AFFF Foam Lawsuits

PFAS substances are a collection of human-made toxic chemicals that are also known as "forever chemicals" because they never break down. Developed by scientists in the 1940s, these known carcinogens build up over time, causing higher rates of kidney cancer, testicular cancer, thyroid disease, ulcerative colitis, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, bladder cancer, and liver cancer. A leading source of PFAS exposure is AFFF, or aqueous fire-fighting foam, used at airports and military bases throughout the country.

AFFF fire fighting foam is sprayed during accident simulations and emergency response to extinguish chemical blazes.Common at both military bases and airports, AFFF has been in widespread use by the military since 1969. Sprayed on fires during both training scenarios and actual emergencies, fire-fighting foam contains fluorinated PFAS chemicals. While lifesaving in its own right, AFFF has exposed countless servicemembers and firefighters to dangerous chemicals known to cause cancer. For decades, AFFF has been used prolifically and with little to no regard for its potential to harm.

Persons who developed cancer after repeated exposure to AFFF foam may be eligible for compensation through filing AFFF lawsuits.

AFFF Lawsuits Are Not Class Action Lawsuits

Many service members and fire fighters who have developed cancer and have a history of AFFF foam exposure wonder if filing a lawsuit will result in meaningful compensation for their family. AFFF lawsuits will not be class action lawsuits in which those who file a claim can expect only a small, symbolic settlement. Instead, AFFF lawsuits have been consolidated as multi district litigation or MDL. Over 4,000 claimants have already filed AFFF lawsuits as part of the multidistrict litigation or MDL.

MDL is a type of litigation used when a large number of plaintiffs file similar complaints for a single product. MDL litigation is different from class action lawsuits where plaintiffs may only receive a small, symbolic settlement. In MDL, persons filing successful AFFF lawsuits may anticipate significant compensation that is determined based on the particulars of their individual case.

Current AFFF Lawsuits

In the case of AFFF lawsuits, multiple defendants are involved for similar products and claims. Various cases have been filed against manufacturers of AFFF, including Buckeye Fire Production, Tyco Fire Products, 3M, and Chemours. These cases claim that the parties were negligent in the design, manufacture, and sale of AFFF and failed to warn consumers about the potential health risks linked with the foam.

Attorneys handling national AFFF lawsuits offer free, no-obligation consultations.

In 2020, one of the most high-profile cases involving firefighter foam and PFAS was resolved. The manufacturer of AFFF, 3M, agreed to pay $55 million to settle a lawsuit filed by the state of Michigan over PFAS contamination of drinking water. According to the argument, 3M was aware of the dangers of PFAS for decades but continued to sell AFFF foam containing PFAS.
