Knowing the Difference between PFAS & AFFF Contamination

PFAS
  • What does it stand for?
    • PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) 
  • What is it?
    • A group of man-made chemicals that have been used since the 1950s in various products, such as:
      • non-stick cookware
      • stain-resistant fabrics
      • firefighting foam
      • some food packaging. 
    • PFAS are known for their heat resistance and ability to repel water and oil.
  • Known Causes:
    • These chemicals are known to not break down easily in the environment or in the human body, and they can accumulate over time. This means that people and animals can be exposed to PFAS through drinking water, food, soil, air, and dust.
  • Harmful Effects:
    • Increasing the risk of cancer, affecting the immune system, disrupting the hormonal balance, and harming the reproductive and developmental systems such as:
      • Kidney cancer
      • Bladder cancer
      • Pancreatic cancer
      • Liver Cancer
      • Breast Cancer
      • Leukemia (and other blood cancers)
      • Prostate cancer
      • Ovarian cancer
      • Testicular cancer
      • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
      • Thyroid diseases
      • Thyroid Cancer
AFFF
  • What does it stand for?
    • Aqueous Film-Forming Foam
  • What is it?
    • Chemicals commonly found in Firefighting Foam, which creates a blanket that cuts off the fuel from the oxygen it needs to burn. 
    • Aqueous Film-Forming Foam, often referred to as AFFF, serves as a suppressant employed to combat flammable liquid fires, specifically Class B fires. This foam comprises HIGHLY TOXIC SUBSTANCES known as PER- AND POLYFLUOROALKYL (PFAS). PFAS is commonly labeled as a “forever chemical” due to its persistent nature. The noxious substances contained within AFFF persist within an individual’s body for an extended period of time.
    • Commonly used by Firefighters, Emergency Responders, Military Personnel, Airport Worker
  • Common Diagnosis after Exposure:
    • Kidney cancer
    • Bladder cancer
    • Pancreatic cancer
    • Liver Cancer
    • Breast Cancer
    • Leukemia (and other blood cancers)
    • Prostate cancer

Understanding The Lawsuit

The process of filing a PFAS or AFFF lawsuit involves the following steps:
Connect with Lawyer:Let Injury Claims match you with an experienced lawyer who specializes in product liability or personal injury cases. They can evaluate your case, advise you on your legal options, and represent you throughout the process.
Gather Evidence:This may include medical records, product labels, receipts, photos, and testimonies from experts and witnesses. Your lawyer can help you collect and organize the evidence and determine the best way to present it.
File a claim:The third step is to file a claim against the responsible parties, such as the manufacturers, distributors, or retailers of these products. Your lawyer can help you draft and submit the necessary documents and comply with the deadlines and procedures of the court. Depending on the jurisdiction and the number of plaintiffs involved, your claim may be filed as an individual lawsuit or as part of a class action or multidistrict litigation (MDL).
Negotiate a settlement:The fourth step is to negotiate a settlement with the defendants or their insurance companies. A settlement is an agreement to resolve the case without going to trial. It usually involves the payment of a certain amount of money to the plaintiff in exchange for dropping the lawsuit. Your lawyer can help you negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement that covers your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Go to trial:The final step is to go to trial if a settlement cannot be reached or if you reject the settlement offer. A trial is a formal proceeding where both sides present their arguments and evidence before a judge or jury who decides the outcome of the case. Your lawyer can help you prepare for trial and advocate for your rights and interests.

Key Differences Between Mass Tort and Class Action Lawsuits

Structure:
  • Mass Tort: Involves multiple individual lawsuits grouped together due to common elements or defendants.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: A single lawsuit brought on behalf of a larger group, known as the class, with a designated representative plaintiff.
Individual Control:
  • Mass Tort: Each plaintiff maintains control over their case and its resolution.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: Class members have limited control over the lawsuit, with decisions made by the representative plaintiff and their legal team.
Compensation:
  • Mass Tort: Compensation and settlements are determined individually, considering the unique circumstances and harm suffered by each plaintiff.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: Compensation and settlements are typically distributed uniformly among all class members, often on a pro-rata basis.
Applicability:
  • Mass Tort: Ideal when cases involve varying degrees of harm or distinct circumstances for each plaintiff.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: Effective when numerous claimants have similar claims and a uniform resolution is practical.
Efficiency:
  • Mass Tort: May be more time-consuming and complex due to individual case management.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: Generally more efficient in terms of time and resources as it consolidates claims into one proceeding.
Understanding these differences is crucial for both plaintiffs and defendants when determining the most appropriate legal strategy for addressing a collective grievance or harm.
