Coal Dust Explosions

Coal dust is created when pieces of coal are ground up in the mining or transportation process. Because of the delicate nature of coal, this occurs frequently and can become a serious hazard for people that work in this field. Spontaneous combustion as a result of coal dust in the air has caused many devastating mining accidents, and it can cause serious harm to miners and individuals working or living near the site.

Coal Dust Dangers

While there have been many steps taken to improve the safety of miners in recent years, any instances of negligence can result in a coal dust explosion. Examples of this type of error include:

  • Faulty ventilation systems
  • Defective watering systems
  • Lack of safety lamps
  • Failure to adhere to safety regulations for mining machinery

When working in a potentially dangerous field, there is no room for carelessness. Explosions may cause physical trauma and emotional distress, and often require a lengthy recovery period. While this can be trying on a person or family’s financial stability, a qualified attorney may be able to help them regain a sense of security and a measure of justice.
