Toxic exposure attorneys at Arnold & Itkin have filed suit for a patriarch whose employer of 35 years, a Class I railroad, was knowingly exposing him to highly toxic chemicals, including asbestos. As a result of these exposures, he developed lung cancer and has been fighting for his life.
Employers are required by law to keep workers safe from and informed about the risks they face on the job. The defendant failed on both counts to an alarming degree. The railroad internally measured workers’ exposure levels, including our client’s, without notifying employees why they had to go to certain medical testing and physical appointments. Not only did the defendant fail to come clean with our client about what he was exposed to, but they robbed him of the opportunity to seek medical care while he still had time.
Our client’s whole world has been torn apart due to this railroad’s decision to put profits over protection for workers. Our railroad injury lawyers are eager to set this man’s broken life straight again and help him obtain the financial compensation he requires to begin to rebuild his world in the wake of this tragedy.
