Diesel Injury Law Protects Railroad Workers

Diesel Injury Law is a firm serving railroad workers who have been stricken with cancer, leukemia and other illnesses caused by chronic exposures to toxins. Often, railroad workers have become seriously ill from exposure to diesel exhaust and other carcinogens such as asbestos, welding fumes, silica, creosote, solvents and fumes. The firm’s railroad cancer attorneys conscientiously consider all possible exposures when consulting authorities and determining if an illness is related to a person’s occupation.

As a result of the exposures to the hydrocarbon, benzene, found in diesel fuel and exhaust at their workplaces, nearly all crafts of railroad workers experience diesel exhaust exposures. Sadly, doctors who are not familiar with railroad workers’ environments often attribute a worker’s illness to another cause, such as smoking rather than exposure to the toxic chemicals in diesel exhaust. Relying upon the doctors’ diagnoses, many sickened workers accept the diagnoses and do not pursue any legal options available to them as having Myelodysplastic syndromes.
