Workplace Exposure Attorneys

Railroad workers in Houston face unique challenges and risks in their daily tasks. Workplace exposure is a critical aspect of railroad injury cases, encompassing various hazards that can impact the health and well-being of employees. These cases can be complex and challenging, as they often involve multiple parties and legal regulations. Our experienced Texas lawyers at Roven Camp gather all the evidence needed to advocate for your rights and help you secure fair compensation for your injuries. 

Common Types of Railroad Workplace Exposure

Chemical Exposure

Railroad workers often handle various chemicals, including those used for maintenance, cleaning, and other operational purposes. Exposure to hazardous substances can result in acute and chronic health issues, ranging from respiratory problems to skin conditions.

Asbestos Exposure

Given the historical use of asbestos in industries like oil refining, shipbuilding, and construction, Houston's railroad workers may face asbestos exposure risks. This exposure can lead to severe health conditions such as mesothelioma, highlighting the need for legal support in addressing asbestos-related cases.

Noise Exposure

The constant noise generated by trains, machinery, and other equipment in the railroad environment can contribute to hearing loss and other auditory issues among workers. Protective measures and legal advocacy become essential in addressing the consequences of prolonged noise exposure.

Ergonomic Hazards

Repetitive motions, awkward postures, and heavy lifting are common in railroad tasks, leading to musculoskeletal disorders. Identifying and addressing ergonomic hazards is crucial for preventing injuries and ensuring the well-being of railroad workers.

Know Your Rights: FELA and Your Railroad Job

If you're a railroad worker facing injuries or illness from workplace exposure, the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) is your key legal protection. This federal law ensures your employer is responsible for your safety and allows you to file negligence claims. Be mindful of the statute of limitations in Texas – injured parties typically have three years from the date of injury or discovery of an occupational illness to initiate legal proceedings. Taking prompt action is vital to safeguard your legal rights. Roven Camp is here to guide you through the process and protect your interests.

Seeking Compensation for Workplace Exposure

Workers affected by workplace exposure often incur substantial medical expenses for diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care. Pursuing compensation under FELA can help cover these costs and ensure access to necessary healthcare services.

Injuries from workplace exposure can lead to temporary or permanent disabilities, impacting an individual's ability to work and earn a living. Compensation sought through FELA may encompass lost wages and account for future earning capacity limitations.

Beyond tangible losses, FELA allows for the pursuit of damages for pain and suffering. This acknowledges the emotional and mental toll of workplace exposure-related injuries, providing a more comprehensive approach to compensation.
