Lymphomas/Hodgkin’s Disease

FELA Claims for Lymphomas and Hodgkin's Disease

Railroad Injury Attorney

Lymphoma is normally treated through radiation therapy or chemotherapy which can take a severe toll on the patient. It is costly and usually only successful in achieving a remission of the disease rather than a cure. Patients may have to receive multiple treatments with recurrences of the cancer. It originates in the lymphatic system, which is part of the body's immune system, and in advanced stages it will spread throughout the lymph nodes and into other organs. Symptoms include night sweats, unexplained weight loss and enlargement of the lymph nodes, such as in the arm pits, abdomen and groin.

A successful FELA lawsuit is not limited in the amount the jury may award in damages unlike a normal workers' compensation claim. While railroad workers are eligible to receive more generous compensation than other workers, they also have the challenge of proving that the occupational cancer was caused or contributed to by the employer's negligence. It is possible that you received exposure to welding fumes, benzene exposure or chemical solvent exposure, or were subjected to some other source of carcinogens in your career as a railroader.
