Rail Workers Sue CSX for Asbestos Exposure

Four former CSX employees in Tampa, Florida have filed a lawsuit alleging the company is responsible for the asbestos-related lung cancer they have developed.


The lawsuit was filed by four men who say that over the past forty years they were never warned by CSX about the health risks associated with long term asbestos exposure. Jerry B. Brown, James R. givens, James Toombs, and William F. Triner were all diagnosed with asbestos related lung cancer between 2007 and 2009. 


Court documents show that each of the men, though working different positions at the transportation company, were required during the course of their duties to work in areas where they were "heavily exposed" to asbestos. The lawsuit claims that the company failed to provide the men with respirators or any other form of protective gear.


Asbestos exposure has been linked to mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive cancer that affects the lungs as well as other tissues in the chest and abdominal cavities. 


 If you or someone you love has been developed mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease after being exposed to asbestos on the job, contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-781-3955.
