With each use of AFFF, a group of over 9,000 toxic chemicals, perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, end up polluting the environment and contaminating the groundwater.
Exposure to these harmful substances, known as PFAS or "forever chemicals," is responsible for many crippling diseases.
They are dubbed "forever chemicals" because once they are released into the environment, some take over a thousand years to break down. PFAS are persistent contaminants, and they are challenging to remove even with the most innovative technologies.
Because AFFF has been extensively used at military bases nationwide, communities living nearby are at high risk of PFAS exposure due to drinking toxic water. Once inside the body, these dangerous chemicals remain there for years, being able to damage tissues and organs and eventually cause terrible diseases, including cancer.
Still, it is important to note that only civilian and military firefighters struggling with a disease resulting from AFFF exposure are eligible to file a claim. If you are in this situation, we strongly encourage you to contact our team of experts, who will gladly review your case.
Whether you are or were a civilian or military firefighter, if you were exposed to AFFF and now suffer from a related disease, you might be entitled to compensation from the liable manufacturers. To have your case evaluated, you will only have to send our expert team your employment or military records and your medical records. Eligible individuals will immediately be put in touch with a top-notch attorney.
