For decades employees exposed to asbestos while working have been fighting for fair compensation for the time they spent working with this toxic material. Our attorneys work with retired railroad workers to help them explore their legal options and get cash for the time they spent working with asbestos and asbestos products.
More than $30 billion dollars has been set aside in bankruptcy trusts to compensate injured workers and their families who were exposed to asbestos. The payouts from these trusts are based on a number of factors including historic verdict and settlement values, disease and injury classifications, and the individual workers exposure history. Often these payments represent only a fraction of past verdicts and settlements; however, for workers who qualify, these payments can constitute a significant form of compensation.
Many retired railroad company workers do not know that they qualify for payments from these trusts. If you believe you or family members were exposed to asbestos – call or email us for a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION. Our team of experienced attorneys will review the facts in your case and answer any questions you may have.
Railroad Workers Exposed To Asbestos Deserve Compensation
Throughout all stages of production, the railroad industry relied heavily on asbestos and asbestos-containing products. Once these companies became aware of the serious risks of inhaling and ingesting asbestos fibers, instead of warning employees or developing safer solutions, they hid the dangers from the public. This led to many railroad employees being unfairly exposed to asbestos and developing asbestos related diseases.
Asbestos exposure has been linked with many life threatening illnesses. This includes mesothelioma, lung cancer, throat cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, and colon cancer. These cancers may take as long as four decades to develop after exposure to asbestos. This is why it is important to stay on top of routine medical screenings to catch the earliest warning signs of developing asbestos related diseases.
The amount of compensation you are awarded will depend on your work and medical history.
