Firefighting Foam (AFFF)

Firefighting Foam (AFFF) Lawsuits Allege Cancer and Health Issues from PFAS Chemicals AFFF (aqueous film-forming foam) contains PFAS chemicals used to fight fuel and petroleum-based fires. However, AFFF has allegedly caused cancer and other illnesses in those exposed. As a result, many lawsuits have been filed against AFFF manufacturers, alleging failure to warn about health hazards.

Key details on AFFF lawsuits:

  • Lawsuits claim PFAS chemicals in AFFF can increase cancer risk, including testicular, kidney, and thyroid cancers.

  • PFAS buildup over time may also cause liver disease, infertility, and other issues.

  • Defendants allegedly knew of AFFF risks for years but failed to warn the public.

  • Plaintiffs include military personnel, firefighters, chemical plant workers, and others exposed to AFFF.

  • Lawsuits seek compensation for medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and wrongful death.

AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) is a firefighting product that is used to extinguish fires that are fuel/petroleum-based and do not respond well to either water or foams based on water. AFFF is made up of chemicals called per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which do not biodegrade. They can build up over time in the body.
