Benzene Exposure & High Risk of Leukemia

How much benzene someone is exposed to in combination with the amount of time they are exposed to the chemical determines the level of damage caused. People working with benzene for manufacturing products are at particularly high risk, since they are more likely to experience long-term exposure to the chemical at high levels. Long-term is considered a period of 12 months or more in most cases.

Because of the risks involved in working with benzene, the EPA has set up very strict rules and regulations that must be followed by employers to protect everyone when working with benzene.

You should reach out to Handler, Henning & Rosenberg, LLP if you or someone you love has been exposed to high levels of benzene in their workplace and developed leukemia, or other medical complications.

Dangers of Long-Term Benzene Exposure

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and the EPA have all agreed that benzene is a known carcinogen and the latter two agree that it is specifically carcinogenic to humans. When an individual is exposed to benzene through the air they breathe, it may lead to leukemia. Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is the most common condition caused by benzene exposure. The cancer occurs in the blood-forming organs.

Common side effects from long-term exposure include:

  • Rapid heart rate
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Drowsiness
  • Unconsciousness
  • Vomiting
  • Convulsions

Exposure can also lead to other serious health conditions, such as liver damage, nerve damage, irregular menstrual periods, anemia, and more. If you or a member of your family has been exposed to high levels of benzene and experienced any of the side effects listed above, please contact your doctor. Once you have received medical attention, you need to contact a benzene exposure lawyer in Pennsylvania.
