Railroad COPD Lawyer

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, commonly known as COPD, is a lung disease that makes it difficult to breathe and is caused by damage to the lungs over the years. COPD develops slowly over time, and sometimes symptoms do not arise until years after exposure. COPD is a serious disease that can lead to disability or death. Currently, there is no cure for COPD. However, those with COPD can often relieve symptoms by not smoking and taking prescribed medication. Unfortunately, it is far from uncommon for railroad workers to develop COPD, and if you are one of them, there is a very strong chance that you will qualify for financial compensation, and our legal team is here to help you get it. Please do not hesitate to contact a dedicated railroad COPD lawyer from Doran & Murphy for assistance today.

Contracted COPD as a Railroad Worker? Doran & Murphy is On Your Side.

Railroad workers are frequently subjected to a wide range of dangerous conditions, many of which can lead to long-term illnesses or even death.

Causes of COPD

COPD can be caused by long-term exposure to workplace dust and chemical fumes, including diesel fumes and diesel exhaust. Railroad workers often breathe in diesel exhaust when riding on locomotives and when working in the railroad yard near idling or running locomotives. Additionally, cigarette smoking or exposure to smoke may cause or exacerbate COPD symptoms. People with COPD may suffer from shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing, weight loss, and difficulty sleeping.
