Camp Lejeune Mass Tort Litigation

Background

Camp Lejeune is a U.S. Marine Corps base located in North Carolina. For several decades, from the 1950s through the 1980s, individuals stationed at Camp Lejeune were exposed to contaminated drinking water. The water sources were tainted with harmful chemicals, including volatile organic compounds, such as trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), benzene, and other contaminants.

Harmful Effects

Exposure to these contaminants has been linked to a range of serious health conditions, including certain types of cancers, neurological disorders, and birth defects. Many veterans and their families who lived at Camp Lejeune during this period have faced significant health challenges as a result. The PACT ACT (Providing Accountability Through Transparency Act) and subsequent wrongful death claims have been mechanisms through which affected individuals and families have sought justice and compensation for the harm they’ve endured.
