Benzene Exposures Illnesses

Numerous diseases have now been attributed to benzene exposures.

That said, tying the illness to the benzene exposures remains complicated. Hughes Law Offices will perform a thorough intake of each case to determine whether the illness at hand can be tied to past benzene exposures. We will consider all potential toxic exposures when determining whether your illness could be related to any one or more of those exposures.

    Via the review and study of epidemiological studies, the attorneys at Hughes Law Offices are familiar with benzene-illnesses, the products that contained benzene, the exposure routes for benzene and the affected occupations. For instance, in the case of a mechanic diagnosed with AML, we might focus on the parts washer and brake cleaners that he used regularly. For a pressman, we will analyze the benzene-containing inks and solvents in the press room. We prove your case by performing thorough intakes, co-worker interviews and literature review. We then consult with top experts, including industrial hygienists, toxicologists, occupational medicine doctors, oncologists and epidemiologists.
