Some railroad workers with pancreatic cancer were exposed to asbestos

Workers with pancreatic cancer from asbestos exposure may get a free lawsuit review via the form on this page.

In recent news about asbestos and potential health risks, an ex-railroad company employee has filed a lawsuit against his employer, contending his exposure to toxins during the course of his employment led to his pancreatic cancer.

Exposure to certain carcinogenic chemicals such as pesticides, nickel, chromium, and asbestos dust may increase a person's chances of developing pancreatic cancer.

Before the transition from steam- to diesel-powered locomotives during the 1950s certain railroad workers had the opportunity for significant occupational exposure to asbestos. Past studies have demonstrated that older workers with jobs associated with the repair of steam locomotives had the most exposure.

The man worked as a brakeman and conductor from 1984 until July 2009.

The suit states that during the course of his employment, he was exposed to toxic substances, including asbestos that caused him to develop pancreatic cancer.

He blames the railroad company for failing to provide a safe place to work, for failing to provide safe equipment, and for failing to warn workers about the dangers of asbestos.

From shipfitters, pipefitters and demolition workers, to those toiling on railroads and in construction, Weitz & Luxenberg has many clients whose needless and entirely avoidable exposure to asbestos ultimately led to them developing asbestos-related diseases.

Weitz & Luxenberg is a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years.

Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their asbestos related disease.
