Railroad workers were put into environments with heavy concentrations of asbestos. Even though the manufacturers of this toxic material were aware of the harmful effects of ingesting and inhaling it, they chose to continue producing it without sharing the risks. Unfortunately, this went on for decades, affecting millions of workers and citizens throughout the United States.
If you were employed by a railroad company before 1982, there is a high likelihood that you were put into environments where microscopic asbestos particles were in the air you breathed. Once these particles make their way into your system, they can become trapped, eventually embedding themselves into your soft tissue, and ultimately leading to genetic changes.
This can present itself in scarring of the lungs, cancer, and other health problems. Many victims of asbestos exposure do not realize that health problems they have developed may be linked to their exposure because it can take several decades for these embedded fibers to negatively impact your health.
Our team works with individuals and families to get the money they deserve for the time they spent working in dangerous environments. Even if you have never been diagnosed with a health condition, you may qualify for compensation if you have had significant exposure to asbestos in your lifetime. An evaluation from a physician may show scarring on your lungs or other developments that can be attributed to your time working in the railroad industry.
If you have a family member who has passed away after dedicating years of life to working in the railroad industry, you may also qualify for compensation. There are time limits to file claims for the deceased, so you will want to act quickly and reach out to our firm today to begin the claims process.
