Our lawyers believe the AFFF lawsuits will reach a settlement in the near future. No guarantees. But that is our prediction. We think many if not all defendants will offer reasonable AFF settlement amounts to firefighters in 2023. This post is a look at where we are and gives an update below.

Firefighting foam containing Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) has been used for decades to extinguish fires involving fuels and other flammable liquids. Our firefighting foam lawyers are continuing to investigate and pursue new lawsuits on behalf of firefighters who have been diagnosed with various forms of cancer, such as testicular cancer, kidney cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer, bladder cancer, lymphoma, leukemia or other injuries that have been linked to PFAS chemicals in AFFF. The conventional wisdom is that AFFF class action lawsuits for firefighters may soon settle in whole or in part.
