Phoenix, AZ Firefighting Foam

Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) has been used by firefighters in both military and civilian units to suppress fires for decades. It has been used both in training and practice for firefighters across the country for years due to its effectiveness.

Sadly, chemicals contained in firefighting foam may increase the risk of different types of cancer, resulting in firefighting foam lawsuits. Thousands of AFFF lawsuits have been filed – including both firefighter cancer lawsuits and water contamination lawsuits – and are being pursued against manufacturers of firefighting foam.

People diagnosed with testicular cancer, kidney cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, liver cancer, bladder cancer, lymphoma, leukemia, or other types of cancer following exposure to PFAS chemicals in AFFF are seeking justice through legal action.

PFAS chemicals are per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, “Scientific studies have shown that exposure to some PFAS in the environment may be linked to harmful health effects in humans and animals.”

Some PFAS can accumulate and stay in the human body for a long time, and long-term exposure to PFAS causes a buildup in the body that has the potential to result in negative health effects, according to the U.S. Fire Administration of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

If you or a loved one were exposed to this foam, particularly if you were a firefighter, and later developed cancer, you may be entitled to compensation from an AFFF firefighting foam lawsuit. Please don’t delay in contacting the committed team of attorneys at Phillips Law Group for a review of your case.
