CAMP LEJEUNE TOXIC WATER HELPLINE:
Camp Lejeune represents the worst contamination of a public water system in American history. From 1953 to 1987 the water supply at the Marine Corps base at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina was contaminated with dangerously high levels of carcinogenic chemicals. Marines, their families, and people who worked at Camp Lejeune drank and bathed in water contaminated with more than 70 chemicals and toxins at levels 240 to 3400 times permitted by safety standards.In 2013, the Centers for Disease Control’s Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry released the findings of a study first started in 2003. The study concluded that children born to mothers who drank the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune were four times more likely to suffer birth defects, such as spina bifida. These babies also had a slightly elevated risk of childhood cancers, such as leukemia.
In September 2012, 12 pounds of elemental mercury were found at the Hadnot Point Water Treatment Plant at Camp Lejeune. The water plant was offline for several weeks to clean up the mercury. Officials believe that the possible source of the mercury contamination was water pressure meters containing elemental mercury that were removed from the plant in the 1980s.
A new law - the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 - is designed to allow for water contamination lawsuits from victims despite the statute of limitations that otherwise barred a Camp Lejeune lawsuit.
This toxic water did not create just a theoretical risk of harm. Scientific and medical evidence has shown undeniably that exposure to this contaminated water while living or working at Camp Lejeune caused thousands to develop cancer, birth defects, and other conditions.
Sadly, the law in North Carolina had blocked these Camp Lejeune victims from bringing cancer lawsuits and other claims against the government. Now, however, the U.S. Senate has passed a new federal law that will enable victims of water contamination at Camp Lejeune to file claims and get financial compensation.
If you or a loved one resided at Camp Lejeune between 1953-1987 and were later diagnosed with:
You may be entitled to significant compensation.
There are time deadlines to file a claim so don’t wait – act now.
