Mining Accident

Working in mines is one of the most vulnerable of the professions as there are so many chances of getting hurt or encountering various kinds of mining accidents. It is so because the mining industry is a very dangerous field for all the workers who are employed in it as a dangerous mining accident can take place anytime. There are many times when the accidents may also prove to be fatal or may render the victim  as disabled for life. So, it is very necessary that all the proper precautions and measures are always taken by the employers to provide workers with very safe and protected operating procedures in order to prevent any of these mishaps.

Most commonly, a mining accident leads to the following mining injuries:

  • Lung diseases
  • Electric shocks
  • Electrical equipment caused burns
  • Fatal accidents from injuries
  • Death from respiratory diseases

When any of the mining workers suffers from an accident at the work site then he is liable to seek a compensation amount provided it is not his fault that the mishap occurred. Compensation is crucial to suffice for the injuries that the mining worker has undergone as there a lot of expenses that he has to take care of. He has to pay for the strenuous medical bills, the hospital trips and all the costly treatments that he needs to undergo to get his life back on healthy track. Most importantly, as he suffers from the deadly accident, the worker might have to stay at home temporarily or permanently. He needs money to fill this gap when he is unable to work and thereby take care of the basic needs of food and clothing of his family.

It is very important that the victim worker files for the compensation claim so that he can cater to his monetary needs and render his burdens easy. It will be very convenient to win the rightful amount if the worker avails the help of the compensation attorney and files the personal injury claims in due time. If the worker does not lodge for his compensation I time then his claim may get rejected and may get considered as invalid by law. Moreover, if claimed on time, the worker may find it very easy to find the witnesses and proofs to render his case as a very easy win.

After 2 years her original Solicitors withdrew from the case as they believed her claim had less than a 50% chance of succeeding. Miss H contacted Cooks who agreed to represent her on a No win No fee basis.

Within 18 months the matter was resolved and Miss H received a settlement cheque of £300,000.00. She told us
"Thank you Cooks for believing in me and my claim. My Solicitor was always available to me and happy to explain each step of the process. The only surprise was how much you managed to obtain for me without the need to go to trial. I will tell all my friends about your great service."
