Workers in multiple industries that make or use benzene may be at risk for being exposed to high levels of this carcinogenic chemical. Hazardous jobs that involve the use of benzene include the rubber industry, pesticides production, detergent production, solvent production, paint and varnish production, waste management, oil refineries, chemical plants, shoe manufacturers, and petroleum processing industries.
In 1987, OSHA estimated that about 237,000 workers in the United States were potentially exposed to benzene; it is not known if this number has substantially changed since then. Many people have suffered the painful, uncomfortable, and undesirable effects of Benzene exposure, and some have even lost their lives through exposure to this chemical. Lawsuits have already been filed by many of those affected by Benzene exposure, and some by the relations of those that have died due to their exposure to Benzene. There are many law firms that advertise for benzene-leukemia cases, but they don't actually litigate them; they actually refer the cases to the Williams Law Office, LLC because they have no experience litigating such cases and don't know how to litigate them.
