Camp Lejeune Water Contamination


Representing Clients Nationwide

Veterans and Their Families Prepare to File Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Claims

Camp Lejeune is a United State Marine Corps base in North Carolina. For over three decades, between 1953 and 1987, the camp’s water supply was contaminated with toxic substances. The contamination resulted in exposure limits of up to 280 times over safe exposure limits. Millions of Marines, families, and civilian workers were exposed and may have developed life-altering, debilitating, and life-ending illnesses while serving their country.

The toxic water has affected thousands of families. Congress has drafted, and will soon pass, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which is included in the Sergeant First Class Robinson Honoring Our Pact Act. Once this Act is signed into law, veterans and their families may file claims against the Government. The claims seek to obtain compensation and justice for injuries or wrongful death caused by exposure to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.



Were you stationed, living, and/or working at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between 1953 and 1987?  If so, and if you have been diagnosed with one or more of the following diseases, then you may qualify for compensation.
