England Air Force Base claims

Located 170 miles northwest of New Orleans, Louisiana, this military base was originally named Alexandria Army Air Base. However, it underwent a name change in 1955. Contamination with PFAS, a group of hazardous chemicals, was heavy at England Air Force Base, which is why today, numerous veterans who were stationed there during the last century struggle with terrible diseases due to toxic exposure. The primary source of PFAS is aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, a fire suppressant used to extinguish class B fires such as petroleum and jet fuel fires by military personnel. If you developed a disease following toxic exposure at England Air Force Base, please contact our law firm, and we will promptly file a personal injury claim on your behalf to obtain the financial compensation you deserve.

Claim Application

In 1992, England Air Force Base was permanently closed. However, the Environmental Protection Agency is currently striving to remove the PFAS from the site. This group of chemicals is known as forever chemicals, which means that they remain there forever once they are released into the environment. Nevertheless, the Environmental Protection Agency found several ways PFAS can be removed from military bases.

Today, England Air Force Base is a Superfund site.
