Dan Bieger knows the injuries that commonly result when machinery such as continuous miners and shuttle cars malfunctions. He knows that workers face the constant threat of falling rocks and debris. He has represented clients with all types of mining-related injuries, including:

  • •  Brain damage
  • •  Head injuries
  • •  Neck injuries
  • •  Back injuries
  • •  Severe trauma to limbs (including limbs that must be amputated)

When it comes to workers’ compensation claims for coal miners, Dan Bieger pursues every type of available compensation. Workers are commonly compensated for lost wages and medical benefits.

In a case where a workers’ compensation claim is not sufficient to cover the medical expenses of a qualified injured miner, we help the miner navigate the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) system to get additional benefits.

If there is suspicion that an accident was caused by faulty equipment, we can also pursue third-party claims against the manufacturer. In these cases, we can also seek compensation for lost earning capacity for workers who are unable to resume their pre-injury work.
