Benzene Litigation

Benzene litigation is the primary practice area of the Metzger Law Group.  The Metzger Law Group has represented several hundred workers with blood diseases and cancers caused by exposure to benzene.

Benzene causes many cancers of the blood, including various types of leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.  Benzene also causes various blood diseases, including myelodysplastic syndrome, aplastic anemia, myelofibrosis, and various cytopenias.

Many different workers are exposed to benzene, including rubber workers, refinery workers, chemical plant workers, chemical distribution workers, tanker truck drivers, seamen, gasoline station attendants, fuel tank workers, painters, printers, mechanics, chemists, laboratory workers, aircraft workers, electronics workers, shoe and leather workers, farmers, carpenters, furniture workers, metal workers, janitorial workers, hazardous waste workers, etc.
