How Railroads Fight Mesothelioma Claims - Info from a Railroad Mesothelioma Attorney


Rick Shapiro, a Virginia railroad mesothelioma attorney, talks about the tactics used by big railroads like Norfolk Southern, CSX, Burlington Northern, etc. to combat legitimate mesothelioma claims by workers. Rick explains that the tactics and defense arguments can border on ridiculous. Rick points out that some railroad lawyers will go all the way back to the high school that the worker attended to see if they may have been exposed to asbestos while at school. Why? Because the railroad is looking for anyone else to blame for the worker's asbestos exposure and eventual development of mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer.
