Our client worked for various railroads from the 1950s into the 1980s. As a brakeman, he was exposed to asbestos at rail yards and roundhouses, as well as on trains. The railroads did not warn him that exposure to asbestos could be hazardous, and did not provide respiratory protection. After retiring, our client was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and died of the cancer at the age of 75. Settlements totaling over $2 million were obtained from several defendants, including the railroads and asbestos manufacturers and distributors.
