Florida man formerly employed as a firefighter in Indiana and St. Louis for Penn Central Railroad alleges he developed cancer because of exposure to toxic agents.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by Penn Central Railroad from 1968 to 1970. He alleges that as a result of his exposure to polychlorinated biphenyl compounds (PBCs) during his employment with Penn Central, he developed bladder cancer.
The plaintiff holds American Premier Underwriters Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to warn plaintiff of the life and health-threatening
dangers of PCBs and failed to implement policies and procedures to eliminate or reduce his exposure to it.
