Urgent Reminder: Upcoming Deadline for Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Claims is AUGUST 10th, 2024

This week marks four months until the deadline to file ALL Camp Lejeune claims! As the date approaches, individuals affected by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune are urged to submit their claims. This is a critical reminder to all former residents and employees of Camp Lejeune, as well as their families, who may have been exposed to toxic water at the base between the years 1953 and 1987.

Understanding the Issue

For over three decades, the water supply at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina was contaminated with hazardous chemicals at concentrations far exceeding safety standards. These substances included trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), benzene, and other toxic compounds, which are known to cause a variety of health issues, including cancer, birth defects, and other chronic diseases.

Who is Eligible?

Eligibility for filing a claim includes anyone who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between August 1953 and December 1987. This also extends to family members (even those in utero) who were not directly employed by the base, but lived there during the contamination period.

Possible Compensation

Victims of the contamination may be entitled to compensation for health issues linked to the exposure. These health conditions include, but are not limited to, adult leukemia, aplastic anemia, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease, and many more.

How to File a Claim

To file a claim, individuals must submit all required documentation by the August 10th deadline. It is essential to gather all medical records, proof of residence or employment at Camp Lejeune during the specified dates, and any other supporting documents that establish the impact of the contamination on your health.

Why Act Now?

The health effects caused by the toxic water at Camp Lejeune have been devastating for many, and the compensation process is time sensitive. Delaying the submission of a claim will result in the loss of your right to compensation.
