Underground roof falls continue to be a leading cause of coal mining deaths in the United States. Mine roof falls and rib rolls are often catastrophic, even when these incidents occur in only a small portion of the mine. If you have suffered an injury or lost a loved one in a mine collapse accident, there is a possibility that the mining company may not award you the full amount of your entitled compensation – or deny your damages entirely.
