At Brayton Purcell LLP we understand the serious concerns surrounding Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) and the potential impact on individuals and communities. This page is dedicated to providing valuable information about firefighting foam, AFFF lawsuits, and the steps you can take if you believe you have been affected.
What is Firefighting Foam?
Firefighting foam, including Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF), has long been utilized to combat fires. While effective in extinguishing fires, these foams contain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which are man-made chemical compounds that have raised environmental and health concerns. Risks from exposure to AFFF include thyroid disease and testicular, kidney and bladder cancers.

In recent years, individuals and communities have filed lawsuits related to the adverse effects of AFFF exposure. These lawsuits often involve claims of health issues, environmental contamination, and property damage.
