Long-Term Exposure Can Lead To Occupational Illnesses
One of the most unfortunate realities of life on the railroad is the hazards you are constantly exposed to. But while you can take safety precautions for most of the risks you face, you may not be aware of all of them. As an age-old industry, the railroads existed before we even knew of the dangers of asbestos. This fact, along with exposure to toxic chemicals such as PCBs, diesel fumes and rail dust, can increase the risk of occupational illnesses.
If you or someone you love has developed an illness caused by your service to a railroad corporation, don’t wait to call us. Let the lawyers of Hildebrand McLeod & Nelson LLP help you pursue full and fair compensation today.
Be Prepared To Take Swift Action
Some diseases may take many years to manifest. This means that even if you no longer work for a rail company, you may still have a valid claim. Know what to look out for and contact us immediately if symptoms began to show.
Common conditions that have affected railroad employees include:
- Lung cancer and lung-related illnesses
- Hodgkin’s disease
- Bladder cancer
- Neurological disorders
Your injuries or illnesses cannot wait. If left untreated, they can become debilitating or even fatal. Getting full compensation can allow you to pay for the necessary treatments you need.
