Benzene-Exposed Workers Diagnosed with Benzene-Related Cancers and Diseases
In a rush? You can use our Quick Contact Form to tell us the basic information about your case.
It is important that workers and their families understand that a medical diagnosis of AML leukemia or MDS will probably be made many years after one’s last exposure to benzene. This is due to the “latency period”, or lag time, between the person’s benzene exposures while working with or around benzene and their eventual later development of AML leukemia or MDS.
Generally speaking, benzene was used on the job or in the workplace for many different industries. However, significant levels of benzene exposure were more likely for particular types of workers within certain industries. For purposes of determining those possible past benzene exposures, one should keep in mind that benzene can be a colorless liquid with a sweet odor, or a colorless gas.
We encourage you to submit a Benzene Case Review – it is free, confidential, and there is no obligation. Or, if you prefer, call 800-426-9535 to speak with attorney Tom Lamb about a possible benzene case. Either way, you will get Mr. Lamb’s impressions — not an intake person, a paralegal, or some other lawyer — about your case based on his many years of experience.
