Claim Evaluation Process

This is a Mass Tort, Not a Class Action

What’s the difference?

Mass Tort Payments
Victims getting what they deserve

In a class action law suit, similarly situated  victims (ie victims with the same injuries and/or backgrounds) are grouped together and their claims are decided by a judge all at once. Whereas in a mass tort case, victims’ claims are heard individually. This allows judges to consider and rule on the specific details of each plaintiffs’ claims.

The benefit of mass tort litigation is that plaintiffs have more power in settlement negotiations which ultimately lead to significantly greater payouts compared to class actions.

Firefighting Foam May Save Lives, but Is It Harming Yours?

 

Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF)

 

AFFF, also known as Aqueous Film-Forming Foam, is a type of firefighting foam that coats the fuel of a fire with a thick film to prevent contact with oxygen and the formation of flammable vapors. This foam has been utilized by firefighters, military bases, and airports for several decades since its creation in the 1960s.

AFFF frequently contains PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances), a diverse group of chemicals used in hundreds of types of products. PFAS in the environment can enter the food supply through plants and animals that are grown, raised, or processed in contaminated areas.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Center for Disease Control (CDC), and American Cancer Society (ACS)
have issued warnings about PFAS, indicating that these chemicals break down slowly over time and have been linked to multiple cancers in various scientific studies. While there is still much to learn, it is important to be aware of the potential risks associated with PFAS exposure.

As they are long-lasting and frequently used chemicals, most people are regularly exposed to PFAS. In addition to being in various processed foods and drinks, these chemicals have absolutely wreaked havoc on our air, soil, and water! While it is still early days, studies continue to show that exposure from contaminated resources can lead to severe adverse health effects.

3M, the original producer of AFFF and two types of PFAS, are facing thousands of claims for allegedly hiding their own research and failing to disclose the health risks of AFFF to the public.
Government agencies such as the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), the EPA, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Science (NIEHS) have all studied and cataloged the effects of PFAS contamination. Even 3M conducted their own research in the
1970s and discovered the dangers of AFFF exposure. 
To date, numerous injuries have been linked to these substances with a variety of cancers among them.

  •  Breast Cancer (men)
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  •  Leukemia
  • Liver Cancer
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Thyroid Cancer
