Black Lung Claims

Pneumoconiosis, commonly known as black lung, is one of the many aspects of insurance law in West Virginia. A claim for black lung needs to be carefully assessed by an experienced lawyer to determine the strength of the case. Although the federal Black Lung Program provides some measure of compensation to coal miners who are disabled by the disease, it's best to speak to a lawyer to determine the scope of your claim.

No matter your situation or circumstances, we’re here to provide the information you require to pursue the benefits entitled to you. Whether you’re actively pursuing compensation or just need more information about how to proceed with a black lung claim, we’re here to help.

The effects of black lung disease can be life-changing and devastating for the person affected and their family. Although the cause of the illness is well-documented and understood, cases of black lung continue to occur. Coal mine operations put hard-working men and women at risk, and the consequences of their employment can be devastating.

If you have been diagnosed with black lung disease, talk to our professional insurance lawyers about submitting a claim to protect your future and that of your family.
