Firefighting Foam or AFFF Lawsuits
The manufacturers such as Dupont and 3M of AFFF (aka firefighting foam) have used dangerous chemicals (known as PFAS, see EPA link here) to make the foam since the early 60’s.
If you or a loved one was exposed to firefighting foam on the job and diagnosed with cancer, you may be able to seek compensation from a firefighting foam lawsuit. Give us call at (215) 764-3008 to get started with your case.
Firefighting foam, also known as AFFF (Aqueous Film-Forming Foam) is a foam firefighters have been using for decades to put out fires. It has been used extensively in the military and at airports because of its effectiveness in extinguishing jet fuel and petroleum fires. Cancer causing chemicals known as PFAS are used to make firefighting foam.
The Link Between Firefighting Foam and Cancer
Chemical-based firefighting foam called AFFF has been sold for decades, but the deadly side-effects of the chemicals are now widely known.
PFAS-based firefighting foam exposure may cause firefighters to develop:
- Kidney Cancer
- Kidney Disease
- Thyroid Cancer
- Thyroid Disease
- Testicular Cancer
- Pancreatic Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Bladder Cancer
- Liver Cancer
- Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Ulcerative Colitis
We know rumors are out there that PFAS has caused dozens of other cancers and illnesses but the science does not support any illnesses other than these cancers. This reality sets our firm apart from the large personal injury firms blanketing advertising for firefighters with illnesses science may never back up. See science study attached. Do you want to wait years or decades with expectations of compensation which will never come?
