In the next week, President Biden will likely sign the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 into law. This law potentially extends compensation to anyone with identified conditions who spent 30 total days at Camp Lejeune from 1953 to 1987.

NOTE: This is not just for Veterans.

If you were stationed or worked at the U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, we must inform you of the potential dangers you and your family were exposed to. From 1953 to 1987 the Marines, Sailors, and their families who lived at Camp Lejeune were exposed to TCE and other dangerous chemicals in their tap water. Water testing found that drinking water sources at Camp Lejeune were contaminated with benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene, or perchloroethylene (PCE), and vinyl chloride (VC), all of which are known to be carcinogenic or harmful to humans. A significant portion of this community have suffered severe health consequences, such as cancers caused by exposure to these dangerous toxins.

Officials were aware of water contamination on Camp Lejeune but never addressed the problem. For decades, the veterans and families that resided or worked at Camp Lejeune and subsequently developed cancer or a life threatening disease have been denied justice. Until recently, injured service members and their families have not been able to seek damages for their injuries. Attorneys, alongside your state representatives, have worked hard to pass a bill that would provide service members and their families the compensation they deserve.

If you were stationed at or lived on Camp Lejeune, North Carolina as a Marine or family member or had a parent or loved one that lived there between 1953 and 1987 and has developed a serious health condition like the ones listed below, there may be compensation available for the victims or their families.
