We are currently representing current or former railroad workers that suffer from certain types of cancer.
Cancer is one of the most prevalent occupational diseases among railroad workers and it can lead to permanent disability, great pain and suffering, and even death. It can be preventable if the railroad company simply adheres to governmental regulations and takes precaution to provide a safe workplace. Tragically, many railroaders not only develop this devastating disease through occupational exposure, they also go uncompensated. If you or a loved one is suffering from any cancer, contact Slater Slater Schulman LLP for help. For over three decades we have helped recover millions for victims and their families.
Under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (or FELA), a railroad company can be sued by an employee whose injury or illness was caused or contributed to by the company’s negligence. Claimants under FELA may recover compensation for the considerable costs of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy, as well as for lost income and loss of earning power. Unlike workers’ compensation claims, FELA allows the plaintiff to seek damages for pain and suffering, additionally, surviving family members can bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the railroad company for loved ones who have passed.
You may be entitled to recover damages from the railroad companies for your cancer-related injuries. Slater Slater Schulman LLP is dedicated to helping Railroad Workers pursue these claims. Contact Slater Slater Schulman LLP today at 855-LAW-RAIL or 800-251-6990 to discuss your legal options.
