Benzene is widely used in a number of industries and products, yet many people remain unaware of the toxic danger of this chemical substance.
Exposure to products containing benzene, whether through inhalation or skin absorption, can cause life-threatening diseases including Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), lymphomas and aplastic Anemia. Some of these diseases do not manifest themselves until several years after exposure to benzene.
Also, many people who are diagnosed with AML or MDS may not realize there can be a connection to past toxic exposure, particularly to benzene. If a person has been diagnosed with one of these cancers or another severe injury, and has a past history of chronic benzene exposure, they may have a claim.

Due to certain statute of limitations for bringing a claim of this nature it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible if you believe your condition is a result of benzene exposure. If you or a loved one was exposed to benzene and was diagnosed with one of the forms of leukemia or lymphoma listed above, please contact a Beasley Allen attorney for a complimentary, no-cost consultation to learn your legal rights.
