Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
We are representing those who served, worked, or resided at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina from 1953 until 1987 who were exposed to contaminated drinking water. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the drinking water at the Camp Lejeune base included Benzene, Tetrachloroethylene (also known as perchloroethylene or PCE), Trichloroethylene (TCE) and Vinyl chloride (VC).
These carcinogenic chemicals may also cause birth defects and other health problems. The types of cancer that have been scientifically linked to the consumption of harmful chemicals contaminating the water at Camp Lejeune include: Leukemia, Bladder cancer, Breast cancer, Esophageal cancer, Kidney cancer, Liver cancer, Lung cancer, Multiple Myeloma, Myelodysplastic Syndrome, and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Other health conditions can result including aplastic anemia (and other myelodysplastic syndromes), neurologic disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, as well as Infertility, Birth Defects or Injuries, Brain Injuries, Cardiac issues, Fatty Liver Disease, Miscarriage, Neurobehavioral Effects, Plastic anemia and other bone marrow conditions, Renal Toxicity, Scleroderma, Hepatic Steatosis, and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Our firm stands ready to assist with securing just compensation for those harmed by the contamination.
