Firefighting Foam

Fire Fighting Foam Lawsuit

Discover the Hidden Dangers


The Problem: Combatting chemical fires has been a top priority for military personnel and firefighters for decades. Aqueous film-forming foam, commonly referred to as AFFF, has been a prominent tool in their arsenal since the 1970s. However, recent discoveries have revealed that various components within AFFF are carcinogenic to humans.

The Response: Lawsuits are being filed on behalf of affected clients. If you developed kidney, prostate, testicular, bladder, thyroid or liver cancer, lymphoma, or leukemia after exposure to AFFF foam, you may be entitled to compensation as part of a PFAS settlement.

What Can We Do to Help: Our experienced attorneys can review your medical records and advise you if filing a case is in your best interest.


Firefighters are true heroes, tackling some of the most dangerous situations imaginable. They’re trained to respond to emergencies and constantly put their lives on the line. But did you know they may also face long-term health risks? Shockingly, an increasing number of firefighters are developing cancer due to exposure to firefighting foam and PFAS.

Unveiling the Silent Threat: PFAS and its Connection to Cancer


When battling fires involving highly flammable substances like petroleum or jet fuel, firefighters rely on Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF). This foam, however, contains polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), synthetic chemicals that don’t break down in the environment. Exposure to PFAS can lead to serious health risks, including hormone suppression, liver damage, developmental issues, and cancer.


Fighting for Justice: The Legal Battle Against PFAS


AFFF manufacturers, including industry giant 3M, have been accused of withholding critical information about the risks associated with PFAS exposure in firefighting foam. Neglecting to warn consumers of potential health hazards, these companies now face numerous lawsuits. Many firefighters claim they developed cancer due to exposure to AFFF. You may be eligible for compensation if you or someone you know has served as a firefighter and battled cancer.


Taking Action for Firefighters Everywhere


PFAS exposure has been linked to various cancers, including testicular, kidney, prostate, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have both identified a significant connection. If you’ve been affected, it’s crucial to seek legal advice.
