What’s the problem?
Cancer is one of the most widely diagnosed occupational diseases among railroad workers in the U.S. today. A great number of these cases could have been prevented if railroad companies would simply abide by government regulations and take basic precautions to provide a safe workplace. Sadly, many railroad workers not only develop cancer through occupational exposure, they also go uncompensated for their injuries.
Which Railroad Jobs Increase the Risk of Cancer?
You may be at an increased risk of getting cancer if you are currently employed or formerly worked in any of the following railway occupations:
- Train conductor
- Freight conductor
- Line engineer
- Station agent
- Ticket collector
- And more
Even if your job is not on this list, and you got cancer after working a railroad job, you may be entitled to compensation through the filing of a lawsuit and we can help.
FELA Cancer Lawsuit Information
Railroad workers who want to seek recovery for a workplace injury must file a lawsuit under the Federal Employers Liability Act (“FELA”). Claimants under FELA may recover compensation to assist with medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. Unlike workers’ compensation claims, FELA allows plaintiffs to seek damages for pain and suffering, and surviving family members can bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the railroad company in the event that their loved one died.
