The Cochran Firm is currently evaluating claims for injuries to veterans, family members, and others who were stationed or worked at the Marine Corps Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 caused by dangerous chemicals in the drinking water. Reports indicate that exposure to toxic chemicals through water contamination at Camp Lejeune has led to cancer and other severe illnesses.

If you or a loved one were stationed, lived, or worked at Marine Corp Camp Lejeune and have been diagnosed with cancer or another severe illness, contact The Cochran Firm today to see if you are eligible for money damages.

Toxic Water At Camp Lejeune

From 1953 – 1987, military personnel and their families that were stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina were exposed to contaminated water. Camp Lejeune’s tap water and bath water were contaminated with toxins up to 3400 times above recommended safety standards.

In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report detailing the long-term effects of those exposed to Camp Lejeune’s water. They found that consumers have a 10 percent increased risk of dying from cancer compared to those stationed at Camp Pendleton. In addition, those at Camp Lejeune had a 35 percent higher risk of kidney cancer and a 42 percent higher risk of liver cancer. They also had a 47 percent higher risk of Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a 68 percent higher risk of multiple myeloma, and double the risk of ALS.

Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022

Congress has finally created a way for victims to maintain a federal cause of action against the United States government. To be successful, one must follow the strict procedures laid out in H.R. 3967 § 706.

  • This bill allows certain individuals to sue and recover damages for harm from exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987.
  • This action is available only to individuals who were exposed to contaminated water for at least 30 days.
  • The bill prohibits the U.S. government from asserting specified immunity from litigation in response to such a lawsuit.
  • The bill also prohibits an individual who brings such an action from bringing a separate tort action against the United States based on the same harm.

The attorneys of The Cochran Firm know how to navigate this process and can help you.
