An Occupational Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner Contracts MDS

He started his own carpet and upholstery cleaning business thirty years ago. Day in and day out, he used solvents and cleaners that contained the cancer causing chemical called benzene. The solvents and cleaner containers didn’t say the products contained benzene, so he didn’t know that every day he worked with these products he breathed in excessive levels of benzene.

 

One day, he began feeling overly tired and visited a doctor. After some blood tests, he was sent to cancer doctors who diagnosed him with myelodysplastic syndromes, also known as MDS. Over time his MDS became acute myeloid leukemia, also known as AML. His disease progressed in a way that doctors recommended a stem cell transplant. Unfortunately, his benzene related MDS/AML took his life.

 

Before he died, the occupational carpet and upholstery cleaner contacted our law firm and decided to file a lawsuit against the solvent and cleaner manufacturers for their negligence in producing products without adequately informing users like him of the dangers posed by the ingredients. Before trial, our legal team negotiated a confidential settlement on his family’s behalf.
