Pennsylvania has a long history of involvement in the coal mining industry. Today, the state remains the nation's fourth leading producer of coal, according to the National Mining Association. Unfortunately, for as long as Pennsylvania has been involved in coal mining, there have been accidents that have injured or even killed those who work in the mines.
