VICTIMS OF DIESEL EXPOSURES

Railroad Passengers

Your Polluted Commute:

Diesel exhaust is a known carcinogen which has also been linked asthma, COPD, heart conditions and strokes.  Short term exposures may cause headache, coughing, dizziness or chest tightness.  Long term exposures cause far more serious problems like various cancers and even leukemia.

In large metro areas like Chicago, hundreds of thousands of passengers travel by train daily.  These commuters, especially if they are riding in the train cars attached to a pulling locomotive, are exposed to substantial quantities of diesel exhaust during their trip.  When they arrive at Union Station in Chicago, the exposure to diesel exhaust continues because Union Station is poorly ventilated.   Thanks in part to the efforts of Chicago Tribune reporter Michael Hawthorne, the Environmental Protection Agency is now conducting air quality sampling at Union Station.

If you suspect that you have suffered a diesel-related illness as a result of your daily train commute, you may not be alone.  Contact Diesel Injury Law for a free consultation.
