WV Coal Mine and Industrial Accident Lawyers
Coal mine and industrial accidents are an unfortunate reality of working in a relatively hazardous and difficult physical work environment using heavy industrial equipment – we have handled numerous coal mine accident cases involving scoops, shuttle cars, roof bolting machines, long wall continuous miners, and all types of other slips, trips, falls, rock falls, and other mining-related injuries. Mining is a highly regulated industry, but it is also a very profit-driven industry. As a result, unfortunately sometimes bosses and foremen are driven either by profit or expectations from their supervisors to meet production (and profit) quotas, which can lead to bad decisions, violations of or disregard for applicable safety rules and regulations, which can lead to injury. Similarly, we have also handled cases involving major catastrophic industrial accidents, including gas explosions (e.g. January 2007 Ghent WV gas explosion which leveled a convenience store, injuring and killing multiple people), hydraulic car lifts, industrial chemicals and exposure, and construction accidents. If you were injured or suffered a loved one being killed in a mining accident in West Virginia, please call us today for a free consultation on your case.
Accidents involving bikers, cyclists & Runners
As an avid runner and cyclist, attorney William Adams also understands the hazards of sharing the road with motor vehicles faced by bikers, cyclists and runners. Unfortunately having to share the road with motor vehicles, particularly in this day and age where people are constantly distracted – on the phone, texting, or otherwise – too often results in injuries, to athletes and others exercising their rights to share the roads.
