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.

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:
