Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Health Issues Lawsuits

Updated by Jeffrey S. Glassman June 2022

The United States Congress has recently passed The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022. This Act allows individuals, including service members and veterans, who resided, worked or were otherwise exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina to seek financial compensation for injuries and illnesses suffered as a result of the exposure.

This Act applies to individuals who were:

  • exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987;
  • exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days; and
  • diagnosed with an injuries and illnesses as a result of the exposure.

Under this Act, you have a two-year window to file a claim for damages against the United States Government.

If you lived, worked or served at Marine Corps Base Camp in North Carolina during this time period, you may have had contact with contaminants in the drinking water there. Scientific and medical evidence has shown an association between exposure to these contaminants during military service and development of certain diseases later on. If you have qualifying service at Camp Lejeune and a current diagnosis of one of the conditions listed below, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.

Possible Injuries Associated With Water Contamination:
  • ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Lung Cancer
  • Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Other Cancers
  • Other Diseases and Injuries

If you or a loved one worked or served at the Camp Lejeune location between August 1953 and December 1987 and you later developed serious health conditions, you may be eligible for compensation. You need the help of an experienced toxic tort attorney to help get the compensation you deserve.
