PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are a group of man-made chemicals that have been used in a variety of products, including nonstick cookware, water-repellent clothing, carpets, upholstery, food packaging, and firefighting foams. Some PFAS chemicals can stay in the environment and in the human body for many years.
Exposure to PFAS has been linked to various health problems, such as cancer, liver damage, and thyroid problems. In recent years, a number of PFAS cancer lawsuits have been filed against companies that use PFAS in their products.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer and you think it may be related to PFAS exposure, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the companies that manufactured or used the chemicals. An experienced attorney can help you evaluate your claim and determine whether you are eligible to file a PFAS cancer lawsuit.
Why are PFAS cancer lawsuits filed?
PFAS cancer lawsuits are filed by individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer and believe that their illness is the result of exposure to PFAS (per and polyfluoroalkyl substances).
These PFAS cancer lawsuits allege that companies that manufactured or used PFAS chemicals knew or should have known about the risks that may be associated with the chemicals, but failed to warn the public or take adequate steps to protect workers and consumers.
