What To Know About The Contamination
Thousands of people, including service members, staff members and military families, have spent significant time at Camp Lejeune. In 1982, testers discovered carcinogenic contaminants in the camp’s water sources, including drinking and bathing water. Anyone exposed might have an increased risk of developing certain cancers and other conditions including:
- Bladder cander
- Breast cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Liver cancer
- Lung cancer
- Female infertility
- Multiple mylemona
- Neurological damage
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Parkinson’s disease
Over the past several decades, numerous victims of contamination have filed claims related to water-related illness, only to have the Veterans Administration reject them.
What To Know About The Camp Lejeune Justice Act
To better serve victims, Congressional representatives have developed a bipartisan bill known as the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022. If passed, the act would allow anyone who suffered exposure to the toxic water between 1953 and 1987 to file a claim for fair compensation for their injuries.
