Do you live in Florida and Suffer from Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
Were you or a loved one exposed to the toxic water at Camp Lejeune?
Did you live or work at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between August 1953 through December 1987? Due to contaminated drinking water, you may be entitled to compensation.
Children who were in utero during the time parents were stationed at Camp Lejeune could qualify for compensation too.
Officials have known of the contaminated water source at Camp Lejeune for many years, but the issue has never been addressed. The dirty water at this U.S. Marine Corps base caused many deaths and chronic illnesses among the men and women who worked there.
Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 – YOUR Opportunity to Receive the Compensation YOU deserve!
If you or a loved one were exposed to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, you have the right to seek legal redress thanks to the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act is a piece of legislation included in the Honoring Our PACT Act.
The new section of law provides former Camp Lejeune residents the opportunity to take legal action for the harm suffered from toxic water contamination by all individuals residing at the base between 1953 and 1987. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act would, in essence, take away the government’s immunity from lawsuits brought on behalf of military members who were hurt while serving. For years, Camp Lejeune residents were denied the chance to take legal action—despite being exposed to toxic water for decades—due to a unique provision in North Carolina law. The Act serves to correct this injustice.
Now, blaming is no longer an issue. What is important is that justice be served to those who were affected by Camp Lejeune’s contaminated water. Brooks Law Group will not stop until that goal is reached and justice is served to those who experienced health-related issues due to the toxic water.
It is our mission to help these victims get the compensation they justly deserve after living with contaminated drinking water for more than three decades.
Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit in Florida
In the 1980s, toxic chemicals were found in United State Marine Corps Camp Lejeune’s drinking water. The contamination was a result of improper disposal practices, which led to the release of chemicals into the groundwater. This eventually spread to wells that provided drinking water for residents living on base. This contamination resulted in a variety of health problems for many of the veterans who lived on base during this time period.
For example, an estimated thousands of gallons of trichloroethylene (TCE) were released into the groundwater at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1988. TCE is a known carcinogen and can cause liver damage, kidney failure, skin irritation, and cancer in humans.
The toxic chemicals that were found in the waters of Camp Lejeune are the following:
After years of denying any responsibility, the U.S. Department of Defense has finally recognized the health risks associated with contaminated water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. As a result, it shut down two wells at Camp Lejeune. The move came only after pressure from veterans, family members, and veteran advocacy groups.
Common Illnesses Related to Camp Lejeune’s Contaminated Water
Investigations conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have proven definitive evidence that veterans were drinking water that contained harsh chemicals for decades. Not only were they drinking this water, but they were bathing in it, washing their clothes in it, and cooking with it daily.
As a result, thousands of people have been exposed to these harsh substances, and many deaths have also occurred.
Research has shown a connection between these toxic contaminants and the development of certain diseases later. If you served or lived at Camp Lejeune and have one of these conditions and a related diagnosis, you may qualify for financial compensation. The health conditions are as follows:
