Fetal death - PFAS exposure claims

The term fetal death concerns the spontaneous intrauterine death of a fetus at any time during pregnancy. Between 2015 and 2017, over 40,000 fetal deaths occurred in the US. While some of the causes of this occurrence are fetomaternal hemorrhage, umbilical cord complications, and fetal infection, fetal death can also be the result of exposure to PFAS, currently polluting over 700 military sites in the country. If you were stationed at a contaminated military base with your husband while you were pregnant or alone, as a female member of the military, and experienced fetal death, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the companies that manufactured the aqueous film-forming foam that was used on the military base in question, which is the primary source of PFAS.

Also known as intrauterine fetal demise, fetal death is undoubtedly a tragic experience for any pregnant woman. There are numerous causes for this occurrence, such as placental insufficiency, fetal infection, placental abruption, genetic abnormalities of the fetus, and umbilical cord complications. However, exposure to PFAS also has a strong connection with fetal death, which is why women who experienced this terrible event are eligible for compensation if they were exposed to these dangerous chemicals while they were pregnant and stationed at a military base. The most common symptoms of fetal death include:

  • cessation of fetal movement
  • spotting or bleeding
  • the absence of fetal heartbeat

Nevertheless, a large number of women who carry a deceased fetus do not experience any symptoms and the death of their baby can only be found by using diagnostic tools such as ultrasound. Fetal death is diagnosed when the fetus has no heartbeat. If you were stationed at a military base while you were pregnant along with your husband or by yourself as a female member of the military and experienced fetal death, we strongly encourage you to contact our resourceful legal team, who will go to great lengths to recover the compensation you deserve for your emotional distress if you are eligible.

Quality legal assistance for women who experienced fetal death and they lived on contaminated military bases

In the regrettable case that you experienced fetal death as the wife of a member of the military whom you were stationed with at a military base contaminated with PFAS or as a female member of the military, you might be eligible for compensation. The legal process is relatively simple, as it does not entail litigation. Instead, a claim will be filed with the companies that manufactured the fire suppressant known as AFFF, the main source of PFAS contamination on military bases.

Veterans who experienced fetal death due to toxic exposure will have to retrieve their military records and their medical records and send these documents to our skilled attorneys. Spouses of veterans who lost a child will be required to provide our legal team with evidence of their stay at the military base and their medical records, too. Our attorneys will thoroughly assess your case and prepare your claim for submission if you are eligible for compensation.
