Did you or a loved one work, live or were exposed to water at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987?

Were you pregnant or breastfeeding during this time at Camp Lejeune? Depending on the duration of your employment, residence, or exposure at Camp Lejeune, you may have a monetary claim for compensation.

From the mid-1950s through 1987, Marines and their loved ones at Camp Lejeune drank, used, and showered in water contaminated with VOC’s and other toxins at concentrations of hundreds to more than 3,000 times the permitted safety levels.

Direct orders to safely dispose of harmful solvents and chemicals were ignored and the solvents were dumped on the base contaminating the base’s drinking wells. The government knew the wells were contaminated with VOCs for nearly 20 years and did not make this information public.

Because of the groundwater contamination former Marines and their loved ones may suffer from cancer, leukemia, miscarriages, and birth defects all of which can be caused by VOCs in drinking water.

To make things right with veterans and their loved ones who worked or lived at Camp Lejeune, Congress and the President passed The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022.

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 allows for the recovery of money damages for veterans and their loved ones who can prove that exposure to water at Camp Lejeune likely caused their injury or illness such as cancer, leukemia, or birth defect.

The time to file a claim under The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 is limited so veterans and their families must act as soon as possible. Claims will be denied if they are not made in time. If you believe you or a loved one suffered injuries or illness from being exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, call us for a free consultation.
