The railroad industry was among the many sectors greatly impacted by the devastating effects of asbestos exposure. Unfortunately, regulations concerning this hazardous material were not strictly enforced until the 1980s, long after numerous railroad employees had already been exposed to and unknowingly inhaled asbestos fibers for extended periods. Whether they worked as railroad mechanics in repair shops, railroad machinists, or train-service crew members, individuals in these positions were at risk of asbestos exposure.
Retired railroad workers who were employed before 1982 and have subsequently developed asbestos-related diseases may be eligible for compensation for the time they spent unknowingly endangering their health.
While a diagnosis of mesothelioma or lung cancer may be the most commonly recognized qualifications for compensation, it’s important to note that asbestos exposure has also been linked to other illnesses, including throat cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, and asbestosis.
Currently, there are over 30 billion dollars allocated in asbestos trust funds, awaiting claims from victims like yourself.
Is Compensation Available for Secondhand Asbestos Exposure?
Compensation may also be available for the spouses of retired railroad workers. As mentioned in a previous article, asbestos dust and fibers would often cling to the clothes and hair of employees, which inadvertently led to the exposure of their spouses as well, as the asbestos particles would be brought into the workers’ vehicles and homes. Our law firm is dedicated to fighting for asbestos compensation on behalf of the spouses of retired railroad workers across the country.
If you are a retired railroad worker who was married during your employment, both you and your spouse may qualify for compensation from asbestos trust funds. The experienced team at Sammons & Berry, P.C. specializes in working with retired railroad workers and their families to ensure they receive the financial compensation they deserve for being exposed to this toxic material.
