Asbestos is known to be a harmful substance. Exposure to asbestos can cause several very serious physical conditions that can affect the rest of a person’s life (e.g., mesothelioma, asbestosis). Individuals suffering from an asbestos-related condition may be entitled to financial compensation to help cover the costs resulting from their condition.

If believe you may have been exposed to asbestos at your workplace and suffered an asbestos related injury, please contact us to discuss how we may be able to help.


Benzene is a clear, colorless aromatic liquid that is highly flammable, carcinogenic and is used in many industries. Benzene is widely used in the United States to make other chemicals which are used to make plastics, resins, and nylon and synthetic fibers. It was also used as a degreasing agent, a cleaner for watch springs, and a coffee decaffeinator.  Benzene is still instrumental in the production of plastics, nylon, adhesives, and other products. It is also occasionally used in laboratory applications.  Oil workers, gas station attendants, factory workers, watchmakers are some other jobs that may be susceptible to exposure to benzene or benzene exposure. Benzene is also used to make some types of rubbers, lubricants, dyes, detergents, drugs, and pesticides. Benzene is also a natural part of crude oil, gasoline, and cigarette smoke.
