Railroad workers were constantly exposed to the harm presented by asbestos exposure, especially the people performing repair and maintenance jobs on parts of the train that were insulated with asbestos-containing products. If these materials needed to be cut, sanded or drilled into, asbestos dust would have been created releasing microscopic particles of asbestos into the near environment.
Diseases contracted after asbestos exposure in railroad workers
If you are diagnosed with a cancerous disease, you or a family member will deal with our staff over the phone and via emails ONLY, no need to travel at all. If you pass away before or during the process, surviving family members will receive the amount awarded by the claims.
If you receive the diagnosis of a noncancerous disease, we will need to do more testing (X-rays, breathing and blood tests) done at our medical facility in Birmingham, Alabama, where you will be accurately diagnosed.

Asbestos products handled by railroad workers
Railroad workers might have been exposed to asbestos on the job in multiple ways. Numerous products they regularly interacted with contained asbestos including sealing cement, gaskets, brake pads, ceiling tiles, wallboards, clutches, and plaster. Asbestos insulation was also present in various locomotive parts such as on the engine and boiler, as well as in electrical panels, carriages, driving cabins and even under the train. However, the repair and maintenance of asbestos-containing components were not the only jobs with a high risk of exposure. Due to the prevalence of asbestos, railroad workers who were assigned different tasks might have easily been exposed as well.
How can we help railroad workers who were exposed to asbestos?
Our main interest is to help you receive the compensation you deserve in order to cover your treatment costs and restore some of the quality of life you have lost since you were exposed to asbestos. We will file claims with the asbestos trust funds of the companies that were responsible for damaging your health by failing to warn you about the risks of being exposed to asbestos-containing materials.
