Currently, there is more than $30 billion dollars put aside in bankruptcy trusts to compensate injured workers and their families who suffered from asbestos exposure. The payouts from these trusts are based on a variety of factors including historic verdict and settlement values, disease and injury classifications, and the individual worker’s exposure history. Often these payments represent only a fraction of past verdicts and settlements; however, for workers who qualify, these payments can reward a significant form of compensation.
Unfortunately, many workers who have felt the effects of asbestos exposure are unaware of the fact that they qualify for payments from these trusts. If you believe you or a family member were exposed to asbestos reach out to our law firm. We will work with you every step of the way to collect evidence, file your claim, and maximize compensation.
Asbestos in the Railroad Industry
For railroad workers that were employed prior to 1982, there is a very real risk that you have been exposed to asbestos in the workplace. Asbestos was a heavily used material in the railroad industry. It could be found in railroad equipment and buildings because of its heat-resistant properties. Railroaders that worked with older equipment or in repair yards are at the highest risk, as they may have inhaled dust containing asbestos as the parts wore down. Although your employment was decades ago, the symptoms of asbestos-related diseases can manifest up to four decades after the exposure. This makes it vital to stay proactive with your health and watch for symptoms of exposure.
