If you or someone you love lived or worked near the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 and suffered serious health problems, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
Service members, their families, and civilian employees living at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina from 1953 to 1987 were drinking and bathing in water with toxic concentrations of chemicals between 240 and 3,400 times higher than safety standards.
Some estimates suggest one million Marines, their families, and civilian workers were exposed to trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), benzene, and vinyl chloride. All are known carcinogens (cancer-causing chemicals) and are extremely dangerous to human health, including unborn children.
Exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune for as little as 30 days has produced devastating side effects in generations of people in the area. Side effects include multiple cancers, infertility, miscarriage, infant death, and serious birth defects.
Please contact us immediately if you believe you were affected by the tragic mistakes that led to you or someone you care about suffering after living in the Camp Lejeune area.
Injuries and conditions include:

Now our team is here to stand against the disastrous handling of dangerous chemicals that led to the suffering of generations of Marines, their families, and the entire support staff around Camp Lejeune. This health crisis is heartbreaking, and we want to help you get the compensation you deserve.
