Railroad Workers & Asbestos Exposure

Legal Advocacy for Railroad Workers with Asbestos Mesothelioma

Until 1979—the year when asbestos was banned for use in manufacturing products in the United States—many railroad workers received heavy exposure to asbestos. The railroad industry utilized this material in many products.

Now, we know that mesothelioma cancer is directly caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos mesothelioma is an extremely serious and dangerous form of cancer. Researchers believe that mesothelioma is only caused by exposure to asbestos. Symptoms can potentially take up to 50 years to develop. Even though asbestos is no longer used in American manufacturing, residual exposure continues to affect many individuals. Between 2,000 and 3,000 individuals are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year. The railroad industry plays a role in this sobering statistic.

  • Individuals who conducted the following tasks in the railroad industry, among others, may be at risk for mesothelioma:
    • Car coupling / separation
    • Signal repair
    • Brake inspection
    • Locomotive inspection
