Our attorneys are reviewing claims on behalf of firefighters who were exposed to a toxic foam from the firefighting effort and may have developed cancers. Aqueous Filmforming Foam (AFFF), a type of firefighting foam, contains hazardous compounds known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), which have a cancer association. While US military firefighters have been using oil-based wildfires for decades, AFFF is specifically curated to fight jet fuel-fueled fires.
Firefighters regularly exposed to AFFF can get cancer. A range of cancers- including, but not limited to, breast, liver, pancreatic, prostate, and testicular cancer- have been linked to exposure to chemicals that form AFF.
Companies, including 3M and Dupont, have sold AFFF products for decades. According to reports, the foam has been used nationwide since the early 1970s. Hence, it’s probable that the foam makers were aware of the potential toxicity of the PFAS compounds found in AFFFs for years. Studies have shown that by the late 1970s, the chemicals PFOS had been detected in blood from workers in PFAS manufacturing facilities and blood from the general public. Ten years later, evidence and research proved that the compounds were to blame for animal malignancies.
The US Environmental Protection Agency initiated a program in 2006 to reduce PFAS product emissions and composition by 95% by 2010 and 100% by 2015. As a result, many manufacturers began using or producing foams using “short-chain PFAS,” which was assumed to be safe for human health, though more recent studies show it may not. Before that, the manufacturers of AFFF failed to act to protect users of AFFF, even though they knew about AFFFs potential harmfulness.
A firefighting foam lawsuit could hold these manufacturers responsible for their negligence. AFFF manufacturers may have been negligent in designing, engineering, manufacturing, testing, and distributing these products.
