The U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp in Lejeune, North Carolina was established in 1942. Nearly 40 years later, it was found that two on-base water wells at Camp Lejeune were contaminated with several chemicals that have been scientifically linked to a wide range of illnesses, injuries, and disorders.
The source of the contamination was linked to leaking underground storage tanks, the waste disposal practices of nearby businesses, and industrial area spills.
The community that was exposed to this contaminated water used it every day for drinking, bathing, and cooking. Over time, this led to significant adverse health effects on people of all ages, including infants, children, unborn babies, and adults. The chemicals found in the Camp Lejeune water can lead to a wide range of cancers, illnesses, and disorders, including, but not limited to:
The CDC estimates that as many as one million military service members, civilian staff, and their families may have been exposed to the contaminated water. Anyone who lived, worked, or was stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina from August 1st, 1953 through December 31, 1987 and was diagnosed with a serious illness may be eligible to file a claim. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act provides a streamlined process to seek compensation from the U.S. government. However, having a lawyer on your side is important for victims. A lawyer can help collect evidence, accurately calculate your damages, and work to ensure that your claim is valid and you recover the full amount of compensation you are eligible for.
