Video: How Our VA Mesothelioma Lawyers Handle a Railroad Worker Cancer Claim - There are two important aspects of a railroad worker cancer claim: (1) the occupational setting and how it may have contributed to the cancer and (2) the medical case. Regarding the occupational setting, there are numerous carcinogens railroad workers may have been exposed to, like diesel exhaust fumes, during their career that could have caused the railroad worker to develop mesothelioma, lung cancer, or another horrible disease. Regarding the medical case, we work with the railroad worker's oncologist, chemotherapy nurses, radiation doctors, and other medical professionals who can show how devastating a cancer diagnosis can be for a patient.
