Benzene Attorney | Romanucci & Blandin
Benzene is one of the most widely used organic chemical compounds that is used to manufacture metal, wood and textiles. Benzene evaporates when it is exposed to air, and it is colorless and flammable. Benzene exposure has been known to cause cancer, aplastic anemia, excessive bleeding and other illnesses. If you or a loved one has suffered from any illness that is the result of benzene exposure, RB Law’s proficient benzene attorneys will be able to help you understand what your legal options are.
Most people are exposed to benzene by inhaling air that has been contaminated. Most cases of benzene exposure occur in the workplace. There are certain businesses that are more prone to benzene exposure than others, including chemical plants, gasoline-related trades, oil refineries, shoe manufacturers and rubber factories. Benzene inhalation can also occur from cigarette smoking or secondhand smoke, or inhaling automobile exhaust fumes or emissions from some factories.
