Mine Operator Responsibilities for Damages

In 1966, laws were passed which held bituminous underground coal mine operators liable for mine subsidence damage to certain dwellings and structures. Substantial amendments were made to this law in 1994. All structure owners in the anthracite and bituminous coal regions should check to see if their structures are covered by these laws and determine if mine subsidence insurance is necessary.
