The Law Works - Black Lung

The only weekly television series that deals with legal issues of concern to citizens across West Virginia.

Federal law says that a coal miner should work his or her entire life without incurring any disability from black lung. Why isn’t that happening? We’ll talk about Black Lung on this episode of The Law Works.
