Camp Lejeune Personal Injury Attorney

Pursuing Justice Against Governmental Negligence

For decades, the administrators at North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune swept their deceptive practices under the rug. The Marine base consistently exposed its workers and surrounding residents to harmful, toxic water. People used this poison for drinking water, bathing, and cooking. All the while, the camp was aware of its actions and did little to fix the problem.

If you or a loved one has been harmed by Camp Lejeune’s willful negligence, our firm is here to help. We have “the might for the fight,” and we are ready to take on any harmful government entity. Our team has decades of legal experience, and we keep our clients first in everything we do.

For representation against Camp Lejeune and its malfeasance, call us today at (888) 867-5191.

Decades of Unlawful Behavior

Camp Lejeune’s disreputable history stretches back to the 1950s. During the Second World War, the camp started dumping its toxic waste into its own water supply. This concoction included chemicals like degreasers. Testing showed that the water exceeded the allowable amount of toxins between 240 and 3,400 times.

For decades, the camp refused to correct the problem and even found ways to make it worse. The camp was ordered to stop contaminating its water, but in 1974, it was found guilty of dumping solvents into the supply. Later, in the ‘80s, another order came down. The camp was told to shut off the wells containing toxic water. It did, but then it turned them back on later.

This behavior is unacceptable on two levels. First, the camp directly, openly violated the law. Second, and most importantly, it caused harm to the people living on and around the base.

Compensation for Your Injuries

For 20 years, the public was unaware of Camp Lejeune’s actions. The federal government has since tried several times to allow people to seek damages. All of these attempts were thwarted. Finally, the Honoring Our Pact Act of 2022 has opened a path for victims to pursue justice and file lawsuits.

If you’ve been harmed by Camp Lejeune, you could receive money for your medical treatment. You could recoup any money you’ve already spent, and your future treatments could be covered as well.

If you suffer from any of the above illnesses, working has undoubtedly been a problem. In a personal injury case, you could recover your lost income. This includes both the money you directly missed and the loss of potential career advancement.

A lawsuit can also compensate you for your pain and suffering. No amount of money can soothe your wounds, but these extra damages can help make life more comfortable. Very likely, your lifestyle has been built around your injuries. This could include changes to your home, car, and more. Pain and suffering damages can help ease the financial burden of your injuries, making you more comfortable tomorrow.

Our firm is accepting clients who lived near or on the Camp Lejeune marine base.
