Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit

In North Carolina, Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base is home to over 34,000 people. It is the largest Marine Corps base on the East Coast, which means it is integral for Marine expeditions. The Camp Lejeune water contamination from 1957 through 1987 led to links between the contamination and serious illness in residents.

The contamination is believed to have come from both on and off of the Marine base. Much of the contamination came specifically from an off-base dry cleaner business, however, this business was open before the base itself opened. Therefore, it is likely that the water wells were already contaminated when Camp Lejeune opened.

Medical and Scientific tests have shown evidence that exposure to these toxins during military service and the development of diseases at a later time were associated with the contaminants in the water in Camp Lejeune.

If you or a loved one have served, lived, or worked at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune or Marine Corps Air Station New River in North Carolina for 30 days or more, you may have been exposed or had contact with toxins such as Trichloroethylene (TCE), Perchloroethylene (PCE), Benzene, Vinyl chloride, and other compounds.
