Arnold & Itkin’s railroad injury attorneys are representing a lifelong Fabens, Texas resident who developed a severe illness because of his job. During his career of approximately 25 years with a Class I railroad, our client was exposed to numerous toxic and cancer-causing substances, including asbestos. His exposure to these dangerous materials caused him to develop lung cancer that’s required life-altering chemotherapy and radiation treatment. His illness has caused him extensive pain, suffering, and financial damage.
To make this situation even worse, the railroad company knew that its workers were being exposed to toxic substances while on the job. Yet, the railroad decided not to disclose this danger to them. Now, our client is paying the price for his employer’s decisions that were callous and designed to save money. This negligence has placed an immense burden on this man and his family, and they deserve justice and compensation.
We are excited to help this hardworking and dedicated railroad worker get his life, and the lives of his family members, back on track. Fighting for justice on behalf of this man will help him receive the compensation he deserves and will remind companies of their responsibility to protect the men and women who work for them. We filed this case in Harris County, Texas.
