Illinois Firefighters Firefighting Foam Cancer
About the Investigation:

About the Firefighting Foam lawsuit
AFFF is a chemical-based foam that is used to cover and extinguish petroleum and jet fuel fires. It is much more effective in fighting fires than just using water. However, the foam contains PFA chemicals that may cause harm to humans and the environment. Some of the side effects experienced by people who used the foam are: kidney cancer, pancreatic cancer, testicular cancer, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, thyroid cancer, thyroid disease, liver cancer, breast cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia, ulcerative colitis, or kidney disease.
The exposure to this foam is a result of ingesting, inhaling or absorbing some of it through the skin. Firefighters in the military or assigned to airports are at highest risk.
Holding Them Accountable
The two largest manufacturers of Firefighting Foam are 3M and DuPont, both huge multinational corporations with virtually endless resources to spend on legal defense. To have the best chance at winning a case against companies like this and being fairly compensated, you should work with a law firm that has the experience and resources needed to stand up to companies like these.
