PFAS Exposure at England Air Force Base

Originally known as Alexandria Army Air Base, the military base underwent a name change in 1955. It is located 170 miles northwest of New Orleans, Louisiana. Because military firefighters who were in training would regularly use AFFF, a very effective fire suppressant, contamination with PFAS, a group of dangerous chemicals that persist in the environment, was bound to occur. As a result, numerous veterans and their family members who were stationed on England Air Force Base came to struggle with terrible, often terminal diseases. To qualify for compensation, you must have stayed on the base for at least 1 year and have one of the eligible diagnoses. A lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases will help you file a claim with England Air Force Base so that you can recover the maximum compensation available.

The most severe case of environmental pollution concerns England Air Force Base, as the drinking water on the base contained 20.7 million parts per trillion of PFAS, overwhelmingly over the permissible limit. England Air Force Base was permanently closed in 1992 and the EPA is still striving to clean up the contaminated areas. As a result of the heavy pollution it has, the base is now a Superfund site. If you lived on the base, either alone or with your family, after 1970, when AFFF began increasing in popularity, you were inevitably exposed to PFAS, which makes you susceptible to develop a serious disease.

What Diseases Make You Eligible for Filing a Claim?

While drinking contaminated water can result in numerous health problems, people who lived on England Air Force Base for at least 1 year qualify for compensation only if they have one of the following diseases, as there is a definitive causal relation between these diagnoses and exposure to PFAS. It is worthy of note that suffering from any other cancer after your stay on the base will make you eligible for compensation.

If you notice a new onset of symptoms, please seek medical attention immediately, as you may have developed a serious disease. Furthermore, because these health conditions can be quite challenging to accurately diagnose, it is also a good idea to have a second opinion from another medical specialist. In the regrettable case that you have one of the diseases above, our attorneys will help you file a claim to recover the financial compensation you deserve from England Air Force Base. It is worthy of note that if you have any other cancer, you can still file a claim for compensation, as exposure to PFAS is linked to numerous malignant diseases.
