 Money For Retired Railroad Employees With Mesothelioma

Are you on of the millions of individuals that worked for a railroad company before 1982? If so, you are a part of a group of individuals that were exposed to heavy concentrations of asbestos at your place of employment. Asbestos is a highly toxic material that was not regulated even though the dangers of this material were well known to those who sold and manufactured it.

Asbestos manufacturers were greedy and chose to continue making money off of this versatile material instead of properly warning those working around it of its harmful risks. Asbestos was found everywhere from materials inside of locomotives all the way to the brake pads. Regardless of what your job title was, if you worked for a railroad company, there is a strong likelihood that you were exposed to asbestos.

At Sammons & Berry, P.C. our team works to get money for retired railroad employees with mesothelioma, lung cancer, throat cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, and asbestosis. If you are a retired railroad worker that has been diagnosed with any of these asbestos-related illnesses we are here to help you.

There is currently more than $30 billion dollars sitting in asbestos trust funds for those whose health has been affected by this dangerous material. We want to help you and your family get your share of the money for the time you spent working with asbestos.

You do not have to have a mesothelioma or cancer diagnosis to qualify for compensation. If you have experience labored breathing, shortness of breath, or a persistent cough, you may have asbestosis. Asbestosis victims are able to draw financial compensation from these trusts.

What Is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the cells that make up the mesothelium. The mesothelium is the lining or membrane that covers and protects various internal organs of the body. The mesothelium is composed of two layers of specialized cells known as mesothelial cells. One layer directly surrounds the internal organs; the other forms a protective sac around thoracic and peritoneal organs. The most common form of mesothelioma affects the pleura, which is the membrane or sac that lines the lungs and chest cavity.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Signs and symptoms of mesothelioma vary depending on where the cancer occurs.

Pleural mesothelioma, which affects the tissue that surrounds the lungs, causes signs and symptoms that may include:

  • Chest pain
  • Painful coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Unusual lumps of tissue under the skin on your chest
  • Unexplained weight loss

Peritoneal mesothelioma, which occurs in tissue in the abdomen, causes signs and symptoms that may include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Nausea
  • Unexplained weight loss
