Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) is a fire suppressant that is used to extinguish Class B fires such as, fuel fires and other chemicals. AFFF uses several chemicals known as Perfluoroalkyl and Polyflueoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). These chemicals have been long determined to be carcinogenic. PFAS chemicals are known to be “forever” chemicals which when absorbed stay within one’s body for years. These chemicals do not break down easily. Continuous and extensive exposure can cause various cancers such as testicular cancer, kidney cancer, and pancreatic cancer. If you believe you have been exposed to these harmful chemicals, reach out to us. We have a group of attorneys on standby to look at your case.
