Located in Colorado, Peterson Air Force Base was built in 1942, during World War II, to provide support to Camp Carson. It shares the airfield with the adjacent Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. Since military firefighters would use AFFF to extinguish aircraft fire, contamination with PFAS, a group of dangerous chemicals, was bound to occur. Today, people who were stationed on the base for at least 1 year and came to struggle with a serious disease as a result of exposure to PFAS are eligible for compensation, which our resourceful legal team will help recover from Peterson Air Force Base. Whether you are a veteran or a family member of one, our attorneys will assist you in obtaining the maximum compensation available for you, as we have been pursuing toxic exposure cases for the last three decades.
Peterson Air Force Base was deemed a Superfund site by the Environmental Protection Agency and until now, they have spent over $50 million for the cleanup, which is still ongoing. However, the military base continues to be in use, as the levels of PFAS have been lowering slowly but surely by virtue of the actions of EPA. If you lived on Peterson Air Force Base for at least 1 year and subsequently developed a disease as a consequence of drinking contaminated water, you may be entitled to financial compensation, which you can recover with the help of our resourceful attorneys.
While there are numerous diseases that have a potential link to PFAS exposure, there are only certain diagnoses that make you eligible for compensation. This is because a definitive causal relation was found between these health issues and exposure to PFAS. The following are some of the diseases that can occur following exposure to these dangerous chemicals, as well as the diagnoses that qualify you for filing a claim for compensation:
It is worthy of note that if you have any other cancer and spent at least 1 year at Peterson Air Force Base, you can still seek financial compensation, as there is a strong connection between cancer and exposure to PFAS. Thereby, any cancer diagnosis will make you eligible for taking legal action. Nevertheless, because these diseases are often misdiagnosed, it is a wise idea to seek a second and even third opinion from medical specialists. A correct and accurate diagnosis will allow you to receive the most effective treatment, as well as to apply for compensation if your health problem is on the list above.
If you are a veteran or a family member of one who was stationed on Peterson Air Force Base for at least 1 year, you have the right to take legal action. With over three decades of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases, our attorneys are ready to carefully review your case and to help you file a claim with Peterson Air Force Base if you meet the criteria. The only documents we will need from you are your military and medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim. In the meantime, the rest of the paperwork will be efficiently handled by our legal team. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your physical and emotional distress and the liable parties will be held responsible for their negligent actions. Finally, it is worthy of note that if you already receive disability compensation from the VA, you can still file a claim with Alameda Naval Base, as you are entitled to money from both.
