A client discusses their legal options with a PFAS contamination lawyer in Boston.

Per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, are a group of synthetic chemicals known for their remarkable durability and resistance to degradation. This property makes them exceptionally persistent in the environment and within the human body. Even infants are not spared from exposure to PFAS, as these chemicals can be passed from mothers to their babies during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

In May 2022, Massachusetts Attorney General Healey took a significant step in the fight against PFAS contamination by filing lawsuits against manufacturers of these persistent and harmful chemicals. These lawsuits highlight the damage inflicted on our state’s water and natural resources by PFAS, often referred to as “forever chemicals.”

One startling aspect of all PFAS lawsuits is the claim that one of the major manufacturers, 3M, had knowledge dating back to the 1950s regarding the toxicity and cumulative effects of PFAS in humans and animals. This revelation underscores the extent of the awareness surrounding the potential harm caused by PFAS compounds.

While state and federal authorities take legal action against PFAS manufacturers, individuals and communities also have a role to play. If you were exposed to PFAS and have suffered adverse health effects, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for medical expenses and suffering.

2023 PFAS Settlements – 3M, Dupont, Chemours, Corteva

Chemours, DuPont, and Corteva, major chemical manufacturers, have collectively agreed to pay over $1 billion to settle claims related to the contamination of public water systems across the United States with “forever chemicals.” This settlement underscores the growing awareness and legal action against PFAS contamination issues.

Additionally, 3M Co. has taken a significant step by announcing its commitment to pay at least $10.3 billion to settle lawsuits linked to the contamination of numerous U.S. public drinking water systems. These lawsuits stem from the use of potentially harmful compounds found in firefighting foam and various consumer products.

These settlements serve as a testament to the increasing accountability and responsibility of companies involved in PFAS contamination cases.

Are You Eligible To File a Boston PFAS Contamination Lawsuit?

Determining whether you have a valid PFAS contamination lawsuit can be a challenging and emotionally taxing process. To help you understand your eligibility before contacting a Boston PFAS attorney, consider the following questions:

PFAS exposure has been linked to a range of serious illnesses and cancers, including:

  • Kidney cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Lymphoma
  • Reproductive system issues
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Immune system dysfunction
  • Elevated cholesterol levels
  • High blood pressure

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with any of these illnesses associated with PFAS exposure, you may have grounds for pursuing a lawsuit seeking compensation. 

PFAS contamination can impact various industries and environments, including:

  • Military bases and personnel
  • Airports and aviation personnel
  • Manufacturing and industrial workers
  • Firefighters and first responders
  • Chemical and textile industries
  • Municipal water systems and employees
  • Residents living near contaminated sites
  • Agricultural workers

Regardless of where you work or live, if you are part of any of these industries or careers and have suffered harm due to PFAS contamination, you may have a compelling case for compensation. The reach of PFAS contamination is extensive, affecting individuals and communities across various sectors. Our dedicated legal team is ready to help you seek the justice and compensation you deserve.

Losing a loved one is an incredibly painful and heart-wrenching experience. When that loss is due to PFAS contamination, the pain can be even more profound. If you have tragically lost a family member due to PFAS-related illnesses, you may have the option to pursue a wrongful death claim. Our compassionate legal team understands the sensitivity of wrongful death cases and is here to provide the support and legal guidance you need during this difficult time.

Common Sources of PFAS

Some common sources of PFAS contamination include:

Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF)

AFFF is a significant source of PFAS contamination, often used in firefighting, in airport hangars, and at military sites. It contains PFAS compounds and can lead to extensive contamination of soil and groundwater when used.

Industrial Discharges

Industries that produce or use PFAS-containing products can release these chemicals into the air and water, contributing to environmental contamination.

Landfills

PFAS-containing products, such as non-stick cookware and waterproof textiles, can end up in landfills, where the chemicals may leach into the surrounding soil and groundwater.

Wastewater Treatment Plants 

PFAS from household products, such as stain-resistant carpets and water-repellent clothing, can enter wastewater treatment plants. These facilities are not always equipped to remove PFAS effectively, leading to the discharge of contaminated water.

Food Packaging

Some food packaging materials, especially fast-food wrappers and microwave popcorn bags, may contain PFAS. When these products come into contact with food, PFAS can migrate into what we consume.

Military Bases

Military bases may have additional sources of PFAS contamination, including PFAS-containing firefighting equipment, which can further contaminate soil and groundwater.

How Is a PFAS Settlement Calculated?

Several factors influence the compensation you may receive in a PFAS contamination lawsuit:

  • The severity of injuries or health issues resulting from PFAS exposure.
  • The level of negligence exhibited by responsible parties.
  • The potential applicability of workers’ compensation if exposure occurred on the job.
