Throughout history, workers involved in the oil, gas, timber and coal industries have experienced serious and fatal accidents more frequently than in other industries.
Even so, employers in these industries continue to ignore or choose to remain ignorant of important safety requirements issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).
If a worker in one of these industries is seriously injured as the result of an OSHA or MSHA safety violation, they can collect workers’ compensation benefits and may also file a lawsuit directly against their employer for damages in excess of those paid for by workers’ compensation.
At gas well sites, workers can suffer burns or be injured by explosions or drilling rig collapses. In coal mines, workers are often injured by roof falls, explosions or equipment malfunctions. If you have been injured on the job, Manchin Injury Law Group can help you recover compensation.
In addition to handling personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits against employers, defective product makers and insurers, we help clients in other important ways as well. Whether that means coordinating medical treatment and dealing with insurance coverage issues, or issuing a payment guarantee to your landlord or mortgage holder — we will be here for you and do whatever we can to help if you have been injured on the job in the oil, gas, timber or coal industries.
