The chemical-based firefighting foam (known as aqueous film-forming foam or AFFF) has been sold to fire officials to help put out fires for decades. What our firefighters didn’t know until recently is that the manufacturers of AFFF have used dangerous chemicals called PFAS to make this foam since the 1960s.

Those most at risk are military firefighters and firefighters assigned to airports. If you or a loved one was exposed to firefighting foam on the job and was diagnosed with cancer, you may deserve compensation.

Firefighting Foam and Cancer

Although firefighting foam has been sold for decades, the side effects of the PFAS chemicals found in the foam have only recently surfaced.

Exposure to this foam may cause firefighters to develop:

  • Renal or kidney cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Lymphoma
  • Prostate cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Reproductive issues

PFAS Effects Are Long-Lasting

PFAS do not break down easily and can last for years. What this means for unsuspecting firefighters is that this chemical can remain in the body for extended periods of time, causing serious health issues over time.

If you were diagnosed with cancer after being exposed to PFAS at any stage in your career, you may need an experienced law firm to help get you the compensation you need and deserve for your suffering.
