The law firm of Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard, P.L.L.C., has been helping people like you get back on their feet after coal mining injuries for more than 30 years.

Collect Monetary Damages Over and Above Workers' Compensation Awards

Everyone knows about workers' compensation. Under workers' comp, regardless of fault, employers have to compensate injured workers for their injuries. Most injured coal mine workers rely on this as compensation for their injuries.

However, according to West Virginia's Deliberate Intent law, if the actions of the employer were egregious and deliberately exposed you to unsafe conditions that led to your injuries, we could collect damage awards over and above the workers' compensation awards.
