National Benzene Exposure Lawyers

The Strength of Experience on Your Side

Benzene exposure is fairly common in the United States, as benzene is among the 20 most-produced chemicals in the nation. It is produced by human bodies, volcanoes, and forest fires, as well as manufactured artificially (tobacco smoke, gasoline, and pesticides).

Short-term exposure can lead to minor but inconvenient symptoms, but long-term exposure can lead to severe leukemia or anemia.

If you are suffering from leukemia, investigating your exposure to benzene may help you receive the resources you need for medical treatment and long-term care. At the law firm of Bailey Peavy Bailey Cowan Heckaman, we help clients get answers about their illness and fight for the compensation they deserve. If benzene exposure was the source of your illness (or the wrongful death of a loved one), we can build a case that presents the facts of your story honestly and aggressively.

How Long-Term Benzene Exposure Causes Cancer

The Department of Health and Human Services recently determined that benzene is a major carcinogen. Exposure over the course of a year or more causes benzene levels to rise in the blood, allowing it to affect bone marrow and decrease the level of red blood cells. After causing anemia, it can harm the immune system, lowering the amount of white blood cells and leaving people open to infection.

Benzene’s effect on bone marrow eventually leads to abnormal cell growth, causing leukemia (cancer of blood-producing tissue). If you worked in an auto shop, in agriculture spraying pesticide, or in an industry handling crude oil, you may be at a higher risk for benzene-related health risks.
