Camp Lejeune Lawsuits

Camp Lejeune LawsuitFew things are more devastating than learning our government betrayed the brave men and women of the Marine Corp with full knowledge of the situation.

It is now admitted that from August 1, 1953 to December 31, 1987, our own U.S. Government knew that water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina was toxic. Yet they remained quiet, allowing those on base serving in the military, their dependents, and civilian contractors who worked there or lived in base housing, to suffer for decades from the effects of dangerous chemicals in the water. (*Even post 1987 injuries may qualify – please contact us if you were injured.)

Those who suffered from these deplorable conditions might be able to receive compensation, health and disability benefits, if they are diagnosed with cancer, Leukemia, neurological disorders or other illnesses caused by the toxic water at Camp Lejeune. Congress has now passed legislation to enable bringing a lawsuit against the United States for this callous treatment of individuals who were at Camp Lejeune.

The list of medical conditions caused by the toxic water contamination, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, includes the following (as litigation continues this list may be updated):
