PFAS

Litigation

PFAS, or per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, are a class of man-made chemicals with over 7,000 individual synthetic compounds found in hundreds of consumer products. Within the last 10 years, questions began to arise regarding possible health effects of these compounds on human health. Scientific studies, medical journal publications, and federal regulatory action soon followed, with a very recent explosion in states stepping in to try to regulate and enforce PFAS issues at the state level.
