Benzene, Diesel Fuel, Railroad, Esophageal Cancer & Marquez is about a BNSF railroad worker (trackman and machine operator) that developed esophageal cancer from possible/alleged benzene, diesel exhaust and other toxic exposures.
A brief summary of the Benzene, Diesel Fuel, Railroad, Esophageal Cancer & Marquez scenario follows:
- Ms. Marquez states that BNSF’s predecessor railway employed Mr. Balerio as a trackman/machine operator from 1971 to 1980.
- Further, she alleges that during Mr. Balerio’s employment, he was exposed to “chemicals, solvents, diesel fuel/exhaust, benzene, heavy metals, creosote, manganese, and rock/mineral dust and fibers,” the combination of which caused his esophageal cancer.
- She contends that Mr. Balerio’s cancer was not caused by any one substance on any one day; instead, it was caused by the cumulative effect of the toxins.
- Finally, Ms. Marquez pleads that Mr. Balerio was exposed to these substances, because the railway negligently took or failed to take a variety of actions
- Plaintiffs claim damages under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (fela)
