We only accept a small number of cases to ensure we are able to provide the personalized, timely service our clients deserve.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Some businesses, such as railroads, may find it necessary to reduce their operating costs by using outdated equipment, cheaper fuels and practices deemed unsafe. This places profits ahead of employee safety. This has resulted in a significant number of American workers who have worked hard suffering from diesel-related illnesses, including lung cancer. At Diesel Injury Law, we are prepared to fight for these individuals. It has been widely accepted that diesel exhaust has been connected to cancer since about the 1950s. However, companies continue to send workers into work sites that lack the appropriate ventilation without warning, proper training or the correct protective equipment, forcing them to breathe in diesel exhaust, coating their lungs with the soot. After the constant exposure, day after day and persistent symptoms, such as headaches, lightheadedness, irritation in the ear, nose, and throat, chest tightness and nausea, the long-term effects are starting to become apparent. Despite the presence of temporary symptoms related to daily exposure, there may be long-term serious illnesses that present themselves, which may include cancer of the stomach, bladder, kidneys, lungs and throat, as well as other pulmonary issues, including COPD and asthma. Sadly, many medical professionals are unaware of the damaging effects of diesel exhaust and may cite a different cause for the ailment, such as smoking. This diagnosis is made with no prior knowledge of the workplace environment. Through their examinations, doctors don’t realize the root cause is exposure to the exhaust these individuals have been exposed to. This leads to patients who simply accept their diagnosis at face value and don’t pursue further legal action. Hughes Law Offices strives to help these individuals make claims and get the compensation they deserve.
