King Coal…..coal has been the cornerstone of the economy of central Appalachia for over a century. Each and every one of us in eastern Kentucky, southern West Virginia and western Virginia know someone in our families who worked to make a living by mining coal underground. But at what cost?

Miners over the years have relied on coal dust masks and respirators to protect them from the harmful dust that is created during the mining process. Recent litigation against the manufacturers of these masks and respirators has revealed that these same masks the miners were told would protect them were defective and have been found to have contributed to dust related health issues such as black lung disease.

Alarming studies show that 1 in 5 underground coal miners who have worked underground in the coal mines of central Appalachia over the past 25 years will develop black lung or some dust related lung disease. National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health.

If you were a coal miner who was provided a defective dust mask/respirator and have developed black lung or some other dust-related disease, you may be eligible for compensation. Call Shane Hall Attorney at Law, PLLC right now for your free consultation. Put us to work for you!
