Your LOCAL Camp LeJeune Water Contamination Lawyers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey
Contaminated drinking water at North Carolina’s U.S. Marine Corp Base Camp Lejeune put hundreds of thousands of people at risk for cancer and other serious illnesses. Between 1953 and 1987, two of the eight wells at Camp Lejeune were contaminated with harmful chemicals known to cause cancer and other severe illnesses. These wells supplied contaminated drinking water to children at daycare or school, to military families for drinking and bathing, to patients in the hospital, and to servicemembers and civilian workers in their place of employment. Fifteen different illnesses and medical conditions including several types of cancer, reproductive problems, birth defects, and Parkinson’s disease have been linked to Camp Lejeune water contamination.
On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, the US Senate officially passed the Camp LeJeune Justice Act and it was signed into law by President Biden on August 10, 2022.
The Act is historical in many ways including removing traditional US Government immunity defenses and setting forth a Statute of Limitations that is two (2) years from the date the Act is signed into law.
The Act will allow individuals including US Marines and their families who were affected by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune to bring claims and recover damages. There are a large number of cancers and diseases that are potentially linked to the carcinogens found in the water.
