Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022
In 2014, people seeking compensation after toxic exposure at Camp Lejeune were originally shut down by the Supreme Court. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 is seeking to correct this situation. It looks like this new act is set to pass, which will open the doors for people to seek legal compensation after being exposed to toxic water at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987. The lawsuits will most likely need to be filed in the U.S. District Court in Eastern North Carolina within two years of the act’s enactment.
People who lived, served, or worked at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 and were later diagnosed with cancer or another severe chronic illness like Parkinson’s disease should consider starting a case now with CR Legal Team. We can help build your case early in anticipation of the act passing.
Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
Camp Lejeune has multiple water treatment plants to provide drinking water across its approximate 250 square miles of land. With the assistance of outside experts, the USMC determined in the ‘80s that the drinking water at Camp Lejeune was contaminated by volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It appears that the contamination originated from a nearby industrial dry-cleaning site that had poisoned the water wells even before the base was ever opened in the ‘40s. The toxic exposure was likely worsened by the heavy chemical substance use on Camp Lejeune, too.
Cancer Caused by Camp Lejeune Drinking Water
Exposure to VOCs is known to cause various cancers and chronic health conditions. The longer exposure persists, the more likely severe illnesses become.
Cancers that have been linked to water contamination at Camp Lejeune include:
- Bladder cancer
- Breast cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Liver Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Multiple myeloma
- Myelodysplastic syndrome
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
VOC exposure can also cause neurological damage. Parkinson’s disease is caused by neuron degradation, and so, it could be caused directly by drinking the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Other severe side effects could include birth defects and injuries, a higher risk of miscarriages, and various brain injuries.
