Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

Two of Camp Lejeune’s water supply systems were contaminated with high levels of toxic chemicals between Aug. 1, 1953, and Dec. 31, 1987. Many of these chemicals have been linked by medical and scientific evidence to various dire health conditions, including several types of cancers. 

Certain laws have prohibited individuals from filing lawsuits involving water contamination at Camp Lejeune — for instance, when exposure occurred too many years ago — thereby shielding the responsible parties from liability and unjustifiably preventing those harmed from obtaining relief. However, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 carves out an exception to those laws, providing both military and non-military individuals with a route for relief. Once passed, those exposed to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune will be able to file a claim for compensation against the U.S. government.

If you or someone you know has suffered harm after being exposed to contaminated water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, you may be entitled to relief. Skilled and experienced attorneys at Nachawati Law Group are available and ready to help.
