    Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Law Close to Passing, Would Finally Bring Justice to Veterans and their Families

    A bill that is close to becoming law could finally provide justice and financial relief to veterans and their families for health problems caused by water contamination at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.

    The bi-partisan Honoring our PACT Act of 2021 has passed both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. It was sent back to the House for an additional vote before heading to the President’s desk for his signature. If enacted into law, Congress would create a monetary fund for individuals who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune between August 1953 and December 1987 and can demonstrate they were harmed by water contamination.

    If you served, lived, or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days during that time period and subsequently developed cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, or had a miscarriage, you may have a claim if the new law passes.

    RPWB attorneys are proud to represent current and former members of our nation’s armed forces, including those harmed by dangerous water contamination at Camp Lejeune. Our law firm, along with our North Carolina-based co-councel at WWPEM Law Firm in Tabor City, N.C.*, are investigating potential cases on behalf of men and women who served, lived, or worked at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, for at least 30 days and subsequently developed cancer or other serious medical issues.

    Water testing at Camp Lejeune in the 1980s revealed the presence of several toxic substances in the water. The main pollutants in Camp Lejeune’s water from 1957 to 1987 were Tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and Trichloroethylene (TCE), but also included Benzene, Trans-1,2-dichlorethylene (DCE) and vinyl chloride.

    These chemicals are not only toxic but also are known to be carcinogenic. Exposure to these substances routinely found in Camp Lejeune’s water supply can cause such cancers as kidney cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia, liver cancer, lung cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, and esophageal cancer.  Exposure can also lead to other diseases and health conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, infertility, miscarriage, renal toxicity, scleroderma, myelodysplastic syndromes and hepatic steatosis.
