Firefighting Foam Related Cancer

Were you exposed to firefighting foam and have you developed cancer as a result? If so, you could be entitled to recover compensation from the makers of AFFF, who failed to disclose that AFFF contained hazardous, carcinogenic chemicals called PFAS.Firefighting foam has been manufactured with PFAS since the 1960s, but the risks of exposure to these dangerous chemicals have only recently become more widely known. If you believe that exposure to the substances in AFFF may have led to your cancer diagnosis, reach out to Williams Law Group right away.

Williams Law Group is investigating cases of autism in children born to women who took the painkiller acetaminophen while pregnant.

We have the knowledge and skills to help you hold the manufacturer of AFFF responsible for their negligence through a personal injury lawsuit. Call us today for a free, no-risk consultation. Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), commonly referred to as firefighting foam, is regularly employed by firefighters to extinguish fires. This foam has been used by firefighters for over half a century, mainly because it is an extremely effective tool for putting out fires associated with jet fuel and other petroleum sources.

Unfortunately, perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are core ingredients in firefighting foam, and due to their toxicity, regular exposure to PFAS through the use of firefighting foam has led some firefighters to develop various types of cancer. PFAS includes toxic chemicals such as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA or C8), perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), and other PFA substances.

At Williams Law Group, we are currently investigating the cases of firefighters who were exposed to PFAS and were later diagnosed with one of the following types of cancer:
  • Bladder cancer

  • Breast cancer

  • Colorectal cancer

  • Kidney cancer

  • Liver cancer

  • Lymphoma

  • Pancreatic cancer

  • Prostate cancer

  • Testicular cancer

  • Thyroid cancer

Any person who worked as a firefighter, was exposed to firefighting foam, and later developed cancer could potentially be eligible for an AFFF lawsuit. While military and airport firefighters tend to be exposed to these dangerous substances more often, any firefighter who came into contact with firefighting foam at regular intervals could potentially have a case.
