Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
If you lived at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina for at least thirty days from August 1, 1953 to December 31, 1987, you may have been exposed to contaminated groundwater. If at any point you had become ill due to this exposure, you may be entitled to compensation.
What happened to the water at Camp Lejeune?
For decades, officials at this U.S. Marine Corps base were aware of contamination issues but never addressed them. The water supply was heavily tainted with volatile organic compounds, fed by leaking underground storage tanks, industrial area spills, and poor waste disposal practices.
When officials failed to correct the issue, the fallout was catastrophic. Military employees and their families suffered death and chronic illness – even extending to babies in utero. All of whom may have a case if the following criteria is met.
