On September 28, 2016, a jury in Madison County, Illinois entered a unanimous verdict in the amount of $7.5 million against Union Pacific Railroad Co. The case was filed by a railroad worker who developed acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) as a result of exposure to creosote on railroad ties he installed over the course of his career.
In addition to the obvious dangers associated with exposure to creosote, many railroad workers are exposed to benzene and other hazardous chemicals through diesel exhaust and leaking tank cars.
