Diesel Fumes & Your Health

Railroad Workers Exposed to Diesel Fumes and FELA Law

Thursday, February 17, 2011 2:58 PM
If you have been exposed to diesel fumes while working for the railroad, you are covered by the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA), a 100 year-old federal law that protects workers and their families.  This law requires railroads to provide workers with a reasonably safe place to work and, in the event of negligent conduct or violation of safety laws, money damages for railroad workers.  If you have experienced headaches, nausea, light-headedness, neurological symptoms, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, asthma, COPD, or lung cancer, please call us toll free at 1-877-ALL-FELA or email us at info@allfela.com for a free consultation.
