Victims of Camp Lejeune Water Contamination & Toxic Exposure

Our water contamination and toxic exposure lawyers fight for you

If you were stationed at North Carolina’s Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune or MCAS New River between 1953 and 1987, you may have been exposed to contaminated drinking water. For four decades, two of the eight wells supplying water to Camp Lejeune Marines—as well as their families, civilian workers, and patients in the hospital—were contaminated with harmful chemicals known to cause cancer and severe illness. A new bipartisan bill provides long-overdue justice to veterans and their families who were affected. If you think you could be among them, we can help.
