Benzene

Benzene poses the greatest risk to workers using petroleum solvents containing benzene. Although using benzene in the U.S. as a solvent has been banned for many years now, workers using solvents have continued benzene exposure because it is still present in some degree in most petroleum solvents. Workers can develop benzene poisoning through inhalation of the vapors evaporating from the solvent and by absorbing it through their skin by handling materials soaked with the solvents.

The consequences of benzene exposure can be deadly. Benzene and leukemia are often linked. Benzene poisoning has been shown to cause rare forms of leukemia, including acute myelogenous leukemia, acute lympohcytic leukemia, and chronic myelogenous leukemia.

You may be at risk for benzene exposure if you currently work, or have worked, in the industries that involve newspaper press, paint, chemicals, refinery work, shoe and leather production, paper and pulp manufacturing, gasoline distribution, or rubber and pesticides.

Brent Coon & Associates provides legal assistance and guidance for people who've suffered from the ill effects of benzene and leukemia. If you or a loved one has been experienced benzene poisoning because of benzene exposure, contact one of our attorneys at Brent Coon & Associates for assistance. Protecting your legal rights and holding negligent parties responsible is our #1 goal.
