AFFF Firefighting Foam Lawsuit

Morgan & Morgan attorneys are reviewing claims on behalf of firefighters who have been exposed to a toxic firefighting foam and may have developed cancer as a result.

A type of firefighting foam called Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) is known to contain dangerous chemicals called per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which have been linked with cancer. AFFF is designed to extinguish jet fuel- and petroleum-based fires, and it has been used for decades by firefighters and U.S. military firefighters.

Firefighters who were regularly exposed to the foam may have developed cancer. A number of cancers — including but not limited to breast cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer — have been associated with exposure to the chemicals that make up AFFF.

Together We Can Hold AFFF Manufacturers Accountable

Companies — including 3M and Dupont, among others — have sold AFFF products for decades. According to reports, the foam has been used around the country since at least the early 1970s. 

It’s likely that the manufacturers of firefighting foams have been aware for decades that the PFAS chemicals in AFFF could be toxic to humans. Research shows that PFOS chemicals had been detected in the blood of workers at PFAS manufacturing facilities and the blood of the general population by the end of the 1970s, and a decade later, these chemicals were found to cause cancer in animals.

In 2006, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launched a program to reduce PFAS emissions and product content by 95% by 2010 and 100% by 2015. Many of these manufacturers started using or making foams using a “short-chain PFAS” that was suggested to be safer for human health, although recent studies show it may not be.

Prior to this, the AFFF manufacturers failed to take action to protect users of AFFF despite their knowledge of AFFF’s potential harm.

A firefighting foam lawsuit may be one way to hold these manufactures accountable for their negligence.
