San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 17, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Norvel Dorsey. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On Jan. 18th, 2012 Norvel Dorsey filed the lawsuit No. B-0191669 in Jefferson County District Court, Texas. Mr. Dorsey accuses several companies including DuPont De Nemours, Exxon Mobil Corp. and some of its subsidiaries, Foster Wheeler Energy Corp., Gulf Oil Corp., Texaco, U.S. Steel, Chevron U.S.A., and 4520 Corp. alleging that he developed leukemia from benzene exposure. According to the lawsuit, Dorsey worked as a pipefitter from 1960 until 1986 for various companies and during this time he was exposed to benzene in the workplace and through products made by the defendants. Mr. Dorsey claims in the lawsuit that benzene exposure led to the development of chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Over the past several years scientific research and a growing body of case reports associated exposure to benzene with the development of several fatal forms of cancer, leukemia and other conditions, including Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML), Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML), and other severe diseases.
