Did You Develop An Illness After Living Near An Airport Or Military Base?
Airports and military bases frequently use chemicals known as perfluoroalkoxy alkanes, or PFAs, that result in life-altering medical conditions if used or ingested. Tragically, the water sources near hundreds of airports and military bases across the United States likely have contamination from PFAs and other hazardous materials such as firefighting foam. If you worked or lived near an airport or military base and developed certain medical conditions, your illness may be the result of contaminated water.
For more than 25 years, our trial lawyers at Kelley Ferraro, LLC have fought aggressively for the rights of people harmed by toxins, including those contaminating sources of water. From our law office in Ohio, our attorneys work with clients around the country to help them hold those responsible for their illnesses accountable, recover compensation for their losses and prevent similar incidents from harming other innocent people. In our practice, we have handled nearly 45,000 cases and recovered multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts.
A Threat To People In Ohio And Throughout The Country
Contaminated water affects people in every state in the U.S. In Ohio alone, there are at least nine known airports and military bases with contaminated water:
- Air Force Plant 85, Columbus
- Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center – Newton Falls

- Newark Air Force Base, Heath
- Rickenbacker Air Force Base (formerly), now Rickenbacker International Airport, near Columbus in Franklin County

How Do You Know If You Are A Victim?
Research has linked PFAs and firefighting foam to a spectrum of devastating illnesses, such as ulcerative colitis and the following types of cancer:
You could be a victim of a contaminated water supply if you developed one or more of these conditions and you lived on or near an airport or a military base such as Camp LeJeune – even if you did not reside there long-term. However, to have an actionable claim, you must have received your diagnosis after January 1, 2000, due to the statute of limitations for these types of claims.
