For decades victims of life-threatening complications have struggled to gain compensation for the loss of loved ones or severe medical problems due to this exposure.
However, the federal government recently passed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which paves the way for victims and loved ones of those who died from exposure to seek compensation.
The legislation means, in essence, that the government is now assuming liability for this horrible problem.
Camp Lejeune was opened in 1942 in Jacksonville, N.C. and, with its West Coast counterpart in San Diego, provided training for the country’s elitist fighting force.
As thousands of Marines passed through the base through WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and more recent military conflicts it was discovered that water systems at the base were contaminated.
Among the diseases attributed to exposure to these toxic chemicals are:
- Bladder cancer
- Breast cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Lung cancer
- Liver cancer
- Tongue cancer
- Tonsil cancer
- Renal toxicity
- Parkinson’s disease
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Female infertility
Marines and their families are not the only ones at risk from the poisoned water. Over the decades thousands of others, such as civilian workers, contractors and nearby residents also have been exposed.
Legal experts say that anyone who was exposed and has suffered medical problems attributable to poisoned water should protect their legal rights to compensation by seeking free legal advice about their options to seek compensation.
