Corry Station claims

Corry Station claims video

Located at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida, this military base is one of four commands for the Center for Information Warfare Training, a learning center for Naval Education and Training Command. It is often thought of as the “cradle of cryptology.” The mission of Corry Station is to deliver trained information warfare professionals to the U.S. Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare throughout the full spectrum of military operations. Sadly, the military facility has become contaminated with PFAS over the past decades, a group of highly toxic chemicals. Exposure to PFAS is responsible for many awful diseases, including multiple forms of cancer. If you are a veteran or a family member of one who spent time at Corry Station and now struggle with a disease that might be related to toxic exposure, we encourage you to contact our law firm, as you might be eligible to file a claim and obtain compensation.

Claim Application

At Corry Station, the PFAS level exceeds the current safe exposure limit by over 43 times. Out of this group of over 9,000 chemicals, PFOS and PFOA are the most harmful, as they have a strong association with cancer. According to the recently proposed safe exposure limits for these chemicals by the Environmental Protection Agency, they are present at Corry Station in alarming concentrations. Specifically, the PFOS level exceeds the new safe exposure limit by 145,000 times, whereas the PFOA level eclipses it by 36,250 times. Veterans should keep a close eye on their health if they were stationed at this military installation, as the diseases stemming from PFAS exposure sometimes take decades to develop.

What toxic agents are lurking on Corry Station?

At the moment, PFAS are the only toxic contaminants polluting the environment of Corry Station. Nonetheless, their presence alone is enough to pose a serious health threat to everyone training or living there, as even exposure to low concentrations can ultimately result in a disease. The source of “forever chemicals” on the military base and on other 700 military facilities nationwide is firefighters using AFFF, a fire suppressant used for jet fuel and petroleum fires that sometimes contains 98% PFAS.

A sliver of hope is the Pentagon announcing that it will cease the use of AFFF on military bases across the country and replace it with a PFAS-free firefighting foam by 2024. While this will prevent further contamination with “forever chemicals,” intense cleanup activities will be necessary to remove PFAS from the environment of military bases nationwide, as these substances do not break down in the environment and are very difficult to remove even with the most innovative technologies.

What diseases can you develop following toxic exposure at Corry Station?

Toxic exposure on military bases can cause numerous terrible diseases, but veterans and family members who intend to file a claim should know that only certain diagnoses might make them entitled to financial compensation. Because only some diseases have a strong connection with toxic exposure, those who are seeking to file a claim must have a qualifying diagnosis. Even so, you might still not be eligible for compensation, as there are other criteria you must meet.
