From 1953 to 1987, the drinking water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina may have been contaminated with dangerous chemicals that can cause cancer and other serious health issues.
Our attorneys are accepting case referrals and talking with injured military personnel, their family members and other civilians who suffered serious injuries including many types of cancers and other serious illness due to this contamination.
Harmful chemicals were found in two on-base water treatment plants that supplied drinking water to Camp Lejeune facilities. From 1953 to 1987, almost a million veterans, their families and civilian workers were potentially exposed to these toxic chemicals at the Camp Lejeune military base.
Those exposed to the contaminated water may be at a high risk for developing serious illness, including (but not limited to)
If you or a close family member lived at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987 for longer than 30 days and developed health problems from toxic water at the base, a new law is giving you an opportunity to seek compensation from the U.S. government.
In August 2022, the U.S. government passed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022, which was part of the PACT Act. These Acts, signed into law by President Biden, establish a two-year timeframe from the date of the law’s enactment for those who were exposed to contaminated drinking water on the military base to file a lawsuit.
Because of this new law, those who were exposed can now seek compensation for serious injuries and illness they may have suffered.
Anyone who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987 may now be entitled to compensation for a Camp Lejeune lawsuit..
As you can see, exposure to the contaminated water can cause a range of serious health conditions. If you are suffering any of these symptoms and were exposed to contaminated Camp Lejeune drinking water, we recommend you schedule an appointment with your doctor.
The water at Camp Lejeune showed the presence of the following toxic chemicals (called volatile organic compounds or VOCs) and were supplied by certain water treatment plants at Camp Lejeune. These compounds have been classified as either carcinogenic or probably carcinogenic.
The contaminated water was provided to the barracks, family housing, schools, hospitals and other buildings on base, putting nearly a million military service members, civilian workers and their families at risk of potentially severe health issues.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs created a map to indicate the area that was affected by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.
