    With a New Law, Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Victims Finally Have Legal Recourse

    For more than 30 years, the drinking water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune was contaminated with a cocktail of dangerous toxins linked to cancer, leukemia, Parkinson’s disease and other serious medical conditions. Now after intense lobbying by veteran’s groups and others, victims of Camp Lejeune’s contaminated water have legal recourse for compensation.

    On Wednesday, the bi-partisan Honoring Our PACT Act of 2022 was signed into law. This law, which includes the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, allows veterans and their family members who developed cancer and other serious conditions to seek financial compensation from the federal government. Victims of water contamination at Camp Lejeune will have two years to file suit.

    RPWB lawyers represent Camp Lejeune water contamination victims and are investigating new cases. We are seeking veterans and their family members who spent at least 30 days at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987, and developed any of the following conditions: kidney cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia, liver cancer, bladder cancer, Parkinson’s disease or major cardiac birth defects. Our firm has a wealth of experience in representing veterans, including serving in leadership of the national 3M earplugs lawsuit. Please contact us for a free, no obligation case review to discuss your new legal options.

    What does this new Camp Lejeune water contamination law actually do?

    With the passage of the Honoring Our Pact ACT, the federal government acknowledges the health effects caused by decades of water contamination at Camp Lejeune and provides compensation to people who developed serious diseases after drinking the water at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987. The law allows victims to demand compensation, first in an administrative process and then in Federal Court in the Eastern District of North Carolina if the claim is not settled administratively.

    In addition to the new legal recourse for Camp Lejeune water victims, the Honoring Our PACT Act greatly expands the services provided by the VA to veterans harmed by toxic substances in other instances.

    What was in the water at Camp Lejeune?

    For three decades, routine water testing at Camp Lejeune showed unacceptable levels of toxins such as Benzene, Tetrachloroethylene (PCE), Trichloroethylene (TCE), Trans-1,2-dichloroethylene (DCE), and vinyl chloride. These substances are known to cause a host of medical problems, including: kidney cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia, liver cancer, bladder cancer, Parkinson’s disease or major cardiac birth defects. Many thousands of people bathed in and consumed this contaminated water while assigned to Camp Lejeune.
