The History of AFFF and Its Dangers
AFFF was developed in the 1960s to combat fuel fires, especially in military and aviation settings. It contains per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which are highly effective in suppressing fires but are also harmful to human health and the environment. Over the years, PFAS exposure has been linked to numerous health issues, including cancer, thyroid disorders, and immune system dysfunction.
Health Risks Associated with AFFF Exposure
Those exposed to AFFF may face a variety of health risks. The PFAS chemicals found in AFFF can accumulate in the human body, leading to a range of illnesses, such as kidney and testicular cancer, thyroid disease, and birth defects. Military personnel, firefighters, and individuals living near AFFF-contaminated sites are at an increased risk of developing these health problems.
Legal Actions and Compensation for AFFF Victims
As awareness of the dangers of AFFF exposure has grown, numerous lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of these firefighting foams, as well as other responsible parties. Many victims have successfully obtained compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Gilde Law Firm is dedicated to helping those affected by AFFF exposure navigate the legal process and seek the compensation they deserve.
