 Retired Railroad Workers Secure Your Well-Deserved Asbestos Compensation

Your dedicated service in the railroad industry might have exposed you to a hidden danger – asbestos. Asbestos exposure has been linked to a range of life-threatening illnesses, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, throat cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, and colon cancer. The insidious nature of these diseases means they can take up to four decades to manifest after exposure.


To ensure your well-being and peace of mind in retirement, it’s crucial to stay vigilant with routine medical screenings. Early detection of asbestos-related diseases is the key to timely treatment and improved outcomes.


If you or a loved one has developed cancer following a career in an asbestos-exposed environment, our compassionate legal team is here to assist you. Currently, there’s over $30 billion set aside in asbestos trust funds to provide financial relief to individuals facing health problems due to asbestos exposure.


Our experienced attorneys simplify the process of filing claims with these trusts to ensure you receive the compensation you rightfully deserve. Even if a family member has tragically passed away from one of these illnesses, our team can guide you through your options and assess your eligibility to file an asbestos or mesothelioma claim.


What sets us apart is our commitment to you – we work on a contingency basis. This means we only accept payment if we successfully recover compensation in your case. When you reach out to us, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by discussing your asbestos case.


Factors Affecting Asbestos-Related Disease Risk:

Understanding how asbestos exposure impacts an individual involves considering several factors:


Dose: The amount of asbestos an individual was exposed to.

Duration: The length of exposure over time.

Fiber Characteristics: The size, shape, and chemical makeup of asbestos fibers.

Exposure Source: Where the exposure occurred.

Individual Risk Factors: Smoking and pre-existing lung diseases.

Genetic Factors: Such as having a germline mutation in BAP1.

While all forms of asbestos are hazardous, certain types may carry higher health risks. Studies suggest that amphibole asbestos fibers may pose a greater risk for mesothelioma due to their longer retention in the lungs compared to chrysotile.


The Impact of Smoking:

Numerous studies have revealed the heightened risk when smoking and asbestos exposure converge. Smokers exposed to asbestos face a greater risk of lung cancer than if their risks from smoking and asbestos were considered separately. Quitting smoking can reduce the risk of lung cancer among asbestos-exposed individuals. However, if you’ve been exposed to asbestos, it’s best to avoid smoking altogether.


Detecting Asbestos-Related Diseases:

If you suspect or have a history of asbestos exposure, inform your doctor about your exposure history and any related symptoms. Asbestos-related diseases can remain dormant for decades, making early detection crucial. Watch out for symptoms such as shortness of breath, persistent cough, chest pain, and weight loss.


Medical examinations, including chest X-rays and lung function tests, may be recommended. Chest X-rays can identify early signs of asbestos-related lung diseases. A lung biopsy is the most reliable test for confirming asbestos exposure, while bronchoscopy is a less invasive alternative.
