Major malformations - PFAS exposure claims

1 in 33 babies is born with a malformation in the US. However, not all of them have a major malformation. The causes of major malformations include factors such as genetics, infections, and nutrition. However, they can also be the result of environmental factors, such as exposure to PFAS, a group of toxic fluorinated chemicals that are currently polluting over 700 military sites throughout the country. If you were stationed at one of these military bases with your husband while you were pregnant or by yourself, as a female member of the military, and gave birth to a baby with a major malformation, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Major malformations often result in serious health problems for the newborn. Furthermore, babies with major malformations often require surgical treatment for their condition. Worldwide, nearly 300,000 newborns lose their lives within 28 days following birth as a consequence of malformations. These abnormalities may contribute to long-term disability, which takes a heavy toll on the individual, their family, the healthcare system, and the community. Some of the most common major malformations are:

On military bases, the main source of PFAS is the use of aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, used by military firefighters and trainees to put out jet fuel and petroleum fires. If you were stationed with your husband or alone, as a female member of the military, at a military base contaminated with PFAS while you were pregnant and gave birth to a baby with a major malformation, you may be eligible for compensation from the companies that manufactured AFFF. Our law firm specializes in toxic exposure and will help you obtain the most favorable outcome for your case if we determine you qualify for filing a claim.
