Contact Raji Rai-Nielsen and discover what your mining injury could truly be worth.

One of the Most Dangerous Occupations in the United States

Mining accidents are an ongoing problem in Nevada and throughout the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were approximately 5,250 non-fatal mining accident injuries that resulted in more than 300,000 days lost from work in 2013. Even worse, a disturbing 41 mining-related fatalities occurred that same year. Even though numerous safety regulations are in place, mining remains one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. While severe injuries and fatalities that result from mining accidents are life changing, injured victims and their families are able to file a claim to receive some relief for things like pain and suffering, lost past and future wages, medical expenses, and funeral costs when applicable.

Who is Ultimately Responsible for Mining Accidents in Nevada?

Mining accidents can occur due to a wide variety of reasons and in some cases, more than one factor is involved. While keeping a mine and its equipment up to code is the responsibility of the employer, in some instances defective, malfunctioning or dangerous products that involve third parties can result in serious injuries as well. Our firm is dedicated to performing a thorough investigation to determine all of the causes related to the mining accident so we can help you obtain compensation from all parties responsible.

Immediate and Progressive Injuries

While immediate injuries that are caused by things like malfunctioning equipment, collapsed ceilings and walls, and fires and explosions are typically easier to identify, some mining-related injuries may not present symptoms for months, or even years after exposure. Sadly, these progressive injuries often cause irreparable damage to the victim. Our firm represents clients who have suffered both immediate injuries as well as progressive injuries including burns, hearing or vision loss, fractured bones, lost limbs, black lung, chronic lung disease, asthma and allergies, and death.
