Know Your Legal Rights about Benzene!

Know Your Legal Rights

If you or someone you know has a Benzene-related disease, you owe it to yourself to make sure that your rights are protected. Your rights vary depending on many factors such as your residence, where you were exposed to asbestos, and the location of the responsible asbestos companies. Each state has its own laws and governs the law differently. Each state also has its own deadlines for allowing victims of Benzene related diseases to file lawsuits, called statutes of limitation and statutes of repose.

More than three million workers are potentially exposed to Benzene every year. The use of Benzene as a solvent has been banned in the US for more than 20 years, but unfortunately, there is still benzene in most petroleum solvents. Workers may inhale vapors from the solvent or absorb vapors through their skin.

Your first concern is to file within the statutory deadlines.

Benzene Legal Rights – Wrongful Death

If you are the executor of the estate of a person who has died from a benzene-related disease, you may be eligible to file a claim but the claim must be within a short time of death.

Because of the statute of limitation issues, you should contact our specialists as soon as possible regarding your eligibility.

The law also says that if you are a close family member of a person who died of a Benzene related disease, you may also have the right to seek compensation for your loss. This right is called a "wrongful death" suit. The laws of different states vary as to which family members have the legal right to recover for the wrongful death of a family member. We can help decide which state is best for your case, depending upon your individual situation.

Benzene Legal Rights – Statute of Limitations

While you have the right to sue if you have, or a family member has for a Benzene-related disease, there is a time frame during which you must file your case. This statute of limitations varies from state to state, but if you wait too long, you will be barred from taking legal action. If you are interested in filing a case, it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.
