How Much Could I Get in a PFAS Settlement?
The compensation you could recover in a PFAS lawsuit depends on the type and severity of your illness. However, some of the recoverable damages our lawyers could seek on your behalf include compensation for:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost wages
- Past and future pain and suffering (both mental and physical)
- Punitive damages (if applicable)
How Could I be Exposed to PFAS?
People living near sites where a release of PFAS has occurred may be exposed to contaminated air, soil, or drinking water. You may also be exposed via consumer products including food packaging, stain-resistant carpeting and upholstery, and water-repellent clothing.
Eating food grown or raised in PFAS-contaminated soil or water, including agricultural products, wild game, and fish may also increase your exposure. Babies born to mothers who were exposed to PFAS can be exposed in the womb, while breastfeeding, or while drinking formula mixed with contaminated water.
People who work with or around PFAS (i.e. manufacturing chemicals or using AFFF fire-fighting foam) may breathe in PFAS.
