Our lawyers are representing current and former railroad workers who were diagnosed with cancer. Tragically, many railroad employees develop this life-threatening disease through occupational exposure to asbestos, diesel and other cancer-causing substances (carcinogens).
Free Confidential Lawsuit Evaluation: If you are a current or former railroad worker who got cancer, you should contact our law firm immediately. You may be entitled to compensation by filing a suit and our lawyers can help.
What’s the problem?
Due to the presence of carcinogens in the workplace, railroad workers are at risk for developing many forms of occupational cancer. Exposure to asbestos, benzyne, chemical solvents, and welding fumes are common examples of conditions which can lead to the development of cancer in railroad workers. Unfortunately, these diseases often go undiagnosed for years or even decades, making them more difficult to treat and likely to cause serious injury and even death.
Which Occupations May Expose Me to Cancer?
If you or a loved one got cancer after working any of the following railroad jobs (including positions not listed below), you may be entitled to compensation through the filing of a lawsuit:
- Train conductor
- Freight conductor
- Line engineer
- Station agent
- Ticket collector
- And more
FELA Employee Rights
Under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (or FELA), a lawsuit can be filed against a railroad company by an employee whose injury was caused or contributed to by the company’s negligence. Claimants under FELA may recover compensation to assist with medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. Unlike workers’ compensation claims, FELA allows plaintiffs to seek damages for pain and suffering, and surviving family members can bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the railroad company in the event that their loved one died.
