Fiercely Protecting Firefighters Injured By Foam Chemicals
Firefighters have more to worry about than smoke inhalation and other traditional risks that go along with firefighting. Chemicals in foam used to fight fires can build up in the body after frequent exposure and may result in long-lasting health problems.
Specifically, the perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) that may be present in firefighting foam have been shown to contribute to thyroid disease and/or cancer of the testicles, kidneys or bladder over time. Affected firefighters may not discover that they have been affected until months or years after repeated exposure. Holland Injury Law, LLC, in St. Louis, loyally stands beside our clients who have suffered harm through the use of these chemical compounds, classified as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
If you or a loved one, working as a firefighter, has been diagnosed with health problems such as these, contact our St. Louis personal injury law firm. You may have a potential product liability claim against the manufacturer of the firefighting foam and/or the PPE.
