Contaminated Water Lawsuit

If you or a loved one lived or worked on base at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 consecutive days between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987 and developed a life-altering illness, your condition may have been caused by the water you were exposed to while residing there.

With the signing of the Honoring our PACT Act into law, victims that developed a disease or condition linked to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune have a limited time to file a claim and get the justice they deserve. The time to act is now.

OVERVIEW

Contaminated Water Discovered at Camp Lejeune

Between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, the water supplied to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina was severely contaminated with toxic chemicals. Consuming the hazardous water put those stationed there at high risk of developing life-altering illnesses or injuries. Anyone affected by this event has the right to pursue legal action for their pain and suffering.

Honoring our PACT Act is Signed into Law

On August 10, 2022, President Biden signed into law the Honoring our PACT Act, which includes the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022. The law allows those affected a chance to obtain full compensatory damages, including pain & suffering, permanent injury, emotional damages, loss of consortium, wrongful death, and other claims.

What went wrong at Camp Lejeune?

How did the water contamination occur?

For many years, the fires from training exercises were put out using AFFF, aqueous film-forming foam. This foam contains a group of toxic chemicals called per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). As the AFFF was washed away the foam and its chemicals seeped into the ground, nearby streams, and other sources of water used by the residents of Camp Lejeune.

What are PFAS?

PFAS, also referred to as “forever chemicals”, are made up of a group of manmade chemicals including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS). They inherited the nickname “forever chemicals” because they hardly ever break down in the environment and once in the body they can survive and accumulate for decades.

PFAS can be absorbed through direct ingestion from water for example or through the ingestion of food that has been exposed to the chemicals such as fish. They can also be absorbed through inhalation, directly through the skin, or passed from mother to fetus during pregnancy.
