 Benzene is a chemical carcinogen that is used in manufacturing and found in things such as gas, oil, cigarette smoke, and car emissions.  It is a highly flammable, sweet smelling, colorless liquid that evaporates and dissolves quickly.  Exposure to this chemical at high levels is a known cause of cancer and other health problems.  Many people have been exposed to high levels of benzene at their workplace or home without even realizing it.  Government regulations have been put into place to make sure that high levels of benzene are not present in the workplace, and to manage situations involving spills or leakage of the chemical.  However, there are still a number of ways that people might be exposed to Benzene.  These include environmental exposure, consumer exposure, and occupational exposure. 

Environmental exposure occurs when benzene contaminates the air and the water supply as a result of leaks of hazardous waste.  Consumer exposure occurs because some household products such as glue, detergent, paint thinner, and cleaning products may also contain benzene.  Trace amount of benzene have even been found in some sodas.  Also, benzene is commonly used in the manufacture of plastic, nylon, detergent, pesticides, adhesives, kerosene, ink, dyes, resins, lubricants, rubber, asphalt, and other chemicals.  Any products made out of these substances might contain benzene.  Occupational exposure occurs when workers in the oil and gas industry, plastic industry, steel industry, and other types of industry are at risk for exposure to high levels of benzene.

Benzene exposure can lead to a number of diseases including multiple forms of leukemia, anemia, metaplasia, myeloma, and other blood cancers.  Symptoms of benzene exposure through breathing in the chemical or ingesting the chemical include: headaches, rapid or irregular heart rate, dizziness, drowsiness, tremors or convulsions, and vomiting.  Direct exposure to benzene can cause burning and scarring.

If you believe that you are ill as a result of exposure to Benzene, it is important that you contact an attorney who is experienced in handling litigation involving this deadly chemical.  The attorneys and staff at Cueria Law Firm, L.L.C., have the experience you need to defend your rights when it comes to compensation for injuries you have suffered because of the negligent use of this chemical carcinogen.
