Hughes Law Offices serves individuals diagnosed with lymphatic cancers like acute myeloid leukemia (AML) as a result of benzene exposures. Benzene is a known cause of leukemia and we bring claims against the manufacturers, landowners and employers responsible for negligently exposing individuals to benzene. People from all walks of life suffer benzene exposures.
- Laboratory workers, printers, railroad workers, painters and firefighters have all likely endured benzene exposures.
- Hobbyists using paint thinners, degreasers or glues around the house can suffer benzene exposures.
- Farmers applying pesticides and herbicides are at great risk for benzene exposures.
The fact is, benzene is all around us. Benzene is a natural part of crude oil and can be found in gasoline and diesel fuel. Even today, benzene ranks in the top 20 chemicals for production volume. It is used to make plastics, nylon, resins and other synthetic products. Benzene is also used in the production of pesticides, rubbers, drugs, dyes, inks, detergents, herbicides and lubricants. Workers involved in the manufacture of those products and all of those who work downstream with the products can be at risk.
