If you or someone you love lived or worked near the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 and suffered serious health problems, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
Service members, their families, and civilian employees living at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina from 1953 to 1987 were drinking and bathing in water with toxic concentrations of chemicals between 240 and 3,400 times higher than safety standards.
Some estimates suggest one million Marines, their families, and civilian workers were exposed to trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), benzene, and vinyl chloride. All are known carcinogens (cancer-causing chemicals) and are extremely dangerous to human health, including unborn children.
Exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune for as little as 30 days has produced devastating side effects in generations of people in the area. Side effects include multiple cancers, infertility, miscarriage, infant death, and serious birth defects.
Please contact us immediately if you believe you were affected by the tragic mistakes that led to you or someone you care about suffering after living in the Camp Lejeune area.
The Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act was passed on August 10, 2022. According to President Biden, the law will expand access to health care and disability benefits for veterans harmed by toxic exposure and is “the most significant law our nation has ever passed” to support veterans.
Now our team is here to stand against the disastrous handling of dangerous chemicals that led to the suffering of generations of Marines, their families, and the entire support staff around Camp Lejeune. This health crisis is heartbreaking, and we want to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Victims and their families who spent as few as 30 days in or around North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune — regardless of where they live now — deserve compensation for the pain and heartache they’ve suffered. If you’re considering exploring your legal options, know that you have friends at our law firm.
The PACT Act, and the included Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022, is the government’s way of accepting responsibility for the mishandling of dangerous chemicals on the Camp Lejeune Marine Base that harmed countless veterans and their loved ones.
