Justice For Victims Of Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
In the early 1950s, the drinking water on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina, became contaminated with dozens of toxic chemicals, many of them carcinogens. The contamination wasn’t discovered until the 1980s. As a result, those who lived or worked on base between 1953 and 1987 may have been exposed and suffered long-term health consequences such as:
- Cancer (many kinds)
- Birth defects
- Liver and kidney damage
- Parkinson’s disease
- Neurological problems
Sadly, for many people, the exposure led to fatal consequences.

Limited Time Is Available To File A Claim
If you or a loved one lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least a month between the 1950s and 1980s, you may have a claim for compensation. Likewise, if your mother lived or worked on base and was pregnant with you during that time, you may also be eligible.
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which was passed as part of honoring the new PACT Act of 2022, will allow people to bring lawsuits and pursue financial benefits for the harm they suffered from water contamination at Camp Lejeune. It will provide a limited window of opportunity for victims to seek relief. Because of the short time frame involved, it’s important to contact us immediately. Our lawyers can review your situation to determine whether you have a claim. If so, we can do the legwork to ensure that we are well-positioned to file a claim for you as soon as the window opens.
