Asbestos Exposure Lawyer Investigating ACF Industries Injury Claims

The Lyon Firm is investigating American Car & Foundry (ACF) asbestos claims for former employees in St. Louis and nationwide. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with asbestos-related cancer after working at ACF, contact an attorney to review your case.

Asbestos was regularly used in the manufacturing of railway and locomotive components into the 1970s. Because asbestos was used on railroads and train cars, railroad workers who handled installations and repairs were likely exposed to asbestos.

American Car & Foundry workers were widely exposed to asbestos in sealing cement and gaskets. Maintenance workers faced risk of asbestos exposure while maintaining and repairing rail cars and the plumbing, electrical and air-conditioning and heating systems in carriages.

Once asbestos fibers are inhaled, they can be lodged in the lungs and cause mesothelioma and other cancers. Occupational lung disease and health experts say there is no safe type of asbestos and no safe level of exposure.

Contact The Lyon Firm if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer following employment at ACF or another railroad company location infested with toxic building materials. Companies have a duty to protect their workers, and are liable for compensating them for injuries or illnesses sustained on their premises.
