Morgan Legal Group Is Helping Firefighters Who Developed Cancer After Using Fire Fighting Foam
The Morgan Legal Group is reviewing claims of firefighters who developed cancer after exposure to Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF), a specialized substance used to extinguish petroleum- and jet fuel-based fires.
AFFF is known to contain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), a series of synthetic chemical compounds that have been linked to various cancers. Despite knowing the risks associated with PFAS, some companies manufactured and profited from hazardous firefighting foams for years.
If you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer, and was exposed to or used AFFF products, you may have a case against the companies that manufactured and profited from this dangerous product.
PFAS has been linked to breast cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer. Sadly, many firefighters were exposed to the chemical for years, if not decades.
AFFF has been used in America since at least the early 1970s. Corporations such as 3M and DuPont were aware that PFAS had been detected in the blood of workers at manufacturing facilities.
It wasn’t until after 2010 when the EPA asked these companies to cease manufacturing and using certain PFAS. So, the companies began using “short-chain” PFAS, which were supposed to be safer for humans. However, recent studies have indicated that’s not the case.
When a corporation is negligent in the design, engineering, manufacturing, testing, or release of hazardous AFFF products, they should be held accountable for their negligence.
