Camp Lejeune Injury
Table of Contents
The water at Camp Lejeune, a Marine Corps base in Jacksonville, North Carolina, was contaminated with carcinogens known as VOCs (volatile organic compounds) from 1953 to 1987. These toxic chemicals primarily included benzene, vinyl chloride (VC), trichloroethylene (TCE), and tetrachloroethylene (PCE).
Do you have any of the following symptoms?
These and over 70 other secondary chemicals were present at levels nearly 280 times what is considered safe for human consumption. The aftermath of exposure has in many cases led to cancer and many other serious health issues including:
- Aplastic anemia
- Birth complications
- Bladder cancer
- Breast cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Female infertility
- Hepatic steatosis
- Kidney cancer
- Liver cancer
- Lung cancer
- Multiple myeloma
- Myelodysplastic syndromes
- Neurobehavioral effects
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Parkinson’s disease
- Renal toxicity
Military personnel, facility staff, and their families could have been exposed to these toxic chemicals through drinking, bathing, cleaning, cooking, and more.
Camp Lejeune Toxic Chemical Lawsuits
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act, bill number H.R. 2192, has now been passed by congress and signed into law. It allows victims of the toxic chemicals in the water at Camp Lejeune to pursue compensation from the U.S. government through the U.S. Treasury Judgment Fund.
