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.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
