North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune has served as a training ground for the United States Marine Corps since its establishment in 1941. However, recent environmental studies have confirmed that Camp Lejeune was contaminated by a number of toxic substances for over three decades, between 1953 and 1987.

According to reports, the water supply at Camp Lejeune was contaminated with a combination of four core chemicals: Benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCE), and vinyl chloride (VC), as well as up to 70 secondary chemicals. As a result of this contamination, individuals were unknowingly exposed to over 280 times the recommended safety limit.

If you or a loved one were stationed in or around Camp Lejeune and have experienced medical issues you believe are related to toxic exposure, you may be entitled to compensation.
