The documents necessary to file a claim for AFFF exposure are your employment or military records and your medical records

Toxic exposure cases are very complex and challenging to pursue, as they require solid evidence to support your case. However, if you decide to file a lawsuit for AFFF exposure with the help of a lawyer who specializes in this area of practice, you will only have to provide them with your employment records, if your exposure was occupational, your military records, if you were exposed in the military, and with your medical records, which must state the causal relation between your diagnosis and exposure to AFFF. The remaining necessary documents will be carefully prepared by your attorney and their legal experts, who will conduct extensive research to find additional evidence to support your lawsuit. Documents such as the complaint, the summons, and the counterclaim will be taken care of by your attorney, as your involvement in the legal process will be minimal if you take legal action with the assistance of a specialized lawyer.
