I've been diagnosed with mesothelioma cancer. I was never told it was connected to the railroad work I did many years ago. Can I still bring a railroad injury or disease claim? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Yes. The three-year limitation period for filing a claim does not begin until you knew, or should have known, of a connection between the cancer or disease and your railroad occupation.  If no medical professional or other person ever provided a clue to the worker that they had a claim, more than three years before now, three-year limitation period should not have expired but you need a railroad injury attorney’s advice for a more precise answer.
