Railroad Worker Exposure

Railroad workers can develop occupational cancer in many ways. A typical rail worker is often exposed to several known carcinogens. Workers are often exposed to benzene, asbestos, chemical solvents, and toxic welding fumes. Any of these substances can trigger the development of cancer. One big problem is that the associated diseases often go undiagnosed in their early stages. That makes them more difficult to treat and more likely to cause serious injury, even death.

Railroad Worker Asbestos Exposure

From 1990 – 1999, the railroad industry was the fourth most frequently listed industry on the death certificates of people 15 or older who died from asbestosis. Studies have shown asbestosis victims have a greater risk of developing malignant mesothelioma cancer. The many deaths in railroad workers from asbestosis is likely due to the fact that the railroad industry has long used asbestos products for heat shielding and insulation.

Railroad Company Negligence

A Railroad can be found negligent in cases where it failed to:

•  provide a safe work environment 
•  provide proper tools or equipment 
•  perform frequent inspections and maintenance 
•  adequately train their employees

Settlement Information 

Our FELA lawyers calculate potential railroad cancer settlements that include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. If a railroad worker dies as a result of injuries, a wrongful death claim will take into account the family’s loss of income. If there is no provision for loss of consortium, survivors may make a claim on the pain and suffering the loved one experienced before dying.

Railroad Workers Eligible for Compensation 

Exposure to radioactive materials, asbestos, benzene and other toxic chemicals make railroad work particularly dangerous for several types of employees:

  • Engineers
  • Conductors
  • Switchman
  • Carman
  • Track maintenance
  • Machinists
  • Clerk type workers
