Benzene Compensation

Did You Know?

Benzene related diseases may develop as late as 29 years after exposure.

No amount of money can fully compensate you or a family member who suffers from a Benzene related disease. These diseases are painful and debilitating and may result in premature death. The loss of a loved one and the drain on family resources and emotions carry an immeasurable price. Many of these Benzene victims or their families are filing lawsuits against companies that exposed them to Benzene to cover medical expenses and pain and suffering. 

The EPA estimates that half of the entire U.S. population has been exposed to the dangerous chemical.

Some Previous Benzene Cases Have Settled For:

  • 6.6 million Verdict on behalf of a 68-year-old man who died from leukemia associated with his Benzene exposure at multiple locations, including Mobil.
  • $6.6 million verdict in a Benzene exposure case brought on behalf of the surviving family members of a petrochemical worker
  • $4.3 million Benzene settlement resulting from the diagnosis and death of four leukemia stricken petrochemical workers.
