Lawsuits Over Toxic Water at Camp Lejeune

In the early 1980s, the Marine Corp discovered  Perchloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE), along with other hazardous chemicals, in the drinking water at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Thousands of military men, women and their families may have been exposed to these illness-causing contaminants while stationed there. Since then, allegations began surfacing about the base, and in 2009 the federal government initiated investigations into these claims.

As of this year, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act was passed to provide damages for past injuries from the toxic water at Camp Lejeune. The USMC is accepting these claims. Veterans and civilians stationed at this base who developed severe illnesses from contact with contaminants are qualified to file these claims.

If you or someone you know developed cancer or a chronic condition after being stationed at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987, you may be eligible for compensation.
