Acute Myelogenous Leukemia has been linked with benzene exposure. Workers who were exposed to benzene and who have been diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia may be able to recover damages against manufacturers of benzene products.

These lawsuits seek justice on behalf of people who were trying to do their jobs and were unknowingly exposed to benzene, a known cancer causing substance. The manufacturers of benzene containing products need to be held accountable for their actions. People who developed acute myelogenous leukemia from benzene exposure deserve compensation.

Thousands of people suffering from acute myelogenous leukemia may be entitled to significant monetary compensation for damages from manufacturers of benzene containing products. Acute myelogenous leukemia, or AML, is a potentially deadly cancer that has been linked to benzene exposure. Benzene is a well known carcinogen and is found in many products.

High levels of benzene exposure are often found in chemical plant workers, industrial plant workers using solvents, painters, paper and pulp workers, pipe fitters, refinery workers, synthetic rubber production workers, and tire plant workers, just to name a few. Workers employed in these industries seem to be at the highest risk of developing leukemia from benzene exposure. Other industries where workers are at high risk from benzene exposure include adhesive production, pesticide manufacturing, new paper press workers, printers, and gasoline station workers.

Two lawsuits were recently filed in King County Superior Court against manufacturers of benzene containing products on behalf of two Boeing workers who contracted acute myelogenous leukemia as a result benzene exposure on the job. The lawsuits were filed jointly by the Texas law firm Schmidt and Clark and the Seattle, Washington personal injury law firm Paglialunga & Harris, PS. The lawsuits are filed under cause numbers 05-2-37353-9 KNT and 06-2-10994-5 KNT.

The benzene lawsuits allege that the manufacturers of the benzene containing products failed to warn consumers about the serious health risks associated with using their products. Benzene leukemia lawsuits frequently seek unspecified damages, but could seek damages in the millions of dollars for pain and suffering and punitive damages.

According to Seattle lawyer Charles Paglialunga, who is investigating benzene leukemia lawsuits nationwide, "These lawsuits seek justice on behalf of people who were trying to do their jobs and were unknowingly exposed to benzene, a known cancer causing substance. The manufacturers of benzene containing products need to be held accountable for their actions. People who developed acute myelogenous leukemia from benzene exposure deserve compensation."
