The Camp Lejeune Justice Act is long overdue. Once passed by Congress and signed by President Biden, the Justice Act will provide a path of much-needed relief for many.
If you lived at or near Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina or worked there as a civilian in any capacity between the 1950s and the 1980s, you or your family may have suffered harm through the long-running water contamination at that military facility.
What Went Wrong At Camp Lejeune?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identified Camp Lejeune as a major polluter of water wells as early as 1980. Investigations beginning in the early ‘80s uncovered the truth: Oil, industrial waste and other toxic substances were being routinely dumped into the water supply that many base residents and personnel drank and bathed with, fully trusting in its safety. The legal case has been unfolding since then and the new Justice Act finally offers hope to many families.
As devoted servants of your country, you had every right to expect reasonable, vigilant protection of your health and well-being while on that Marine Corps base. If you are or have been ill, were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987, and even suspect that you may qualify for compensation, please take advantage of our offer of a free initial consultation.

The PACT Act And The Justice Act For Camp Lejeune Personnel And Families Suffering From Painful Medical Conditions
For decades, veterans, their family members and civilian personnel who had spent time at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina have been reporting devastating illnesses. Many have been forced to rely on disability benefits to survive.
The Justice Act is part of a larger piece of legislation called the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act. After all these years, those who developed cancers, experienced ill effects or experienced early deaths of loved ones traceable to contaminated water wells on the base will finally have a legal remedy.
Because of the slow-growing nature of cancers, some affected Marines, military family members and civilian personnel have just recently been diagnosed, while others have suffered for some time. Some military families have already lost family members with a history at Camp Lejeune to conditions and diseases including the following:
- Esophageal, bladder, kidney and liver cancer: Some sufferers have been gravely debilitated as a result.
- Breast, lung and other cancers: Many sufferers had never smoked and had no other risk factors.
- Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, adult leukemia and other systemic diseases: People with these and similar maladies often struggle for years to get a correct diagnosis.
- Birth defects, Parkinson’s disease and other life-altering disorders: Water contamination at Camp Lejeune has left much suffering in its wake.
