Benzene Chemical Exposure Attorney
Have you been injured by chemical exposure to Benzene?
What is Benzene and who is exposed?
Benzene is a chemical compound. Benzene is a colorless and flammable liquid that has a sweet smell. It is a widely-used industrial solvent and de-greaser, and is also used in the production of drugs, plastics, synthetic rubber, and dyes. Benzene is a natural constituent of crude oil and natural gas liquids.
Workers in various industries that make or use benzene may be at risk for being exposed to high levels of this cancer-causing chemical. Exposures can occur through inhalation, skin absorption, ingestion, and skin and/or eye contact.

What does benzene cause?
We represent persons who have been diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), which is often a precursor to the development of AML, among other diseases. AML is also known as acute myeloid leukemia. There are approximately 20,000 new cases each year in the United States, and there are an estimated 10,000 deaths annually from AML.
AML is caused by damage to the DNA of cells in bone marrow. Under normal circumstances, DNA is like a set of instructions for your cells, telling them how and when to grow and divide. Acute myelogenous leukemia can occur when damage to DNA causes blood cell abnormalities. These abnormal cells are unable to function properly, and they can build up and crowd out healthy cells. In many cases, damage to DNA is the result of exposure to cancer-causing chemicals, including benzene.
