Helping Victims Of Water Contamination Illnesses At Camp Lejeune
If you or a family member lived, worked or were stationed at the Marine base at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina between 1953 and 1987, you may need immediate legal representation. Due to contaminated water on the base during those years, many veterans, their family members, civilians and visitors have developed cancers or other serious and potentially fatal illnesses.
Approximately one million people drank, bathed in and used toxic water while the government covered up the truth about the contamination. Deadly toxins from an underground fuel tank and a local dry cleaning business at the base leaked into the water supply for over 30 years. All those residing and serving Camp Lejeune were drinking water under the presumption that the water was safe.
New Law Will Give Victims A Chance For Compensation
U.S. Congress is reviewing federal legislation, which may be signed into law by this fall. The law, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, will allow those who have been harmed by the contaminated water to obtain compensation for their losses. You may be entitled to compensation if you lived, worked or spent time at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1957, and December 31, 1987, and have been diagnosed with any of the following medical conditions:
- Bladder cancer
- Breast cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Liver cancer
- Lung cancer
- Aplastic anemia
- Hepatic steatosis
- Multiple myeloma
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Parkinson’s disease
