Fort Campbell claims

Fort Campbell claims video

Fort Campbell is a U.S. Army installation located astride the Kentucky-Tennessee border. It was established in 1941 and is home to the 101st Airborne Division. The military base is still operational today. It is named in honor of Union Army Brigadier General William Bowen Campbell, the last Whig Governor of Tennessee. As a result of military firefighters using the dangerous fire suppressant AFFF, Fort Campbell is now heavily contaminated with PFAS, also known as “forever chemicals.” Furthermore, other toxic agents might have lurked on the military installation, which now endangers the health of veterans who were stationed there. If you are a veteran who was stationed at Fort Campbell after 1967, when AFFF became popular within the military, and now struggle with a disease related to toxic exposure, please contact our experienced attorneys, as you might be eligible to file a claim.

Claim Application

The military base was deemed a Superfund site, but since it is not on the National Priorities List, the Environmental Protection Agency is not currently performing cleanup activities to remove toxic agents. While the exact level of PFAS at Fort Campbell is unknown, these harmful chemicals are present in the environment of the military base. The source of PFAS on the military base is firefighters using AFFF, a fire suppressant that sometimes contains 98% “forever chemicals.” Not only do PFAS take a very long time to break down, but they also persist in the body after exposure occurs.

What toxic agents are present on Fort Campbell?

Although PFAS are the main contaminants on Fort Campbell, there are other toxic substances present on the military base. Out of the PFAS group, the most dangerous chemicals are PFOS and PFOA, as they have a strong association with multiple forms of cancer. The following are other contaminants lurking on Fort Campbell:

  • chloroform
  • perchloroethylene
  • chromium
  • bromodichloromethane
  • radium
  • barium
  • vanadium
  • strontium

The presence of so many hazardous substances on Fort Campbell only worsened toxic exposure among veterans who spent time there during active duty. It is important to note that toxic exposure can result in a serious disease only within several years or even decades from the first contact with dangerous chemicals. Consequently, veterans who were stationed at Fort Campbell should keep a close eye on their health.
