Benzene in Sunscreen

Hematopoietic cancers like multiple myeloma, most leukemias, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, are sometimes the result of exposure to the cancer-causing chemical, benzene.   

Recent laboratory studies found significant amounts of benzene in several popular sunscreen products.  You can view the results of the study here:  https://www.valisure.com/wp-content/uploads/Valisure-Citizen-Petition-on-Benzene-in-Sunscreen-and-After-sun-Care-Products-v9.7.pdf.  Many of these products have been recalled by their manufacturers.

What Does It Cost To Find Out If I Have A Case?

Nothing. Call us toll free at (877) 704-7674 for a free case evaluation. You’ll speak to a lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, not a case screener. We will take the time to discuss your case and your legal options. If your case proceeds to the investigation and litigation phase, we cover those costs. We are paid for our time and repaid for case expenses only if you make a financial recovery in the form of a settlement or verdict.
