Brain cancer - PFAS exposure claims

Every year, nearly 24,000 people receive a diagnosis of brain cancer in the US. The cause of brain cancer is unknown at the moment, but medical studies found that exposure to radiation and a family history of this malignant disease are major risk factors for brain cancer. Furthermore, exposure to PFAS, a group of toxic fluorinated chemicals, has also been found to increase the risk of developing brain cancer. Therefore, if you were stationed at a military base where PFAS were present and came to struggle with brain cancer, we strongly advise you to contact our legal team and we will help you recover the financial compensation you are entitled to.

Claim Application

There are 700,000 people throughout the country who are living with a brain tumor at the moment. The average age of diagnosis for brain cancer is 60. Nevertheless, brain cancer can develop at any age. The survival rate for this malignant disease is a little over 75% and it decreases with age. Glioblastoma is the most common type of brain cancer, accounting for 48.6% of all malignant tumors. Some of the symptoms of brain cancer are:

  • headaches
  • seizures
  • personality or memory changes
  • nausea or vomiting
  • fatigue
  • drowsiness
  • sleep problems
  • loss of balance
  • changes in speech

On military bases, the source of PFAS was aqueous film-forming foam, also known as AFFF, a fire suppressant used to extinguish jet fuel and petroleum fires by military firefighters and trainees. PFAS are forever chemicals, which means that once they are released into the environment, they persist. Similarly, once they enter the human body, they cannot be eliminated, being able to lead to the development of serious diseases such as brain cancer. If you were stationed at a military base contaminated with PFAS and received a diagnosis of brain cancer, please contact our legal team to recover the financial compensation you are eligible for.
