Representing Benzene-exposed Workers Who are Diagnosed With AML Leukemia or MDS Years Later
In a rush? You can use our Quick Contact Form to tell us the basic information about your case.
Benzene-exposed workers may develop benzene-related diseases include acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Workers and their families need to know that the diagnosis of AML or MDL will probably be made many years after the last exposure to benzene. This is due to the “latency period”, or lag time, between the work with or around benzene on the job and the development of AML or MDS.
Benzene is among the top 20 chemicals for production volume and can be found in many different industries. Exposure to benzene is more likely for particular types of workers within certain industries. Benzene can be a colorless liquid with a sweet odor, or a colorless gas. It occurs naturally but is also synthetically produced.
