Breast cancer - PFAS exposure claims

By the end of 2021, over 280,000 cases of breast cancer will have been diagnosed in the US. There are numerous causes of breast cancer, such as obesity, excessive alcohol consumption, having your first child when you are older, as well as radiation exposure. Nevertheless, medical studies have recently found a causal relationship between breast cancer and PFAS exposure, toxic chemicals that are currently present on more than 700 military sites throughout the country. If you were stationed with your husband at one of these military bases or as a female member of the military and developed breast cancer, you may be eligible for compensation, which our skilled legal team can help you recover.

Claim Application

Even if you have a diagnosis of breast cancer, our attorneys will have to review your military and medical records to determine whether you are indeed eligible for compensation. We offer a free evaluation to everyone who wants to file a claim.

According to medical studies, between 5% and 10% of breast cancer cases are the result of inherited gene mutations. It is worthy of note that men can also develop breast cancer, although this occurrence is quite rare, with approximately 2,500 diagnosed cases every year in the country. Nearly 13% of women in the United States will develop breast cancer at one point during their lifetime. By the end of 2021, nearly 50,000 women will have died of breast cancer. The most common symptoms of breast cancer include:

  • a lump in the breast or underarm
  • thickening or swelling of a part of the breast
  • irritation or dimpling of breast skin
  • redness or flaky skin in the nipple area
  • pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area
  • nipple discharge, including blood

On military bases, the main source of PFAS was the use of aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, used by military firefighters and trainees. This effective fire suppressant was employed to put out jet fuel and petroleum fires. It contains a large amount of PFAS, which inevitably led to contamination of the military bases where it was used. In the regrettable event that you were stationed at one of these military bases with your husband or by yourself as a female member of the military and came to struggle with breast cancer, we might be able to help you recover financial compensation by filing a toxic exposure claim with the responsible companies.
