Electrocution from Mining Accidents at Prep Plants and Underground/Surface Mines

Each year, hundreds of Americans die at work as a result of electrocution (death caused by electric shock), and it is the fourth leading cause of work-related traumatic death. Many of these deaths occur in the mining industry at prep plants, underground mines and surface mines.

With fatalities occurring from electrocution and oftentimes because of unsafe work practices, it is important to know your rights under the law. Many miners including those working in prep plants die each year as a result of being harmed with direct or indirect contact with live electrical equipment at underground mines, surface mines and prep plants.

Prep plant workers are especially at a high risk with every specialization on the work site included.  Workers at prep plants often use heavy equipment and are exposed to factors at prep plants that compromise their safety.  Many of the fatalities occurring at a prep plant are a result of negligence, unsafe working conditions, lack of safety training and/or defective equipment.

If your loved one has been injured or killed in a mining accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Please call the lawyers at Preston & Salango, PLLC to schedule your free consultation at 304-342-0512.
