Hill Air Force Base claims

According to population number and size, Hill Air Force Base is the second-largest base in northern Utah and home to numerous operational and support missions. Its construction began in 1940 and got its name from Major Ployer Peter Hill of the U.S. Army Air Corps. The base was an essential supply and maintenance center supporting war efforts. Its responsibilities nowadays include the operation of the Utah Test and Training Range, Ogden Air Logistics Complex, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, and Nuclear Weapons Center. The tests conducted by the Utah Department of Environmental Quality registered water contamination with high levels of "forever chemicals." Clearing water infected with PFOS and PFOAs has become a global challenge. These chemicals found in various products, including firefighting foam, are known to inflict long-term effects on human health.

Claim Application

Aqueous film-forming foam has been manufactured since the 1950s. It contains chemical substances that cause negative human health effects that are so persistent that they don’t disintegrate after entering the body or the environment. Hill Air Force Base is a Superfund site heavily contaminated with PFAS. The substances involved in the Environmental Protection Agency cleanup included VOCs, chromium, cadmium, manganese, and arsenic. EPA considers the 16 areas of the site operable and has taken long-term cleanup measures.

What contaminants were found on Hill Air Force Base?

Per - and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been found on Hill Air Force Base and are subject to investigation, as these manufactured chemicals threaten human life and environmental safety.

The constant use of AFFF and the contaminated water sources are currently causing adverse health consequences, such as different types of cancer, difficulties at birth, immune system failure, and other disruptions.

Veterans and their family members exposed to PFAS and stationed on Hill Air Force Base are entitled to compensation for their suffering.

What are the diseases you can develop from toxic exposure at Hill Air Force Base?

Exposure to PFAS generated by the release in the environment through the use of AFFF is correlated with a significant number of severe diseases. The diagnoses that make people who were stationed at Hill Air Force Base eligible for financial reparations are:

The causal relationship between these medical conditions and PFAS exposure may qualify you for compensation not only if you were a member of the military but also if you were pregnant during your time spent at Hill Air Force Base and gave birth to a child with health issues.
