Benzene Lawsuits

Benzene is a chemical found in many consumer products and gasoline. Exposure to benzene occurs primarily through inhalation, but may also result from contact with the skin. Individuals can come into contact with benzene in both the workplace and the general environment. Studies have shown that individuals who are exposed to high levels of benzene have an increased risk of cancer, particularly leukemia and blood-related cancers.

What is Benzene?

Benzene is a colorless, highly flammable chemical. It is among the top 20 chemicals used in the United States by volume. Benzene is widely used in the production of other chemicals for plastics, lubricants, rubbers, dyes, detergents, drugs and pesticides, and is also found in crude oil and gasoline.

What is Happening with Benzene?

Benzene is listed as a known carcinogen by numerous science and health agencies including the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the National Toxicology program (as part of the National Institute of Health), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Studies have found increased rates of leukemia and other blood cancers in individuals exposed to high levels of benzene. The National Cancer Institute has stated that there may be no safe level of exposure to benzene.

Individuals and workers with prolonged exposure to benzene have filed lawsuits against industrial employers and the manufacturers of products that contain excessive levels of benzene. Exposure to benzene is linked to industrial processes, such as disposal of contaminated products, petroleum spills, factory output, burning fuel, and gasoline and vehicle emissions. Exposure can also occur by breathing contaminated air from cigarette smoke or drinking water from polluted underground storage tanks. The production of consumer goods, including rubber and chemicals, also contributes to the release of large quantities of benzene into the environment. Individuals who work in certain industries with a high degrees of benzene exposure or who reside in close proximity to these workplaces (such as gas stations and factories) have an elevated risk of serious health conditions, including cancer.
