Since each AFFF exposure case is unique, predicting the exact sum of money a civilian or military firefighter can receive after filing a claim is impossible.
There are many factors that can greatly affect the compensation you will receive, and only your attorney can give you a rough estimate of how much you can obtain from your AFFF exposure claim after they carefully evaluate your case.
Perhaps the main factor that will influence the sum of money you can recover is your diagnosis, as firefighters with cancer will usually obtain the largest sums of money for their physical and emotional distress. Other important factors that can influence your compensation include:
In general, fair compensation for pain and suffering is approximately 3 times the amount of economic losses. The two basic types of compensatory damages awarded in AFFF exposure cases are medical bills and pain and suffering. Many cancer treatments cost $10,000 per month, with some as high as $30,000 per month.
