August 10, 2022 marks the day the President signed the PACT Act into law. This allowed military personnel and their families who were seriously injured years ago by contaminated water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune to bring legal claims for compensation.
Specifically, the Act allows military veterans to file civil lawsuits against the U.S. Government for harm caused by at least thirty days of exposure to the toxic water at the Base from August 1, 1953 to December 31, 1987.
Drinking water from two of the eight wells at U.S. Marine Core Base Camp Lejeune were contaminated with high levels of harmful chemicals known to cause cancer and other serious illnesses between 1953 to 1987. Anyone who lived or worked at the base during this time may have been exposed to the toxic water and unknowingly put at risk for cancer or other serious medical conditions.
“Four years had elapsed during which Marines, their spouses and their children drank, bathed and cooked with what scientists believe to be some of the most contaminated water in the United States.” (Source: Camp Lejeune Water Contamination History)
For years, military personnel, their families and others who worked at the base were unaware of their exposure to these toxic chemicals. Access to medical care for these water-related illnesses was granted to all Veterans for qualifying medical conditions in 2012. However, those exposed to the Camp Lejeune water contamination were prevented by law from filing a claim against the marines.
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act gives those harmed by the water contamination the right to file a claim for the first time against the U.S. Government.
Anyone who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987 may eligible to file a Camp Lejeune lawsuit. This includes:
