About the Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
For over 35 years, residents, employees, and visitors of Camp Lejeune were potentially exposed to toxic chemicals in the public water on base. These dangerous contaminants, including benzene, vinyl chloride, perchloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), and other compounds, have been linked to the development of a variety of diseases including cancers, birth defects, and serious neurological conditions.
Previously, members of the United States military who served at the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) or the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune were unable to obtain compensation for damages due to a Supreme Court precedent that typically protects the federal government from legal action in these scenarios. Now, a new law is paving a path to justice for individuals who unknowingly drank, bathed in, and inhaled water containing chemical levels 200-300 times higher than permitted by current safety regulations.
You and your family members deserve justice. Call (800) 785-6861 or contact us online to get started on your claim.
