Nevada Mining Accident Lawyer

En Español

Mining is one of the country's most dangerous occupations. Accidents are common, even though there are numerous safety regulations. In fact, negligence of these regulations is a common cause of accidents. If you have been injured in a mining accident, especially if you know or suspect negligence on the part of your employer, you need legal representation.

The law can help people who have been injured, but it is important to act quickly. There is a time limit, or statute of limitations, on these cases. After the statute of limitations has passed, you cannot file suit. At , our mining accident lawyers have successfully represented many clients involved in such cases. Please call 877.324.6443 for a free consultation.

Mining Accidents

A mining accident may be the result of a failure to keep a mine and its equipment up to code. In most cases, this is the responsibility of the mining company. For the worker, this results in disastrous consequences. Common causes of injury include:

  • Conveyor belt malfunction
  • Explosions
  • Fires
  • Poisonings
  • Ceiling and wall collapse

Immediate Mining Injury

Some mining injuries are immediate and are often the result of equipment and structural failures. These injuries include:

  • Reduced sight or blindness
  • Ringing ears and deafness
  • Lost limb
  • Severe cuts
  • Broken bones
  • Death

Progressive Mining Injury

Progressive mining injuries are toxic injuries that develop mainly over time. Their causes vary from case to case, but generally involve the air the miners breathe. Their activities excite coal dust and other small particles that float through the air and cling to everything. When these particles get into the lungs, they may cause irreparable damage. Each of the following is a common progressive mining injury.

  • Black lung
  • Chronic lung disease
  • Allergies and asthma
