Individuals that were employed by the railroad industry were exposed to many dangers at the workplace. While many of these dangers were evident to those who took on these roles, there were more insidious factors at play. For instance, asbestos was a material that was heavily used to design, fuel, and repair railroad equipment and cars. While the manufacturers of this product were aware that it was dangerous for those exposed to it, they made the choice to hide the toxicity of asbestos to everyone.
The harmful effects of asbestos exposure come from ingesting and inhaling microscopic asbestos fibers of this widely used product. The manufacturers hid the truth from individuals and businesses for several decades, negatively impacting the health of millions of workers and citizens throughout the United States.
If you were employed by a railroad company prior to 1982, you most likely suffered from toxic exposure due to microscopic asbestos particles polluting your environment. Once these particles enter your system, they can easily become stuck, embedding deep into your soft tissue, and creating health problems for you.
These can present themselves in scarring of the lungs, cancer, and other health problems including a mesothelioma diagnosis. Many victims of asbestos exposure do not realize that they have a related health problem because it can take more than four decades for these embedded fibers to begin showing symptoms of an asbestos disease.
Our team of asbestos and mesothelioma lawyers 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 or diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may still qualify for money. An evaluation from a physician may show scarring on your lungs or other developments that can be attributed to your time employed by a railroad company.
