Black Lung

Our firm has developed expertise in state and federal black lung litigation. Recent amendments to the federal black lung law have eased the burden on coal miners to obtain benefits. We have found that the coal companies will aggressively fight these claims, and the coal miner needs an equally aggressive attorney to defend the miner’s position. Our firm represents coal miners before the Department of Labor Claims Examiner, before the Administrative Law Judge, before the Benefits Review Board, and we also litigate these claim as the federal circuit court of appeals level.

The coal miner has been an important part of our community here in Southern Illinois and throughout the rest of our region. It is a pleasure to help them in their time of need.

We take on both State and Federal Blank Lung cases.
