About Us

Hughes Law Offices serves individuals and families stricken by diesel-related diseases, which include cancers, blood disorders and breathing problems.

We primarily serve railroad workers sickened by diesel exhaust and other railroad carcinogens. Railroad workers are often exposed to other toxins such as asbestos, solvents, fuels, welding fumes, silica, and creosote.  Our experienced railroad cancer lawyers take all those exposures into account when consulting with experts and determining whether your illness is work-related.  At Hughes Law Offices, we only accept a limited number of cases so you are sure to receive personal and timely attention from an experienced railroad cancer attorney. If you or a loved one worked for the railroad and have received a diagnosis that you suspect is work-related, contact us today as you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more about the types of cases we work on, visit our compilation of railroad settlements and verdicts here.
