 Railroad Workers in Portland, OR Asbestos Claims

Individuals that worked in the railroad industry before 1982 may qualify for money as a result of working with asbestos-containing materials.

When Was Asbestos Discovered To Be Toxic?

The knowledge that asbestos exposure was dangerous dates back to more than a century ago. In the 1930s asbestos had been labeled as a toxin by the Association of American Railroads. In the 1950s railroad companies were aware that working closely with asbestos could lead to the development of cancer. Even though this knowledge was readily available to these companies, they chose to continue relying on asbestos to fulfill many different roles. These companies chose to protect their bottomline instead of protect the individuals they employed.
