Neurological effects - PFAS exposure claims

The term neurological effects refers to the detrimental consequences of a factor regarding the structure and function of the nervous system. Some of the most common neurological effects are delayed reaction time, as well as problems with short-term memory, visual perception, attention, and color vision. While the causes of neurological effects are numerous, recent medical studies found a strong connection between exposure to PFAS, a group of toxic chemicals, and these nervous system problems. PFAS are currently lurking on more than 700 military sites throughout the US. If you were stationed at a contaminated military base and came to struggle with neurological effects, you might be eligible for compensation.

Claim Application

Even if you experience neurological effects, 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.

The structural, biochemical, or electrical abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord, or other nerves, which are collectively known as neurological effects, can lead to the development of a wide range of symptoms. Some of these symptoms are paralysis, muscle weakness, poor coordination, loss of sensation, seizures, confusion, pain, and altered levels of consciousness. Neurological effects take a heavy toll on both the physical and the mental health of the sufferers. The most common physical symptoms concerning neurological effects include:

      • partial or complete paralysis
      • muscle weakness
      • partial or complete loss of sensation
      • seizures
      • difficulty reading and writing
      • poor cognitive abilities

On military bases, the source of PFAS is the employment of aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, by military firefighters and trainees to put out jet fuel and petroleum fires. This is a very effective fire suppressant that was developed by the U.S. Navy along with the 3M company in the early 1960s. If you were stationed at a military base where PFAS were present, either alone or with your family, and came to struggle with neurological effects, please contact our law firm, which may be able to recover financial compensation for you. Similarly, if one of the family members who were stationed with you experiences neurological effects, they may also be eligible for compensation from the liable AFFF manufacturers.
