Locomotive workers: Our asbestos lawyers can help you seek compensation for your mesothelioma.
A former locomotive worker with mesothelioma is marrying his ex-wife after 15 years of being apart, reported the Evening Telegraph on August 21, 2008.
The man, just 51, believes he may have been exposed to asbestos while in the Army for 11 years. He recalls an occasion when he worked in a bombed building that contained asbestos.
He also worked on locomotives for a decade. Steam locomotives and some diesels were insulated with asbestos.
Insulation was used around boxcars and cabooses, refrigeration units, pipes, and steam and hot water lines.One other possible exposure could be second-hand as his father recalled working on a locomotive and using the asbestos material there as snowballs to play football with it.
He may have been exposed to the asbestos dust and fibers on his father's work overalls, which he wore home.
Many have come forward to say their work or home environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
