Benzene

Benzene is dangerous chemical that is listed as a known carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  Its use has been regulated by OSHA for decades.

Workers across the country continue to be exposed to benzene, leading to harmful and deadly effects, including cancer.  Work in refineries, chemical facilities, rubber/tire facilities, and other plants can expose people to deadly amounts of benzene.  These workers are either at the facility as a contactor or working directly for the owner of the facility.   Benzene exposure can also occur through a variety of maritime and railroad occupational activities.  Finally, benzene exposure can occur through various products used during vehicle repair, painting, paper/printing, and a variety of other work activities, depending on the amount and length of exposure.

We litigate and try cases across the United States for workers who have been diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukaemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)/myelodysplasia as a result of exposure to benzene. Please contact us immediately for a free consultation on how we may serve you and your family during this difficult time.
