Camp Lejeune Justice Act Injury Claim Attorneys
Over One Million Military Service Personnel and Families May Have Been Exposed To Toxic Tap Water
Recently, Congress passed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which paves the way for those exposed to toxic tap water at Camp Lejeune to seek compensation.
The Act applies to individuals exposed to tap water at the Marine Corps Base in North Carolina between 1953 and 1987 and who have suffered serious health issues or death as a result. If you or someone you know was exposed and is considering bringing a case, we can help. Our attorneys can guide your case through the proper channels during the limited time available to make a claim, which is two years from the day the Act is signed.
For more than 30 years, the Marines and their families at Camp Lejeune, as well as civilians, reservists and others who worked there, ingested, bathed in, cooked with, and were otherwise exposed to dangerous and harmful chemicals. The Act applies to anyone, military or civilian, who lived, worked, or was born at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987. The person must have been exposed to the water for at least 30 days during that period and diagnosed with one of the below serious health conditions.
The Centers for Disease Control discovered in 2014 that the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune significantly increased the chances of developing many serious diseases and conditions including:
- Adult leukemia
- Aplastic anemia
- Birth defect
- Bladder cancer
- Bone marrow cancer and other conditions
- Breast cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Liver cancer
- Multiple myeloma
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Neurobehavioral effect
- Parkinson’s disease
- Renal toxicity
Unfortunately, despite their service to our country, our military members and their families are often the least cared for and protected. The federal government knew about the toxic substances through multiple channels and ignored this information. Now is the time to seek justice.
