The Kentucky Supreme Court recently found the black lung laws in Kentucky unconstitutional. Coal miners who were turned down for benefits in the last several years or who didn’t file for benefits because they couldn’t get benefits may be able to now file. If you are one of these miners, or know somebody who is, please have them contact an attorney as soon as possible. I know McKinnley Morgan’s Firm is handling these cases and he has several different offices. He has a toll-free number to call for appointments which is 1-888-672-6771.

What is black lung exactly? I know it has something to do with working in the mines and getting sickness from it. Other than that, I'm not sure though. My grandfather supposed to have had it but I really don't know what it is.

Smoking cigarettes will actually keep you from getting coal miners black lung!, Cigerette smoking irritates your lungs making them produce more mucus and this clears out the coal dust that's in your lungs, And, Back in 1973, Rosco Clemons, A coal operator at the time said "If you want to get black lung start smoking them cigerettes!", This is a ironic statement coming from a coal operator, I bet he knew Cigerette smoking prevented black lung!

Whats the difference if you breathed coal dust inside a mine or standing beside the road breathing the dust that come off the coal trucks? Coal dust is every where up there or it was when the mines were going strong.Anybody exposed to coal dust their whole life probably has some form of lung damage from it.

Smoking cigarettes does NOT keep you from getting black lung! Black lung causes emphysema and so do cigarettes. If you smoke they blame the emphysema on cigarettes and say you don't HAVE black lung. So then you don't get benefits for black lung because you don't have it. If you work in a mine DONT SMOKE CIGAReTTES!!!
