Camp Lejeune Lawsuits

We are working with co-counsel, environmental law firm Weitz and Luxenberg, to investigate potential lawsuits related to the Camp Justice Act. We have successfully worked with Weitz and Luxenberg in the past on environmental lawsuits. Specifically, we are investigating claims on behalf of individuals who either worked, lived, or served in the military at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987.   You must have been exposed to contaminated water at the Marine Base for at least 30 days. Some of the illnesses that are being investigated may be linked to contaminated water exposure, including include certain cancers and other serious health conditions.

Often, the federal government can claim immunity from a lawsuit in certain situations. Also, in certain states, like North Carolina there can be something called a Statute of Repose, which time-bars certain lawsuits. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act addresses both of these concerns and allows affected individuals to legally bring claims under certain conditions for compensation.

According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, “there was undoubtedly a hazard associated with drinking the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.”

It is important to know that there are time limits for filing a lawsuit under the Act so please reach out right away for a free and confidential consultation. You could also submit our online form.

We recommend that individuals impacted by the water contamination at Camp Lejeune should act on this as soon as possible.
