After research has discovered a link between the PFAS “forever” chemical compounds in AFFF (firefighting foam) and cancer, a plethora of lawsuits were filed against firefighters as well as homeowners, claiming they believe that AFFF, along with AFFF runoff, caused cancer in their bodies. Our firm handles a lot of instances of asbestos-based cancer cases, and many prospective clients ask, “What kind of AFFF settlement can I anticipate?”

Important: The short answer is that you cannot anticipate any deal or verdict for a court case. The result in any AFFF cancer case is uncertain and will be based on your particular case’s particular details and circumstances.

However, legal analysts anticipate that possible AFFF settlements could cost firefighting foam manufacturers thousands of dollars. Recent lawsuits against producers of products containing the chemicals PFAS have resulted in multi-million dollar settlements. One example is the 2017 settlement between Teflon producers Dupont and Chemours Co., totalling $671 million.

(PFOA) -one of the PFAS chemicals in the water runoff from Dupont’s Parkersburg, West Virginia manufacturing plant caused cancer in homeowners of nearby properties. Chemours Co. was spun out of Dupont in the year 2015.

The PFOA-rich discharge of the Dupont manufacturing facility soiled the area’s water supply. These PFAS (perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl compounds) were linked with various forms of cancers, including testicular cancer and kidney cancer — two types of cancer at the heart of the latest AFFF lawsuits against manufacturers of firefighting foam.

While Dupont and Chemours Co. have denied any wrongdoing, they did not contest the fact that C-8 (a PFOA chemical resulting from the manufacture of Teflon products) can cause cancer. Both companies denied that they had committed any wrongdoing during the trial and refused to admit any responsibility as a condition of the settlement terms.

A total of $671 million from the Dupont settlement was set to be distributed to roughly 350 claimants based on the circumstances and facts of each claimant’s case.

The Dupont PFAS lawsuit settlement was a precursor to the current PFAS litigation. Thousands of lawsuits and claims have been brought against companies such as Dupont and 3M claiming that PFAS contamination of drinking water causes cancer.

According to a study conducted recently, it was found that the drinking water supply of 19 million citizens in 43 states of the United States is contaminated with PFAS.

Potentially AFFF Settlements in the Firefighting Foam cancer cases

So, what type of AFFF settlements can plaintiffs expect in cases involving cancer-fighting foam in the firefighter’s field? In reality, how litigation is not known and ultimately depends on the specific circumstances and facts of the particular case. A favourable settlement or verdict is not assured; however, due to the precedent set in lawsuits, such as the recent lawsuits against Dupont, AFFF cancer claims could lead to significant resolutions or even verdicts.

Firefighters who use AFFF “firefighting foam” and property owners who live near military installations and airports with water sources affected through AFFF runoff are at the most chance of developing cancer linked to the foam used to fight fires.
