Camp Grayling claims

Camp Grayling claims video

Camp Grayling is a military training installation located near Grayling, Michigan. It spreads over three counties. The military installation is the main training facility for the Michigan National Guard and the largest U.S. National Guard training facility in the country. Camp Grayling was built in 1913 and is still operational today. However, it became contaminated with PFAS as a consequence of military firefighters using AFFF, a fire suppressant that sometimes contains 98% of these harmful chemicals. These dangerous substances persist in the environment for over a thousand years and remain in the body for a long time after exposure, being able to cause many terrible diseases. If you are a veteran or a family member of one who lived at Camp Grayling and now struggle with a health problem that might be related to toxic exposure, we encourage you to give us a call, as you might be eligible to file a claim and recover compensation.

Claim Application

The level of PFAS at Camp Grayling exceeds the current safe exposure limit by nearly four times. Still, according to the newly proposed limit of the Environmental Protection Agency, the PFOS level exceeds it by 340 times, whereas the PFOA level eclipses it by 3,300 times. Veterans and family members who lived at Camp Grayling should be on the lookout for unusual symptoms and seek medical assistance as soon as they notice these symptoms, as they might have developed a serious disease. Not only is having a correct diagnosis essential for your prognosis but also for your chances of obtaining compensation.

What toxic agents are contaminating Camp Grayling?

Right now, PFAS are the only known toxic contaminants polluting Camp Grayling. Their source is military firefighters using AFFF, a fire suppressant that is very effective for jet fuel and petroleum fires. Still, it is highly toxic, as it contains between 50% and 98% PFAS. Once these chemicals are released by the use of AFFF, they persist in the environment, hence their nickname “forever chemicals.” Similarly, once in the body, they take years to be completely eliminated.

Out of the PFAS group, which includes over 9,000 chemicals, PFOS and PFOA are the most studied and have the strongest association with cancer. Exposure occurs by ingestion or inhalation.
