Camp Lejeune and the Surrounding Area

In 1982, testing revealed that three separate water distribution systems that supplied water to Camp Lejeune were highly contaminated with toxic chemicals.

These include: Hadnot Point, Tarawa Terrace, and Holcomb Boulevard.

Between August 1953 and December 1987, as many as one million service members, civilians, and their families who lived and worked at Camp Lejeune and the surrounding area were exposed to toxic chemicals in polluted drinking water.

Marines, civilian employees, and their families have developed cancers and other serious illnesses from exposure to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Some of the illnesses include:

Until now, it has been difficult to seek compensation for toxic water injuries. North Carolina has a strict law that prevents those harmed by exposure to the toxic water at Camp Lejeune from taking legal action.

That law, a statute of repose, essentially prevents a victim from seeking compensation if more than ten years have passed since the exposure.  However, a new federal bill – the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 – rectifies this injustice.

As a result of the bill, those harmed by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune will be able to bring claims for personal injury and wrongful death in U.S. federal court to recover compensatory damages.

The bill also permits the representation of a person who was exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune to bring a claim on behalf of their loved one.  This is particularly relevant for those who have family members that have become ill or passed away due to illnesses caused by exposure to contaminated water.
