SM&B represents people and municipal entities who have been harmed by AFFF/PFAS, including:
- Individuals who lived near a military base where AFFF was used
- Individuals who have been notified by their water provider that PFAS was detected in the water supply
- Firefighters who used AFFF in training or live fire emergencies
- Municipal water providers who have to remediate their water systems due to PFAS contamination
This is a significant nationwide problem affecting the water quality for millions of Americans. Our involvement in this litigation will last for many years as we fight to get PFAS out of America’s water system and return local drinking water supplies to their clean and healthy original state.
Led by partner Larry Cohan, SM&B represents victims of AFFF/PFAS exposure who are suffering from:
- Kidney cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Thyroid disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Other serious medical conditions and cancers
We pursue claims against the manufacturers of the AFFF and manufacturers of the PFAS chemicals used in AFFF.
Larry is one of a handful of attorneys appointed by the court to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the Federal Court AFFF Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in South Carolina. This litigation includes thousands of lawsuits that were originally filed across the country against the 3M Company, Dupont, and other manufacturers seeking damages for the widespread harm caused by the use of AFFF/PFAS.
In addition, Mr. Cohan serves on the executive committee for the class action lawsuit for medical monitoring on behalf of residents in Bucks and Montgomery counties affected by PFAS contamination.
Larry Cohan has committed his career to fighting on behalf of people injured by the wrongdoing or negligence of companies.
As it has become clear that there is a probable link between AFFF/PFAS exposure and kidney cancer, thyroid disease, testicular cancer, and ulcerative colitis, Mr. Cohan and his team have responded by fighting on behalf of people who have been injured, advocating for clean water for all of us and making sure the companies who polluted our water and sold dangerous products are held accountable.
If you are suffering from kidney cancer, testicular cancer, thyroid disease or ulcerative colitis because of exposure to AFFF/PFAS, SM&B is committed to obtaining the results you need and deserve.
