Damages Claims for Injuries and Deaths in West Virginia Coal Mines

If you or a family member suffered a serious or fatal injury in a mining accident, the trial attorneys of Estep & Shaffer are ready to help with the legal, practical and emotional aspects of your situation. For a free consultation about your legal options, and the best ways to take care of your other needs in a difficult time, contact us in Kingwood.

Serving Mining Families in Preston County, Fairmont, Elkins, Grafton and Parsons

While our primary legal objective is to help make sure that you recover as much financial compensation as possible from those responsible for your losses, we also know that you and your family will also have other immediate and long-term needs that require attention: life or disability insurance applications, paperwork for survivors' benefits, Social Security disability insurance claims, or life-care planning assistance and adaptive technology to adjust to life with a disability.

We also know that most families affected by mining disasters encounter problems just getting answers to their questions about how the accident could have happened. Estep & Shaffer offers full service to our client families, and we're prepared to help you through the problems that don't necessarily relate directly to your legal claims.

Our Kingwood mining accidents attorneys help clients with personal injury or wrongful death claims related to disasters of all kinds in northern West Virginia:

  • Gas explosion
  • Heavy equipment accidents
  • Hauling accidents
  • Wall collapse
  • Roof failure
  • Blows from loose or falling objects
  • Injuries suffered in site preparation or logging accidents

One of our attorneys, Steve Shaffer, worked underground for over 23 years, and he knows all about the dangers faced by anyone in the coal mining industry. All of our lawyers know how to work with the facts that can help us establish the owner's liability for intentional exposure to hazards through proof of safety violations or prior knowledge of a particular risk.
