7 Questions You Should Ask Your Lawyer in an Aqueous Film Forming Foam Cancer Lawsuit

If you or a loved one is suffering from an AFFF cancer lawsuit, it’s important to know what questions to ask your lawyer. While there are no right or wrong answers, these will help guide your decision-making process:

  1. Why should I choose your law firm?

You should always choose the law firm with experience in your type of lawsuit. The more they know about the type of case you bring, the better they can help you.

  1. How long can it take to settle an AFFF cancer case?

As you can see, the length of time it takes to settle or successfully litigate an AFFF cancer case depends on various factors. It’s often difficult for plaintiffs and their lawyers to agree on a settlement because many factors determine how much money should be paid out in damages. However, if you have been diagnosed with cancer, your lawyer must work hard on your behalf—not just to get paid themselves! This is why we recommend that all clients ask questions like these before deciding whether or not they should hire an attorney to get help filing an AFFF cancer lawsuit.

  1. How much experience have you had with AFFF cancer claims?

One of the most important questions you should ask when hiring a lawyer is how many cases they’ve handled in the past. If they’ve had experience with AFFF cancer claims, this will allow you to feel more confident about their ability to handle your case.

  1. What kinds of settlements or verdicts have you obtained for your clients?

  • What kinds of settlements or verdicts have you obtained for your clients?
  • Your lawyer may be able to provide you with a list of successful cases. If this is the case, ask them to provide specific details: what happened in each trial, who was involved, how much money was at stake, and how it was paid out (if applicable).
  1. When can I expect to hear about the progress of my case?

You should expect to hear from your lawyer as soon as possible. If you don’t hear anything, it may be because they are busy and haven’t had time to get back to you yet. However, if there are any delays in getting back to you with information on the progress of your case (or lack thereof), try calling the office or emailing them again before going into panic mode!

  1. What costs will be involved in my potential claim?

When hiring a lawyer to represent you in an Aqueous Film Forming Foam Cancer lawsuit, you must understand the costs involved. These include legal and other expenses such as travel, deposition, and expert witness fees.

  1. Who can file a claim?

It would help if you asked your lawyer whether the cancer claims can be brought by:

  • The family members of deceased firefighters were exposed to AFFF (aqueous film-forming foam).
  • People who have been diagnosed with cancer don’t know if they were exposed to AFFF.
  • People exposed to the chemical itself have already been diagnosed with cancer.


We hope this article has helped you better understand your potential case and what you need to do next. As we discussed above, choosing an experienced lawyer will be the first step of your lawsuit process.
