Who is held liable for AFFF exposure?

Because exposure to AFFF can result in serious diseases in civilian and military firefighters, there are currently over 3,700 lawsuits filed against the manufacturers of this fire suppressant.

The companies that produce it failed to warn of the risk of developing cancer as a consequence of regular exposure, which is why thousands of injured people took legal action.

There are dozens of defendants in these lawsuits, which have been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation. Some of the companies held liable for knowingly allowing the dangerous PFAS chemicals in AFFF are the following:

The AFFF class action lawsuit was created in the winter of 2018 and assigned to Judge Richard Gergel in the U.S. District Court for South Carolina. Civilian and military firefighters who used the harmful fire suppressant on the job regularly are at high risk of developing a debilitating illness. It is worth noting that some of the diseases caused by AFFF exposure take up to 15 years to occur, as the chemicals in the fire suppressant gradually cause damage once inside the body.
