In 1982, the U.S. Marine Corps discovered dangerous chemicals known as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in the drinking water at Camp Lejeune. However, the contamination began in 1953 and continued to expose service members, base workers, and their families until 1987 (according to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry), though the most contaminated wells were removed from service in February 1985.

Anyone who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987 may be able to file a Camp Lejeune lawsuit to pursue compensation for their injuries. If you or a loved one believes you may have been affected by water contamination during this time please contact us as soon as possible. Even if your loved one passed away many years ago, you may still be eligible to file a Camp Lejeune lawsuit on their behalf.
