Railroad workers often encounter significant dangers on the job due to unsafe working conditions.

One of the most prevalent risks is exposure to high levels of carcinogenic substances such as benzene, creosote, and asbestos, which can lead to cancer or other severe illnesses.

If you're a railroad worker diagnosed with lung cancer or another chronic condition due to workplace exposure, you have the right to consult with an attorney to explore your legal options. Reach out to us for a free consultation.

Railroad Cancer & Illnesses Linked to Railroad Work

Railroad workers are exposed to several toxic substances on the job, including:

  • Benzene in diesel exhaust
  • Asbestos in insulation, locomotives, and buildings
  • Creosote in railroad ties
  • Glyphosate used on railroad rights-of-way
  • Heavy metals in welding fumes (cadmium, manganese)
  • Solvents used by shop craft workers

Exposure to these carcinogens can lead to various cancers and chronic illnesses, such as bladder cancer, leukemia, mesothelioma, esophageal cancer, non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and kidney and lung cancer.

Filing a FELA Claim for Compensation with a Railroad Cancer Lawyer

Railroad workers injured on the job or who develop a work-related medical condition are covered by the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) rather than workers’ compensation insurance.

Established in 1908, FELA enables injured and ill railroad workers to file claims against their employer, specific employees, or a third-party manufacturer responsible for their damages.

Unlike workers ' compensation insurance, FELA does not automatically hold employers liable for employee injuries. Instead, a person filing a FELA claim must prove that the defendant was legally negligent and that this negligence caused or contributed to their injury or, in cases like these, contributed to the worker’s lung cancer.

Conversely, successful claims allow railroad workers to recover compensation for economic and non-economic losses. During an initial consultation, a railroad lung cancer lawyer can provide detailed information about the filing options available to a particular worker.

Railroad Cancer Settlement Amounts

Under FELA, railroad workers entitled to compensation due to employer negligence could recover damages for:

  • Medical expenses, including past and future treatments, medications, and hospital bills
  • Lost wages due to time off work or inability to perform job duties
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Depression, anxiety, PTSD, or other mental anguish

Our team of railroad attorneys is dedicated to protecting your rights and ensuring you receive fair and just compensation for your suffering due to employer negligence. Contact us today for a consultation.

We believe all eligible railroad workers who are victims of FELA lung cancer and leukemia diagnoses should receive justice and potential compensation, beginning with a free, private case review with our experienced legal team.
