Shapiro & Appleton

I've been diagnosed with a lung disease, and I don't know when it really started. Do I have to fill out an accident report for a disease that I think has been caused by something at the railroad?

The federal law governing worker claims against their railroad employer is called the Federal Employers Liability Act.  There is no mandatory requirement for any written accident report.  Consult with an experienced Virginia railroad worker injury attorney as to whether you should demand that one be filed for a disease that does not have a clear original date it began.
