Texas Lawyers Helping The Victims Of Firefighting Foam Exposure
Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), also known as firefighting foam, is a crucial tool to combat fires and save lives. Unfortunately, exposure to AFFF can put the lives of firefighters or other innocent people in jeopardy.

Our team of personal injury attorneys is committed to recovering maximum compensation for your damages caused by toxic exposure.
The Dangers Of AFFF: What To Know
Fire departments began using modern firefighting foam in the 1960s. Since then, however, scientists have discovered that the polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAs) used in AFFF are known carcinogens. Exposure to PFAs – especially repeated or prolonged exposure – has been linked to a higher risk of kidney, bladder, testicular and breast cancer. Some of the most common ways that victims are exposed include:
- Working as a firefighter
- Working in a fire safety position
- Serving in the military
As a result of exposure to PFAs, you may incur expensive damages such as hospital stays, prescription medications, chemotherapy and loss of earning capacity. One way to fight back against the companies that use this toxic foam is to file a lawsuit against them.
