Ethylene oxide is a gas commonly used in the manufacture of other chemical compounds that are produced by chemical plants. But ethylene oxide is acknowledged as a known human carcinogen (cancer-causing compound or substance) in high concentrations and over long periods of exposure. The chemical has been linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, leukemia, multiple myeloma, and breast cancer and other serious physical injuries.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer or a blood-related disorder after living near or working with ethylene oxide, you may have a case for compensation. Call Alex R. Hernandez Jr. PLLC today 361-552-3100 (Port Lavaca/Seadrift) 361-454-1000 (Corpus Christi/Ingleside)
