Nebraska Camp Lejeune Contamination Attorneys

A New Law Protecting Veterans and Their Families

On August 8, 2022 the Promises to Address Comprehensive Toxins (PACT) Act expanded Veteran’s Administration healthcare to millions of American service members who are suffering from respiratory illnesses which may have been caused by exposure to toxic burn pits while serving overseas.

Many Americans don’t realize that the PACT Act also contains provisions that allow service members and civilians who were harmed by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina to seek compensation for their injuries.

If you or a loved one was harmed or killed as a result of exposure to toxic chemicals at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987, you’ll want to file an administrative claim right away. That’s the first step in receiving compensation for your medical costs and other expenses caused by the government’s inexcusable lack of oversight.

Contaminated Water Linked to Severe Health Issues

Research conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and others confirms that people who lived and worked at Camp Lejeune are significantly more likely to suffer from cancer and other dangerous diseases. And mothers who drank the water gave birth to babies with much higher incidents of birth defects, including spina bifida, hematopoietic cancers, and neural tube defects.

Service members, spouses, family members, and civilians who lived or worked at the base can now file claims to recover damages for harm caused by exposure to toxic chemicals. More than 70 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) have been discovered in the groundwater, including benzene from fuel tanks and hazardous chemicals used in dry cleaning.

Diseases and adverse health reactions associated with the contaminants found at Camp Lejeune include:

  • ALS
  • Aplastic anemia
  • Myelodysplastic syndromes
  • Renal toxicity
  • Leukemia
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Miscarriages
  • Birth defects

Compensation Is Available

Anyone who spent time at the Camp Lejeune military base between 1953 and 1987 and used the water for drinking, bathing, cooking, or cleaning could have been exposed to serious health risks. Victims and their survivors may be eligible for the following types of compensation:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income
  • Assisted living care
  • Emotional damages
  • Wrongful death
