Coventry Training Site claims

Coventry Training Site claims video

Coventry Training Site is a military installation in Rhode Island. Over the past decades, it has become contaminated with PFAS as a consequence of military firefighters using AFFF, a highly toxic fire suppressant. These substances, also known as “forever chemicals,” are dangerous both to the environment and to human health, as exposure is responsible for numerous awful diseases. With each use of AFFF, PFAS are released into the environment, where they can persist for over a thousand years. These chemicals are challenging to remove even with the most advanced technologies, as they are persistent contaminants. If you are a veteran or a family member of one who spent time at Coventry Training Site and now struggle with a disease that might be related to toxic exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact us, as you might be entitled to compensation.

Claim Application

At the moment, the PFAS level in the environment of the military facility is 60 ppt, while the current safe exposure limit is 70 ppt. Still, according to the recently proposed new safe exposure limits by the Environmental Protection Agency, the concentration of PFOS and PFOA at Coventry Training Site is very high. These chemicals are the most harmful out of the PFAS group, as they have a strong association with cancer. While the PFOS level exceeds the safe exposure limit by 65 times, the PFOA level eclipses it by 1,000 times. Veterans and family members who lived at this military installation should keep a close eye on their health and seek medical attention if they experience unusual symptoms, as they are at risk of developing serious diseases.

What toxic agents are present on Coventry Training Site?

Right now, the only contaminants of concern lurking on Coventry Training Site are PFAS. Nevertheless, their presence alone is enough to endanger the health of service members currently training there, as even exposure to low concentrations can lead to the development of a terrible disease. The source of PFAS on this military installation and on other 700 nationwide is firefighters using AFFF to extinguish jet fuel and petroleum fires. While the fire suppressant is very effective, it sometimes contains 98% “forever chemicals.”

It is worth noting that PFOS and PFOA are not the only chemicals from this group polluting Coventry Training Site, as there are at least eight others present in its environment. The existence of so many toxic agents at the military facility only worsens the extent of toxic exposure among service members. However, veterans who spent time there are also at risk of developing a serious illness, as exposure to PFAS usually results in a disease within several years to several decades after the first contact with the chemicals.

What diseases can you develop following toxic exposure at Coventry Training Site?

Although toxic exposure can be responsible for countless health problems, veterans and family members who intend to file a claim should know that only certain diagnoses might make them eligible. This is because their disease must have a strong connection with toxic exposure, which can also be supported by medical evidence. Even with a qualifying diagnosis, you might still not be entitled to compensation, as there are other requirements you have to meet. These are the diagnoses for which people who spent at least one cumulative year at Coventry Training Site can file a claim:
