    Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Claims

    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WATER AT CAMP LEJEUNE?

    In 1985 ground water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune was found to contain dangerous levels of toxic chemicals. It was determined that from 1953 to 1987 servicemembers, contractors, civilians, and their families consumed tap water containing toxic chemicals with concentrations at levels 240-3400 times the permitted safety standards. It is estimated that over one million individuals were exposed to these toxins known to cause numerous serious health conditions, including cancer.

    Multiple forms of cancer have been linked to the substances found in the water at Camp Lejeune, including:

    • Brain cancer
    • Leukemia
    • Thyroid cancer
    • Kidney cancer
    • Esophageal cancer
    • Lung cancer
    • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
    • Liver cancer
    • Multiple myeloma
    • Bladder cancer

    Other diseases and medical conditions have been linked to these toxins, such as:

    • Cardiac defects
    • Aplastic anemia
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • Hepatic steatosis (fatty liver syndrome)
    • Scleroderma
    • Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
    • Nephrotoxicity
    • Neurobehavioral disorders

    Fertility issues, miscarriages, and birth defects were also caused by the toxins in the water at Camp Lejeune.

    WHAT MEDICAL CONDITIONS ARE LINKED TO TOXIC WATER?
    WHAT IS BEING DONE TO HELP?

    The Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which has been signed into law by President Biden, will provide the exposed individuals and their family members a legal claim for compensation for their injuries, including wrongful death. These cases will be handled exclusively by the Federal Courts in eastern North Carolina.

    Anyone who worked, lived, or served at Camp Lejeune or MCAS New River from August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, for a minimum of thirty cumulative days and has a related medical condition has a claim. This includes veterans, military personnel, civilians and their family members who were exposed to this toxic water.
