Pollutants > Benzene

For every victim of leukemia and their family, the tragedy is increased because the evidence clearly demonstrates that the benzene industry knew that their products killed people. Because of the benzene industry's actions, thousands of people across the country have been afflicted with leukemia.

Clients often remark that they worked with or were exposed to benzene products 20, 30 or even 40 years ago. We understand this and have compiled a product identification book which is a picture book of hundreds of benzene product from the 1930s through the 1970s. Even though it has been years since the client worked with the product, almost everybody recalls the products they worked with on a day to day basis once shown a picture.

If the leukemia client is deceased the work history and product exposure can be determined from social security records and from coworker interviews. However, the best source of evidence is product identification done by the person who was directly exposed to the benzene products.
