The railroads learned that diesel exhaust contains carcinogens in the 1950’s. When did they share that fact with you? Our experienced FELA counsel will determine if your railroad exposures caused your illness and if so, we will attempt to negotiate a settlement with the railroad or file a lawsuit on your behalf.
SICKENED RAILROAD EMPLOYEES
MAY BE ENTITLED TO COMPENSATION UNDER THE FELA
Our Chicago-based FELA law firm will handle claims under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act nationwide. Acute injuries on the railroad have decreased over time, but the railroad safety data trumpeted by rail executives often ignores the grim tab of occupational diseases suffered by railroad engineers, conductors, switchman, machinists, mechanics, carmen, pipefitters, boilermakers and track department employees.
Thanks to our unique FELA toxic tort experience, Diesel Injury Law can prove that your railroad exposures caused diseases such as:
Cancers of the Lung, Bladder, Kidney, Nose, Throat, Mouth & Stomach
Blood and Bone Marrow Disorders including: Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), Multiple Myeloma, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma & Aplastic Anemia
If you suspect your diagnosis or that of a loved one is work-related, contact Diesel Injury Law today to speak directly with a railroad toxic tort attorney. The time to file a claim is limited.
