Last updated on August 10, 2023

If you live near Houston’s Englewood Train Yard in the 5th ward of Houston, TX or within the surrounding area, you might have suffered exposure to a toxic chemical called creosote – and you might not even realize it.

Mack Injury Attorneys is currently representing clients in Texas who are suing Union Pacific Railroad for negligently exposing them to toxic contamination. Do you live near the Union Pacific Englewood Yard located in the Kashmere Gardens neighborhood in Houston, TX? You might have a case.

What Are The Symptoms Of Creosote Exposure?

There are several signs you should watch out for that could indicate that you came into contact with creosote. These include:

  • Lung irritation
  • Blistering, peeling, or reddening of the skin
  • Damage to the eyes
  • Increased sensitivity to sunlight
  • Burning in the mouth and throat
  • Stomach pains
  • Bad skin rash
  • Eye burns
  • Convulsions
  • Kidney or liver problems
  • Unconsciousness

Tragically, these symptoms often indicate much more severe conditions. Creosote has also been linked to certain types of cancers.

Do I Have A Case Against Union Pacific?

A successful lawsuit depends on proving that:

  • You live near the exposure site
  • Exposure to the chemicals caused you harm
  • As a result, you have damages

Damages can include medical bills, physical therapy, prescriptions, missed work and loss of earning potential. You will need to get in touch with a toxic tort attorney who can gather evidence through your medical records and help you determine whether you have grounds to sue Union Pacific.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

The amount of compensation you receive, if any, depends on your damages. Some recent cases resulted in significant compensation for the individuals and families who suffered exposure. For example, a Union Pacific employee who developed acute myeloid leukemia at just age 51 received more than $7.5 million. With that said, every claim is different. The best way to get a more accurate assessment of your case is to contact an attorney with our law firm.
