PFAS exposure at Dover Air Force Base

This military base is under the operational control of Air Mobility Command and is located 2 miles southeast of Dover, Delaware. It was established in 1941. In 2006, a 735,000-pound C-5 military aircraft that was going to Kuwait crashed down nearby Dover Air Force Base.

Firefighters used aqueous film-forming foam, also known as AFFF, to extinguish the fire, which releases PFAS into the air, a dangerous group of chemicals with terrible effects on human health. The area where AFFF was applied is now one of the most contaminated sites in the United States.

Numerous military personnel and their family members drank contaminated water while stationed at Dover Air Force Base, as the toxic agents infiltrated the water system.

If you developed a disease as a result of drinking tainted water at Dover Air Force Base, you may be eligible for compensation.

What diseases can you develop after drinking tainted water at Dover Air Force Base?

Exposure to PFAS from drinking water can lead to the development of multiple serious, even life-threatening diseases. However, only the most severe qualify you for compensation, as there is a definitive causal relation between these diseases and exposure to PFAS. The following are the diseases that make you eligible for filing a claim to recover the compensation you deserve for your injury:

If you lived on the Dover Air Force Base for at least one cumulative year, whether as a military member or as a family member of one, and developed one of the diseases above, we strongly encourage you to file a claim with the assistance of a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure. Because these diseases tend to occur several years after exposure to PFAS, it is crucial to monitor your health and seek medical attention as soon as you notice a new onset of symptoms. Seeking a second opinion from a medical specialist is also a good idea, as the diseases that stem from exposure to PFOS are often misdiagnosed. A correct and accurate diagnosis will make you eligible for recovering the financial compensation you are entitled to for your physical and emotional suffering.
