Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Claims

Recently, news of a contaminated water supply on a military base made waves in the United States. Between 1953 and 1987, thousands of people living and working at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina, were exposed to toxic chemicals and carcinogens in the water due to leaking underground tanks and waste disposal systems.

This has left former Camp Lejeune residents at high risk of developing several types of cancer including:

  • Bladder cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Liver cancer
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Rectal cancer
  • Brain cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Soft tissue cancer

And other serious health complications such as:

  • Cardiac defects
  • End-stage renal disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Scleroderma
  • Infertility
  • Stillbirth
  • Miscarriage
  • Birth defects
  • Impaired immune system function
  • Neurological issues
  • Skin disorders
  • Liver cirrhosis

The Camp Lejeune Act, a bill signed into law in the summer of 2022, allows those harmed by the Camp Lejeune water contamination to seek reparations directly from the U.S. government.
