A recent federal law provides compensation for injuries caused by contaminants in the drinking water at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
Individuals who may seek compensation include those who resided, worked, or were otherwise exposed (including in utero exposure) to contaminated water supplied by the United States at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina for not less than 30 days during the period beginning on August 1, 1953, and ending on December 31, 1987. Legal representatives of those individuals who have died or who are not competent may also seek compensation.
The toxic contaminants in that water may have caused conditions which include adult leukemia, aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease, esophageal cancer, breast cancer, renal toxicity, scleroderma (systemic sclerosis), lung cancer, hepatic steatosis (fatty liver disease), miscarriage, cardiac (heart related) birth defect (in utero only), birth defect/birth injury (in utero only), female infertility, childhood leukemia, childhood non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or neurobehavioral effects. This list will change as scientific studies progress.
Individuals and representatives must make claims for compensation to the federal government and file lawsuits in federal court in North Carolina.
