Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia






Privacy protected. All information held in the strictest confidence.
Acute lymphocytic leukemia is a malignant form of cancer that develops in the white blood cells, or lymphocytes. Acute lymphocyctic leukemia is rare but has been the result of exposure to solvents containing benzene. The lymphocytes that are created from special stem cells can grow into different types of blood cells to perform specialized immune system functions, but when acute lymphocytic leukemia is present white blood cells do not grow properly.

Although some experts question the relationship of benzene to acute lymphocyctic leukemia, there is a decent amount of information showing that benzene can in fact result in acute lymphocytic leukemia. It has been shown that this type of leukemia accounts for about 10% of all benzene induced leukemia. Without treatment acute lymphocytic leukemia quickly progresses to a life-threatening condition.

Contacting our experienced and proven benzene attorneys can allow you to collect a large compensation for the potentially fatal health conditions that benzene is known to cause.
