As a personal injury law firm with a concentration in dangerous products, Alonso Krangle is deeply concerned about the health risks associated with Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF), a type of firefighting foam. This foam, used extensively in firefighting operations, particularly in extinguishing flammable liquid fires, has been linked to serious health complications and environmental contamination.
Who is at Risk?
Firefighters (both military and civilian) and support personnel who have come into contact with AFFF are at a heightened risk of developing serious health complications. This is due to the high concentration of polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) within the foam. These chemicals are persistent in the environment and in human bodies, leading to potential health risks over time.
What are the Health Risks?
Exposure to PFAS has been linked to a variety of health problems, including several types of cancer (testicular, kidney, prostate, liver, pancreatic, bladder, thyroid), thyroid disease, liver damage, immune system dysfunction, and developmental issues in fetuses and infants. These chemicals can accumulate in the human body over time, and exposure can occur through drinking contaminated water, eating contaminated food, or inhaling contaminated air.
Legal Actions Against AFFF Manufacturers
Victims impacted by AFFF have begun to file lawsuits against the manufacturers of the foam. These lawsuits allege that the manufacturers failed to adequately warn users of the life-threatening risks associated with the product. As a personal injury law firm, we stand ready to assist those who have been harmed by this dangerous product.
