In Jacksonville, North Carolina, there is a base for the US Marine Corps known as Camp Lejeune. The base’s drinking water was tainted from 1953 to 1987 by hazardous chemical substances such trichloroethylene (TCE), benzene, perchloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, and others.
Over the period of more than 30 years, estimates set the number of persons impacted by the water poisoning at Camp Lejeune at over 1 million. This comprises base personnel, both military and civilian, as well as their families (including kids and unborn infants).
For many years, the federal government disputed that it was to blame for the high number of serious illnesses that Camp Lejeune residents and employees from the 1950s to the 1980s suffered from. Veterans, former Camp Lejeune residents, and Camp Lejeune employees are still experiencing the aftereffects of the toxic exposure decades later as cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and other illnesses are being discovered in these individuals.
The Honoring Our PACT Act, which includes the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, was approved on August 8, 2022. Bypassing North Carolina’s unjust legal loopholes, this law will give those harmed by the Camp Lejeune water poisoning and their families long-overdue options for pursuing redress. Please call (919) 785-5000 for a free case evaluation if you formerly resided or worked at Camp Lejeune and were subsequently diagnosed with a condition connected to hazardous exposure there.
