Our lawyers never charge a legal fee unless we win your case. Between August, 1953 and December, 1987, the drinking water at the Camp Lejeune United States Marine Corps base in Jacksonville, North Carolina may have been contaminated with toxic chemicals that can cause multiple types of cancer, including birth defects, Parkinson’s disease, and more.

From 1953 to December, 1987, nearly 1 million civilian workers, military service members, and their family members were potentially exposed to these toxic chemicals, and because of a new law, they may all be able to receive compensation from the Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Lawsuit.

The toxic contamination primarily resulted from leaking underground storage tanks, as well as oil and other wastes disposed of improperly, according to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). From 1982 to 1984, the Navy began an environmental cleanup of Camp Lejeune, and as part of the effort, water wells near the known contaminated sites were tested. From 1985 to 1987, the United States Marine Corps began the process of removing contaminated wells from service, and the process took until December 31, 1987 to complete.

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act was approved on August 2, 2022, and with the passing of this legislation, veterans, their families, and civilians who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune from 1953 to 1987, for 30 or more days, and developed certain health conditions are now able to file Camp Lejeune lawsuits for financial compensation for lost wages, medical costs, and pain and suffering. Those who had loved ones die as a result of an illness linked to the toxins in Camp Lejeune’s water may also be able to file a lawsuit.
