Camp Lejeune’s toxic water may have caused cancer and other serious health problems
Anyone that was harmed by exposure to toxic water
Those who lived or worked at the U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, were potentially exposed to drinking water contaminated with industrial solvents, benzene, and other toxic chemicals. Anyone that was harmed by exposure to toxic water at Camp Lejeune in that period may be eligible for compensation, including children who were in utero or born at the military base.
Water from treatment plants that supplied Camp Lejeune was contaminated by toxic chemicals believed to cause birth defects, cancer, and other life-altering diseases. The government has acknowledged the contamination of the drinking water on the base. In 2022 Congress passed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act (CLJA), allowing Camp Lejeune water contamination victims to sue the United States government for damages
Those who were present at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina for 30 cumulative days between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, and diagnosed with one of the many health conditions, cancers, or illnesses linked to exposure may be eligible to file a claim under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. You do not need to be a veteran or have served in the Marines to file a claim. Veterans from other branches, contract workers, family members, and civilian workers who meet the requirements may move forward with administrative or legal action.
Although it is impossible to estimate the average value of a claim, prior cases indicate that Camp Lejeune water contamination settlement amounts could be well over $1 million to as low as $25,000. This is speculation and not a guarantee concerning the outcome of a claim. The outcome of litigation is subject to factors that cannot always be foreseen.
