Arnold & Itkin has filed suit on behalf of a railroad worker who was repeatedly exposed to hazardous chemicals throughout his work. Continuous exposure to these chemicals, like silica, asbestos, and diesel fumes, can be incredibly dangerous to a person’s health. Although the railroad knew this, the company failed to properly warn its employees, let alone give them adequate training, materials, or protective equipment.
Our client developed aggressive lung cancer due to his exposure to these hazardous materials while working for the railroad and did not survive his illness. Our lawyers will fight in memory of our client on behalf of his family to find the answers and justice that they deserve.
“Employers have a duty to protect their clients from harmful chemicals and the dangers surrounding them. This is especially true when the company knows the potential danger of those chemicals,” said our attorneys in a statement.
This lawsuit was filed in Douglas County.
