Common Mining Equipment Defects

The mining industry utilizes a wide range of equipment for specific mining activities. The equipment can vary depending on whether the work is done underground or above ground, and what is being mined, whether it is coal or otherwise. Any type of defect in design or construction can lead to serious injuries for the equipment operator and co-workers.

We can represent clients who have been injured by defective mining equipment such as:

  • Continuous miners
  • Roof Bolters
  • Shuttle cars and earth moving equipment
