team will review every angle possible in pursuit of securing your legal rights. If a third party was negligent, we will pursue a personal injury claim to help you and your family obtain maximum compensation.
