What You Need to Know About Camp Lejeune’s Water Contamination
Did you work or reside at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 consecutive days between August 1953 and December 1988? If you answered yes to that question, you could qualify to receive compensation due to the consumption of contaminated drinking water present at the site during the specified time. Additionally, children who were in utero during the time parents’ were presence at Camp LeJeune could qualify for compensation. The water contamination discovered at Camp Lejeune is likely to have been a major contributor to negative health issues experienced in those who resided at this North Carolina U.S. Marine Corps base from 1953 to 1988?
Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 – Providing the Compensation YOU deserve!
The recently passed PACT Act affects YOU! Throughout the years since 1988, the truth about Camp Lejeune’s contaminated water has been exposed, and many veterans, employees from the base, and their families are coming to terms with the fact that a myriad of health conditions were related to tainted water that could have been prevented.
During the aforementioned span of years, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) from cleaners, dry-cleaning solvents, and approximately 70 other hazardous chemicals were being released into the water at Camp Lejeune. Those who were living and/or working on the base were exposed to these dangerous toxins every time they took a drink, brushed their teeth, showered, or simply washed their hands. Over time, exposure to these chemicals has been linked to:
- Leukemia (including Acute Myeloid Leukemia or AML)
- Bladder Cancer
- Brain Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Central Nervous System Cancer (CNS)
- Cervical Cancer
- Esophageal Cancer
- Kidney Cancer
- Liver Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Myelodysplastic Syndromes
- Multiple Myeloma
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Ovarian Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Rectal Cancer
- Cardiac defect
- Fatty Liver Disease (Hepatic Steatosis)
- Female Infertility
- Kidney Damage
- Immune Disorders
- Nerve Damage
- Neurobehavioral effects
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Renal Toxicity
and possibly even more serious (and sometimes fatal) health conditions. Unfortunately, families have gone for years without compensation or assistance for their suffering at the hands of those who failed to do their part in protecting the servicemen/servicewomen and others who lived on base…until now. With the passing of this new legislation, individuals and/or their loved ones who have been impacted by this can file a claim under the Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit. Not only can individuals now have the opportunity to receive disability benefits related to their exposure to these chemicals, but they could also be eligible for compensation for the suffering they’ve endured since their exposure.
