Benzene Exposure Settlement

A family that lived next to a business that sold gas on consignment discovered that the store’s underground gas tank had a significant, long-standing leak. The leaking gas contaminated the soil and water in the area of the family’s residence with benzene.

While various members of the family suffered ailments from the benzene exposure, the family’s six-year-old daughter developed leukemia.

The arguments in the case were over pollution exclusion and, to some extent, causation.

While the grocery store owners tried to deny causing the illness through their negligence, the firm secured a $1,935,000 settlement.
