PFAS Lawyer

In recent years, you may have heard about PFAS lawsuits, or been in an industry where exposure to high levels of PFAS has caused concern and the involvement of PFAS lawsuit lawyers.

Every American is exposed to some level of PFAS – per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances – as a result of drinking water contaminated with PFAS or using consumer products that contain PFAS. They are known as “forever chemicals” and are found in clothing, cookware, cosmetics, electronics, firefighting foam, packaging, and many other products.

In fact, according to The Pew Charitable Trusts, these chemicals are so prevalent they’re found in the blood of 97 percent of Americans.

The problem with these chemicals lies in the fact that can’t naturally break down, so they end up accumulating in water, soil, and even in your blood. Unfortunately, studies have shown that high levels of PFAS can lead to an increased risk of cancer, among other alarming health issues.

As the adverse health effects of PFAS exposure are studied more and more, lawsuits from this exposure have increased. More than 1,200 PFAS lawsuits were filed in 2021, according to Bloomberg Law, and new lawsuits against PFAS manufacturers are being filed frequently.

If you or a loved one suspect that you were affected by PFAS exposure, alongside contacting a doctor for testing and evaluation, you should consider contacting a lawyer to determine your legal rights. You may be eligible to file a claim or join in a PFAS class action lawsuit, and the skilled attorneys at Phillips Law Group can review your case to determine your next steps.
