Generalized hypersensitivity skin disorder - PFAS exposure claims

When there is a disturbance in the proper functioning of the immune system, generalized hypersensitivity skin disorder can occur. This can be triggered by exposure to PFAS, a group of toxic chemicals that are polluting over 700 military sites in the US at the moment. If you were stationed at one of these military bases and developed severe generalized hypersensitivity skin disorder, you are entitled to financial compensation.

Claim Application

Hypersensitivity skin disorders are caused by immune system reactions that concern the skin. These skin disorders are thereby autoimmune diseases. In many cases, exposure to toxic agents such as trichloroethylene is the culprit behind generalized hypersensitivity skin disorders. The following are only some of the hypersensitivity skin disorders you may come to struggle with following severe exposure to PFAS on military bases:

  • erythema multiforme
  • erythema nodosum
  • granuloma annulare
  • keratosis pilaris
  • panniculitis
  • pyoderma gangrenosum
  • Stevens-Johnson syndrome
  • toxic epidermal necrolysis

The source of PFAS on military bases is the use of aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, by military firefighters and trainees to put out jet fuel and petroleum fires. This fire suppressant, while very effective, is very dangerous, as it releases a large amount of PFAS into the environment. These chemicals are also known as forever chemicals, since once they are released into the environment, they persist, which makes the job of removing them very difficult for organizations such as the Environmental Protection Agency. If you were stationed at a military base contaminated with PFAS and developed severe generalized hypersensitivity skin disorder, you are eligible for compensation from the companies that manufactured the AFFF you were exposed to. Moreover, if one of the family members who was stationed with you comes to struggle with this health problem, they can also recover financial compensation.
