Who Can File an AFFF Lawsuit

Servicemembers and firefighters who used AFFF fire fighting foam over the last five decades have been exposed to carcinogenic chemicals known as PFAS. These chemicals were part of the unique formula that made a fire fighting foam that was effective at putting out fuel fires from aircraft. However, soon after this technology was invented, 3M and Naval scientists warned of the dangers for human health. In the decades since, numerous scientific studies and international health organizations have cautioned against human PFAS exposure. Today, the formula for AFFF fire fighting foam has been altered but decades worth of servicemembers and firefighters still harbor these dangerous chemicals in their bodies. Also known as "forever chemicals", PFAS in AFFF foam build up in the body over time and create an elevating risk for many types of cancer.

If you developed kidney, prostate, testicular, bladder, thyroid or liver cancer, lymphoma or leukaemia after exposure to AFFF foam, you may be entitled to compensation as part of a PFAS settlement.
