UNSAFE WORKING ENVIRONMENTS? YOU COULD QUALIFY FOR COMPENSATION
As is customary with most corporations, managers are urged to cut corners or save time, which creates unsafe environments. Safety procedures may be ignored or only half-followed, which raises the likelihood of a coal mining accident. However, even if every policy is followed, the dangerous nature of the job can still result in injury. Respiratory illnesses and black lung can develop over long periods of time while working in the mines – which qualify for compensation.
