Benzene

Benzene is a chemical that is often used to manufacture rubber, plastics, lubricants, paints, synthetics, resins, and other products. Benzene is also present in cigarette smoke and petroleum. In nature, benzene is released into the environment through volcanic eruptions and forest fires. Despite its usefulness in industry, cancer has been found in people who had lengthy exposures to benzene. Benzene affects the immune system and the body’s blood-forming organs. Severe anemia and life-threatening cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma have been linked to benzene.

Our lawyers recognize that people who have been afflicted by benzene poisoning can have major health and financial problems as a result. People can be exposed to benzene when it is released into the air or when it seeps into the groundwater supply and surrounding soil. While natural sources produce some of the benzene in the air, human activities are responsible for most of the benzene in the environment. Fumes from gasoline, furniture polish, and tobacco smoke all contain benzene as do other products. Everyone is exposed to some benzene, but the people most at risk for developing benzene-related illnesses are those who live or work at or near a manufacturing facility that uses benzene. Benzene can enter the body through inhalation, skin absorption, or consumption of tainted food or water. Our lawyers are experienced in benzene litigation and can help you receive compensation for your pain and suffering.

Even short-term exposure to benzene can be dangerous if the person is in contact with high levels of the chemical. Dizziness, confusion, immune system depression, anemia, and even death can occur with exposure to high concentrations of benzene. Long-term exposure can lead to various cancers.
