    Compensation for injured miners


    Ask any personal injury lawyer whether they have helped injured miners get compensation after an accident or industrial disease has left them suffering, and they’ll probably tell you that they have. After all, mining is a dangerous job with its fair share of casualties, and if you’re amongst the scores of injured miners seeking personal injury compensation for an accident at work, the good news is that your claim could be successful.

    Let Accident Advice Helpline come to the rescue – we have 15 years’ experience handling personal injury claims and we really know our stuff. We also come highly recommended by our patron, UK consumer champion and TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, so you know you can trust us.

    What are you claiming for?

    Perhaps you’re claiming compensation on behalf of a loved one who has died in a mining accident? Or you could be making a claim after suffering injuries yourself. Mining disasters such as collapses can leave miners seriously injured, suffering from crush injuries, head injuries and other life-changing injuries that could leave them unable to return to work or live a ‘normal’ life.

    Personal injury compensation can’t heal injuries, but it can help families to cope in the aftermath of an accident and a settlement could benefit your family financially if you have been left unable to work after a mining collapse.

    It may be that you’re suffering from an industrial disease such as mesothelioma, after exposure to asbestos, or black lung disease from inhalation of graphite, carbon and coal dust over the years. Injured miners suffering from industrial diseases may face a fairly bleak future with the prospect of illness and medical treatment ahead, but making a claim for personal injury compensation can help to lighten the burden by covering the cost of medical treatment and care and helping your family out financially.

    What settlement might you win?

    In the past, miners injured in serious collapses have been awarded substantial settlements, but we look at each claim on an individual basis, so it’s impossible to say exactly how much compensation you’ll receive, as this will depend on the extent of your injuries, any loss of earnings and a range of other factors.

    For an idea of how much you could be entitled to claim, take the 30-second test on our website right now, then give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500. It’s free to call and there’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, so the best time to act is now.
