Pennsylvania Toxic Exposure Lawyers
Benzene is a sweet-smelling, colorless chemical that is used in the manufacture of numerous products. For instance, benzene is used in the oil refining process. Benzene is also used in the manufacture of plastics, nylon, detergents and other products. People who work in a variety of different environments may have been exposed to harmful levels of this product, including:
- Oil refineries
- Steel mills
- Printing presses
- Chemical plants
Regular and sustained exposure to benzene can lead to acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and other forms of leukemia. Benzene exposure can also lead to myelodysplastic syndrome, anemia and a number of other diseases affecting the blood. In many cases, the companies that use benzene in the manufacture of their products fail to take steps to adequately protect their workers. If you or someone you love has leukemia or another blood disease, and you have reason to believe that benzene exposure caused this disease, it is important to discuss your case with a lawyer.
