According to court documents, on December 26th, 2012, the estate of a man filed a lawsuit in Madison County Circuit Court (Case no. 12-L-2083) alleging he suffered acute myelogenous leukemia and died as a result of his exposure to benzene. Benzene is a petroleum product, originally manufactured from coal tar that is used as a component in multiple industrial and consumer products.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiff blames area refineries for her son’s fatal exposure to benzene. AttorneyOne will provide all latest information on potential Benzene Recall lawsuits.

In the Report on Carcinogens, Twelfth Edition (2011) by the National Toxicology Program, it is mentioned that “case reports and case series have reported leukemia (mostly acute myelogenous leukemia) in individuals exposed to benzene. The strongest epidemiological evidence that benzene causes cancer is from several cohort studies in various industries and geographical locations, which found that occupational exposure to benzene increased the risk of mortality from leukemia.”
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), products containing 5% or more by weight of benzene are considered hazardous and require special labeling.
