The mining industry has made big advances in terms of workplace safety over the last decade with rates of fatal accidents and serious injuries declining.
The risks to which mining workers are exposed – and for which compensation is often payable – are explosions, machinery mishaps, handling of heavy or awkward materials, falls, and being hit by moving objects.
Limb injuries, respiratory diseases, disc injuries, crush injuries and shoulder injuries are commonly the subject of successful injury compensation claims made on behalf of mine workers.
The role of an accident lawyer confronted with a mining accident is to thoroughly examine all the contributing factors and to expose what failures or lapses were responsible and what compensation is payable as a result.
Your rights in relation to a mining accident include the right to get the best outcome for you and your family by choosing a lawyer with deep knowledge of the mining industry and of the mishaps that can occur on mine sites.
You are also entitled to select legal representation from an accident injury law firm with decades of experience in mining accident compensation.
With the aid of expert safety engineers that we recruit, we meticulously examine every aspect leading up to the accident occurrence and secure detailed witness accounts to confirm those events.
