Chronic and Fatal Injury Caused by Exposure
Railroad workers are not only subject to immediately dangerous conditions, but can suffer serious injury over time due to asbestos exposure. Unfortunately, railroad workers who are diagnosed with mesothelioma are still common, as asbestos is a material that has been used in railroading for the past century. Cahill & Perry, P.C., is a dedicated law firm focused on helping victims of railroad injury or disease, including mesothelioma, protect their rights and recover compensation for their losses, including the wrongful death of a loved one.
Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure to Railroad Workers
Throughout the history of railroad construction and operation, railroad workers have been exposed to asbestos. Railroad companies and manufacturers used asbestos insulation on mains, pipes, boilers, brakes, gaskets, and the electrical and heat insulation in the walls, ceiling, and the flooring of rail cars. Long-term exposure to asbestos is a leading cause of a rare lung cancer known as mesothelioma.
Our railroad asbestos exposure attorneys represent clients throughout New York, Connecticut, Boston, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and nationally, in cases involving:
- Lung cancer
- Asbestos exposure
- Injured railroad workers
- Wrongful death
