Locomotive engineers and other railway workers at risk for mesothelioma
In recent news about the dangers of asbestos, the widow of a locomotive engineer who died from mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos is appealing for his old work colleagues to help in her lawsuit for compensation.
The man was diagnosed with the asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma last year.
The family of the locomotive engineer worker has now launched a search for his former work colleagues who can help prove that his illness was due to asbestos exposure at work.
His wife recalls that the only time her husband could recall being exposed to asbestos was while working for railway companies on locomotives.
Her husband was employed as a locomotive engineer between 1935 and 1957 where asbestos was used as an insulation material on the locomotives.
When the engine was stripped down it caused clouds of asbestos dust to rise into the air, covering surrounding surfaces and the men working nearby.
Many locomotive engineers and other types of railway workers have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
