Nationwide Legal Help For Workers Exposed To Asbestos


As early as the 1930s, railroad companies had evidence that asbestos-laden products posed a serious health threat to their workers. And yet, the railroad companies did virtually nothing to protect their workers from harm for decades. In fact, exposure to asbestos fibers remained an everyday part of employment for thousands of U.S. railroad workers during the 1950s, 60s and 70s.

Today, many of these same workers are developing asbestos-related lung cancers such as mesothelioma at alarming rates.

Asbestos Products In The Railroad Industry

Some of the many railroad industry products known to have contained asbestos include:

  • Boiler and pipe insulation
  • Brake shoes and linings
  • Gaskets
  • Valves
  • Clutch assemblies
  • Packing materials
  • Block insulation
  • Hydraulic assemblies
  • Floor coverings
  • Adhesives
  • Cement compounds
  • Rope
  • Fireproofing materials
  • Paint
  • Welding gloves and shields

Taking Action To Protect Your Legal Rights

The Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA) allows injured railroad workers to sue their employers for job-related injuries, including diseases such as asbestos lung cancer and mesothelioma. At The Gori Law Firm, we understand this federal law and have had extensive experience with railroad-related asbestos and mesothelioma cases in Missouri, Illinois and across the United States.

We can also help you in other important ways. We can serve as a source of answers and useful information. We can connect you with local support resources and organizations dedicated to helping victims. Our lawyers may even be able to recommend leading physicians in your area whom we’re familiar with from our work on behalf of previous clients.
