Coal miner’s $2 million injury award upheld by Supreme Court
The Supreme Court recently upheld a court ruling which awarded a West Virginia coal miner almost $2 million after he injured his wrist while working.
The man had been repairing a mantrip vehicle when his wrist was crushed in the vehicle. The man suffered permanent pain from the accident and loss of mobility in his wrist and hand. He never returned to work.
The man was awarded almost $2 million by a jury in 2006. Recently, following an appeals case made by the man’s former company, the Supreme Court upheld the previous ruling.
