For decades, those working and living at the U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina unknowingly drank and bathed in toxic contaminated water. The poisoned water has been linked to deaths, serious illnesses, and long-standing health complications among the residents of Camp Lejeune, while senior military leaders are alleged to have known about the problems with the water.
Those who have been affected can now seek justice and financial compensation for their losses caused by the concealment of this vital information regarding the status of the water. The attorneys at Hodge & Langley Law Firm are ready to assist with your case.
Our experienced personal injury lawyers will help you to seek the compensation that you and your family deserve. Call (864) 585-3873 for a free consultation.
It has been discovered that toxic chemicals were leaked into the water supply at Camp Lejeune from 1953 to 1987. These poisonous toxins included dry-cleaning chemicals, benzene, and other dangerous solvents linked to various cancers as well as serious chronic conditions such as spina bifida in unborn babies, Parkinson’s disease, renal toxicity, and aplastic anemia.
The contamination extended to three separate on-base groundwater systems including Holcomb Boulevard, Hadnot Point, and Tarawa Terrace. Exposure to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune by means of bathing, drinking, or cooking has resulted in detrimental health effects. Hundreds of thousands of military personnel, their families, and civilian employees stationed at Camp Lejeune during the years of contamination may have been exposed to life-threatening illnesses.
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 provides a two-year window for those who were exposed to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune before December 31, 1987 to file claims for compensation. This Act also makes provision for the families of those who died from the poisoned water to file wrongful death lawsuits for compensation.
