As a result, they might have developed a range of health conditions.

Did you work or live at Camp Lejeune at some point between August 1953 and December 1987? Did your time at Camp Lejeune add up to at least 30 cumulative days? Do you have reason to believe your health or the health of your child has been harmed due to consumption of and/or exposure to contaminated water?

If so, you may be eligible to recover financial compensation. Discuss your case with a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit attorney at Russell & Hill, PLLC to learn more about your potential legal options.

Essential Information About Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune

Analysis of the water supply at Camp Lejeune in the 1980s revealed the presence of high levels of certain volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

  • Trichloroethylene (TCE)

  • Perchloroethylene (PCE)

  • Benzene

  • Vinyl chloride

It appears these VOCs mixed with the groundwater due to improper disposal practices. Sadly, it wasn’t until 1999 that individuals and families potentially affected by exposure to Camp Lejeune’s harmful water were informed that their health conditions may have been caused by the contaminated water.

Now, thanks to the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, victims and their loved ones can seek compensation for losses they may have incurred due to consuming or otherwise being exposed to harmful water at the site. To learn if you’re eligible for compensation, meet with a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit attorney.

This may not be an exhaustive list. It is also possible that children may have been affected by the contaminated water while in utero if their mothers lived or worked at Camp Lejeune.
