West Virginia Coal Mine Accident Lawyers | Contact Us


Tim Conaway taught coal mine safety for the Bureau of Mines before going to law school in 1972.  For 35 years he has lived and worked as a lawyer in Boone County, WV, one of the largest coal producing counties  in the country.  He understands the dangers involved in mining.  Mr. Conaway predicted dangerous times were on the way for the coal industry back in 2006, and called for additional safety laws.  Had the coal companies listened, we may have avoided the Upper Big Branch and Sago disasters.

West Virginia Mining Injuries


Boone County, WV, Raleigh County, WV, Logan County, WV, Mingo County, WV, Lincoln County, WV, and Kanawha County, WV, are annually some of the biggest producers of coal in the country. Unfortunately, the giant coal producers sometimes value production over safety.  This reckless and negligent behavior by coal companies creates hazardous mining conditions and often results in severe injuries or death.


If you are severely injured in a mining accident, or a family member is killed in a mining accident, you will need to hire a lawyer in order to recover your lost wages, future lost wages and damages for pain, suffering, annoyance, and inconvenience.


We have represented numerous individuals who have been severely injured or killed by the negligence of coal companies. Some of our clients have been working for independent contractors when they were injured while working inside the mines. Many clients have been employees of coal companies who were injured as a result of the company ignoring safety regulations.  When an employee is tragically injured in a mining accident due to the coal company ignoring safety regulations a law suit must be filed to obtain money damages other than just workers compensation.


We have significant knowledge of how coal mines operate. Our cases have involved the following: man trip collisions, roof falls, vehicle collisions, dispatcher negligence, faulty communication systems, electrical problems, continuous miner operation, negligent training, and more. Our legal experience can help you recover against the giant coal corporations.
