Railroad-Related Injury FAQs

What is asbestos & why is it harmful?

Asbestos are commonly occurring fibrous minerals, mined from the ground during the 20th century. Because asbestos is resistant to heat, is vastly available, and relatively expensive, American companies have incorporated it into their products. Bundles of asbestos become airborne when they are disturbed, leading to the release of tiny particles and the potential for those around them to inhale the particles. Unfortunately, asbestos partciles can remain int he body for decades, and can lead to serious illness such as mesothelioma and other forms of cancer.

How is mesothelioma different from lung cancer?

While both mesothelioma and lung cancer can be caused by exposure to asbestos, mesothelioma shows up in the lungs, heart, area around the heart, and the linings of the abdominal cavity. Railroad, construction, and industrial workers are commonly exposed to asbestos, however; family members and people who live with a worker who has been exposed to asbestos also face the risk of being diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Why aren't railroad workers covered by workers' comp insurance?

Railroad workers who are injured on the job must file a lawsuit under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA). Because injured railroad workers who are unsuccessful in bringing a FELA claim are left with no recourse, it is important to hire a knowledgeable attorney when pursuing a railroad injury claim.

Who protects injured passengers in train derailments?

There are many state and federal laws in place to protect passengers who sustain injuries in train derailments and railroad accidents. The type of legal action to pursue will depend on where and why the train derails. With experience handling train derailment cases, we are prepared to answer any questions our clients may have and to take on even the most complex cases.
