Railroad worker injury lawyers at Arnold & Itkin filed suit in Jacksonville, Florida on behalf of a lifelong railroad worker who died of lung cancer. His employment took him away from his family to various railyards throughout the country, where he did maintenance and repair work. The numerous toxic substances he inhaled doing this work ultimately caused cancer and caused his life to end tragically well before it should have.
Every railroad worker has the right to safe working conditions. When safety isn’t guaranteed, employees have the right to know the risks they face and the right to be equipped to mitigate those risks. Our client was killed because he wasn’t properly informed or equipped about the toxins he was exposed to on a daily basis for a large portion of his life. His employer should take responsibility for that and compensate his family appropriately for what they’ve suffered from the loss of a loved one.
We are proud to represent his family in seeking the compensation they deserve for the sacrifices this man made. The case was filed in Duval County, FL.
