Occupations Affected by Benzene

Texas Benzene Injury Attorneys

Benzene exposure dangers have been well known to government agencies and industrial corporations for many decades. Benzene is a known carcinogen that occurs in nature in small amounts, but its use and occurrence in a range of industries exposes workers to levels that have proven extremely hazardous.

Our Beaumont, Texas-based, nationally known toxic torts and personal injury lawyers have taken legal action for many victims of benzene exposure, and we have in-depth knowledge of the factors in these cases. The health impact of benzene products has been severe, and holding a company responsible calls for attorneys with strong, relevant experience proving that specific types of chemical exposure cause disease.

We are here to assess your legal options thoroughly as a victim or surviving family member of a worker struck by leukemia, aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), lymphoma, or multiple myeloma you have any reason to suspect may be benzene-related.

Did You Work in an Industry Known for Benzene Exposure Risk?

Many governmental and industry authorities have acknowledged and stated that occupations affected by benzene include:

  • Workers engaged in many aspects of petroleum and gasoline refining, as well as barge workers, pipefitters, tankermen, drum fillers, and shipping and receiving personnel in the petrochemical industry
  • Mechanics, machinists, and other workers in a variety of general industrial occupations
  • Chemists, laboratory technicians, chemical workers and instrument men
  • Chemical truck and tank truck drivers
  • Rubber workers, as well as workers in the printing industry, dry cleaning industry, and others exposed to benzene in some form, including gasoline, crude oil, and benzene-containing chemicals such as benzol, naphtha, toluene, xylene, reformate, raffinate, and many solvents and paint thinners
