Four former railroad workers have filed suit against five railroad corporations alleging that unhealthy and unsafe working conditions caused them to develop asbestosis and respiratory illness form second-hand smoke damage. As a result of their injuries, the men suffer great pain and disability, mental anguish and lost income. In the suits, the plaintiffs allege that the railroad corporations also violated the Locomotive Boiler Inspection Act and the Federal Employers Liability Act by failing to provide them with a safe place to work and exposing them to asbestos and hazardous work practices.
