Firefighting Foam Cancer Lawsuit

foam cancer

Nadrich & Cohen is actively representing firefighters throughout California and nationwide who developed the following cancers

  • Kidney cancer 
  • Testicular cancer 
  • Pancreatic cancer 
  • Prostate cancer 
  • Lymphoma 
  • Leukemia 
  • Neuro Endocrine Tumors
  • Bone marrow cancer
  • Neuroendocrine Tumors

Firefighters we represent have been exposed to Firefighting Foam, also known as Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF). If these firefighters become diagnosed with one of the above cancers they have a claim for monetary recovery. 

AFFF is a firefighting suppressant used by firefighters, both civilian and military for the past 50 years. AFFF is a product used to fight oil and/or petroleum based fires. 

Manufacturers who sold Firefighting Foam used dangerous chemicals Perfluoralkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl, known as PFAS. A recent study has linked PFAS exposure to certain cancers. 

These manufacturers have known for decades that the chemicals contained in the PFAS process can cause cancer. Exposure to PFAS has been linked to testicular and kidney cancers. 

Firefighting Foam Cancer

Firefighting Foam is an effective product used in petroleum and fuel based fires. It is effective because it creates a blanket that cuts off the fire from oxygen which is needed for the burn. Chemicals in the product include PFAS related chemicals.

We are actively representing clients who have been diagnosed with these cancers due to PFAS exposure. Our lawyers have prior experience representing PFAS exposure victims. Our teams have previously obtained a several hundred million dollar settlement from PFAS manufacturers.

We are representing firefighters who were diagnosed with kidney, testicular and pancreatic cancer and have used or been exposed to Firefighting Foam. Please call today if we can help you or a loved one or if you simply have a question concerning Firefighter Foam. 

We believe these cancers are caused by PFAS exposure. We also represent US military firefighters and civilian firefighters assigned to airports because the foam was used exclusively for decades in airfield/airport firefighting. 

If you or a loved was a firefighter and exposed to Firefighting Foam and has been diagnosed with cancer, let us obtain a financial recovery for you. Please call today to see if you have a claim. There is no charge to you if we do not make a recovery.

Firefighting Foam Manufacturers

All AFFF products contain PFAS chemicals. Your cancer may have been caused by firefighting foam if the foam you used was an AFFF product. The following products are known to contain particularly high levels of PFAS chemicals or PFAS precursors:

• Legacy PFOS AFFF – 3M exclusively manufactured and sold these foams in the United States from the late 1960s until 2002. They were sold under the brand name “Light Water.” These foams contain the PFAS chemical PFOS and other precursors which can break down into PFOS.

• Legacy Fluorotelomer AFFF – These foams were sold and made in the U.S. from the 1970s until 2016. They encompass all brands of AFFF except 3M’s Light Water. These foams contain precursors which can break down into the PFAS chemical PFOA.”
