My colleague Rick Shapiro recently wrote an article that highlighted how the temptation to be complacent was irresistible to railroad management in not removing asbestos which causes Mesothelioma.
Mainly because the death of the worker was not instantaneous, it was hidden and it was unknown which of the railroad’s employees would be the unlucky one (supervisor, claim agent, engineer, car men-all faced the Russian roulette spin).
That meant avoiding responsibility for the deaths of thousands of people. The outrage over railroad neglect is now played out in the privacy of chemotherapy oncology clinics, in hospice care of mesothelioma cancer patients
But, the main point of this article is to bring to light how asbestos cancer fatalities are delayed for years.
