What’s the Problem?
October 17, 2016 – According to the lawsuit, Stanley Adams was employed with Union Pacific Railroad Company from 1974 to 2009, during which time he was exposed to toxic substances that caused him to develop renal cancer.
Prior to his death from complications of the disease on February 15, 2015, he suffered great pain, mental anguish, lost income and medical expenses, according to the lawsuit.
Plaintiff claims that Union Pacific was ultimately responsible for the death because the company negligently exposed Adams to asbestos, cigarette smoke and diesel fumes, failing to provide a safe and adequate work environment.
The complaint was filed against Union Pacific Railroad Company on September 14, 2016 in St. Clair County Circuit Court under case number 16-L-488. Plaintiff is requesting a jury trial and compensation in excess of $50,000, plus the cost of the suit.
