Understanding Benzene and Exposure

Benzene is a naturally occurring, colourless liquid with a sweet smell. Despite its common presence, prolonged exposure can lead to a range of harmful health effects, including various types of cancer. This volatile organic compound is generally found in gasoline, rubber, dyes, detergents, drugs, and pesticides. It’s also a significant component in the production of plastics and synthetic fibres.

Types of Cancers Related to Benzene

Long-term exposure to benzene has been linked to several types of cancer, including leukemia and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). It’s also associated with conditions like aplastic anaemia and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).

Examples include car accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents, toxic exposures and more.

    The value of a personal injury case can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the severity of the injury, the amount of medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
