PFAS exposure at Peterson Air Force Base

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 cumulative year and came to struggle with a serious disease as a result of exposure to PFAS are eligible for compensation. 

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 the EPA.

What diseases can I develop as a result of PFAS exposure?

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 to file a claim for compensation:

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.
