Chemical Exposure

Chemical Exposure for Railroad Workers

Pittsburgh Railroad Lawyers Helping Workers Exposed to Harmful Chemicals

Working on the railroads is difficult and demanding, but like any occupation, you should expect to have the tools, the safety equipment, and the resources to be safe. Exposure to harmful substances or chemicals can lead to serious injury, permanent disability or, in the worst cases, the tragic loss of a loved one.

You should understand that if you suffer an injury on the job from a chemical exposure or burn, as a worker in the railroad industry, specific laws and regulations protect your right to recover fair compensation.

Working with clients across the nation, the attorneys at the law office of Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., have a proven reputation based on decades of success at helping people recover the compensation and benefits they are owed.

A Reputation of Successful Representation

Our Pittsburgh railroad lawyers have helped hundreds of railroaders, mechanics, engineers, and professionals protect themselves and their families from the crushing debt that can come with illness, injury or disability. A harmful chemical exposure or burn can leave a person out of work facing long-term health care needs.

Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., helps eligible workers access payments under the Federal Employer's Liability Act (FELA) or Railroad Retirement Board benefits while exploring all avenues for financial recovery.

We work with families and individuals who have been disabled or disfigured because of:

  • Fumes
  • Dangerous cleaning solvents and solutions
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Improper safety equipment and practices
  • Employer negligence
