Railroad worker injury lawyers at Arnold & Itkin LLP filed suit on behalf of a Kansas man who was exposed to numerous toxic and cancer-causing substances, including asbestos, during his 40-plus year career working for a Class I railroad. As a result of these exposures, he developed lung cancer, and now lives in constant pain and fear of his terminal disease.
Employers are required by law to disclose any dangers in the workplace to their employees. Giving people fair warning of the dangers they face is not only legally required, but it’s also the decent thing to do. The railroad knew that its workers, including our client, were being exposed to toxic substances, but did not disclose this known danger to them. Our client paid the price of their cost-cutting, callous decisions. We are eager to help our client begin to right the tremendous wrong that has been done to him and his family, and hopefully prevent railroads from making similar harmful choices in the future.
The case was filed in St. Louis City, Missouri.
