The base, which was built in 1917, is adjacent to Hampton and Newport News, Virginia. There are two components of Joint Base Langley-Eustis, located 17 miles apart from each other. Because military personnel would have to use aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, to extinguish aircraft fire during training or on duty, the levels of PFAS, a dangerous group of chemicals, became higher in the drinking water on the base.
Today, if you are a veteran or a family member of one who was stationed at Joint Base Langley-Eustis for at least one cumulative year and developed a serious disease, you are eligible for compensation.
Everyone who spent time on Joint Base Langley-Eustis drank water contaminated with PFAS, which now places veterans and their family members at high risk of developing a terrible disease. It is worthy of note that, following exposure to PFAS, it will take several years for a disease to occur, as the toxic agents cause damage to the organs gradually. The military base is owned by the Department of Defense and operated by the U.S. Air Force. If you lived on the base for at least 1 cumulative year and subsequently came to struggle with a disease, please contact Atraxia Law and we will help you recover the compensation you deserve.
While exposure to PFAS is associated with numerous diseases in medical literature, there are only some that will make you eligible for seeking financial compensation. The reason why you cannot qualify for compensation if you struggle with any disease is the fact that a definitive causal relation must exist between exposure to PFAS and the health problem in question. The following are the diseases that can ensue following exposure to PFAS, as well as the diseases that make you eligible for compensation:
It is of utmost importance to seek medical attention if you experience a new onset of symptoms, as you may have developed a serious disease as a result of exposure to PFAS. Nevertheless, because these diseases are often misdiagnosed, it is a wise idea to seek a second and even a third opinion from medical specialists.
For over three decades, we have been dedicated to helping victims of toxic exposure recover the compensation they deserve and hold the liable parties responsible for their negligence. If you were stationed at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, either alone or with family members, Atraxia Law will help you file a claim to recover the maximum compensation available for you.
Regardless of your situation, we will provide you with quality legal assistance and your involvement in the process, which is ten minutes over the phone, will be minimal. Eventually, you will obtain the compensation you deserve, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment.
