Proving a Mine Safety & Health Case
Mining is regulated by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). The purpose of MSHA is to reduce the number of mine-related deaths, illness, and injuries in the United States. Not only does this agency create and enforce rules and regulations but also offers education and technical assistance.
Fines and penalties can be levied against businesses depending upon:
- Number and kind of prior violations;
- The number of employees;
- Negligence of the business;
- The seriousness of the violation; and
- The actions of the business trying to correct the violation.
Our Charleston mine safety and health attorneys are natural problem-solvers. During these stressful times, our firm relishes the opportunity to utilize the law to fight for the best possible solution.

- Equipment maintenance
