Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Attorneys

Camp Lejeune military veterans and their families exposed to the camp’s contaminated drinking water between August 1, 1953 and Dec. 31, 1987 may qualify for compensation.

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act on March 3, 2022. The Act was part of legislation aimed to improve benefits for veterans and their families exposed to toxins. The “Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022” then passed the U.S. Senate on June 15, 2022; so that injured Marines, Seabees, and their families may at last be able to seek justice for exposure to Camp Lejeune’s toxic water.

U.S. Government knew Camp Lejeune Water was Contaminated

U.S. Government officials knew for decades that water was contaminated at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. They nevertheless failed to address the problem. From 1953 to 1987, those who lived on, worked in, or visited the base and drank the water, or cooked or bathed in it, did so at serious risk to their health.

Our law firm is investigating cases for people who lived or worked on the Camp Lejeune Base for at least 30 days between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987 (either military or family of military who lived with the military person based there) and received an honorable discharge.

Qualifying Injuries for the Camp Lejeune Settlement

Those exposed to Camp Lejeune water who were later diagnosed with one of the following health problems may have a case:

  • Adult leukemia 
  • Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes 
  • Bladder cancer 
  • Kidney cancer 
  • Liver cancer 
  • Multiple myeloma 
  • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma 
  • Parkinson’s disease 
  • Esophageal Cancer 
  • Breast Cancer 
  • Renal Toxicity 
  • Scleroderma 
  • Lung Cancer

Legal Changes on the Horizon

Because the recent bill passing through the House and Senate, it may soon be possible to file a claim over Camp Lejeune’s contaminated water. If Biden now signs the Act into law, as he is expected to do, Marines, Seabees, and their family members, along with civilians and government contractors who spent time on the LeJeune base for at least 30 days between 1953 and 1987, might be able to receive financial awards if they suffer from one of the serious illnesses listed above.

Camp Lejeune History

Opened in 1942, the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is home to II Marine Expeditionary Force, 2nd Marine Division, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, and a naval hospital. Some 150,000 people currently live on the base and in the surrounding community. An estimated one million people have lived or passed through Camp Lejeune between August 1953 and December 1987. Hundreds of thousands of veterans, their families, and workers who lived off base at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina were exposed to the toxic chemicals that have been scientifically linked to serious health concerns.
