Justice For Victims Of Camp Lejeune’s Toxic Water And Their Families
A new federal law called the Camp Lejeune Justice Act finally makes it possible for people who developed cancer from exposure to tainted water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune to seek compensation.
Decades Of Unclean Water Ignored By The Military, Government
From 1953 to 1987, the water at Camp Lejeune contained dangerous carcinogens at up to 280 times the recommended safety limits. These poisons were in the water people used to drink, bathe, and wash their dishes and clothing. Thousands of marines, their families, and civilian staff were exposed and eventually diagnosed with various forms of cancer.
Despite decades of health complications and tragic deaths, neither the military nor the federal government acknowledged responsibility — until now. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act allows anyone who lived or worked at the base for at least 30 days during the 1953-87 time period and suffered health effects as a result to file a claim against the U.S. government. Even if you received treatment from the Veterans Administration, you can still seek compensation.
Potential plaintiffs have two years from the date the law went into effect – Aug. 10, 2022 – to take action. To maximize the compensation you recover, working with an experienced attorney can be invaluable. The personal injury lawyers at The Mahoney Law Firm, P.C., are here to help you fight for justice.
