Seeking Justice For Victims Of Water Contamination At Camp Lejeune

Camp Lejeune is a Marine Corps base in North Carolina. It recently came to light that chemical contamination in the water from the 1950s through the late ’80s has led to significant and often fatal health issues for those exposed to the water during that time.

Veterans and civilians harmed by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune now have a limited window of time to seek justice and compensation through the court system. These cases can be challenging, particularly considering you are going up against the vast power of the government. At The Waffenschmidt Law Firm, LLC, we can fight that battle for you.

The Serious Health Effects Of Camp Lejeune Contaminated Water

For decades, Camp Lejeune’s water supply was contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including known and suspected carcinogens. The chemical contamination stemmed from multiple sources.

Those exposed to the water for at least 30 days are at higher risk of developing serious health conditions such as:

  • Liver cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Leukemia
  • Kidney disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Infertility
  • Birth defects
  • Miscarriage

These conditions may not develop until years or even decades after the exposure.
