When working in the coal mining industry, workers are only too aware of the possible existing dangers that can ultimately cause injury and even death. One of these dangers is injury from a methane gas explosion. If you or a loved one has sustained injury from methane gas explosion related to working in a coal mine, obtaining the services of a knowledgeable attorney from our firm can be your first step toward recovering just compensation for the injuries you have sustained.
When you sustain on the job injuries due to a catastrophe such as a methane explosion you may have a right to seek compensation above and beyond what workers compensation will provide you. If the explosion was due to a failure on the part of the owners or operators of the facility to maintain safe working conditions and safe equipment, the owners and/or operators may be held liable for compensating you for your damages. The caring and proven legal professionals from our firm can assist you in determining what your rights are under the circumstances and how to proceed to bring a claim against the liable parties.
