Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Exposure
Representing Service Members, Marine Dependents, and Civilian Employees
On August 10, 2022, President Biden signed the Honoring Our PACT Act of 2022, which included the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act extends to military members, their families, and civilian employees who lived or served at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune the right to seek compensation for harm they suffered because of exposure to toxic water at the base. The contaminated water has been associated with various health conditions. Before the Act was passed, those affected were barred from bringing claims against the federal government and pursuing damages. But now, they can seek justice.
At Boesen Law, we are here to help military members, civil servants, and family members recover damages for harm sustained because of toxic water exposure at Camp Lejeune. These brave men and women sacrificed everything or supported those who stood up to protect our freedoms, and we must stand up for them now. Our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience taking action against persons or entities that have caused others harm because of negligence or recklessness. We know what it takes to build an effective legal strategy and are ready to put our skills to work for our military members.
If you or a loved one was injured due to contaminated water exposure at Camp Lejeune, please call our Denver team at (303) 327-9988 or contact us onlinetoday.
Who Can File a Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit?
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act allows eligible individuals to pursue litigation against the federal government. Eligible individuals include those who lived, worked, or were stationed at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, or otherwise exposed to the toxic water at the base for at least 30 days.
To seek relief for injuries from contaminated water exposure, the individual must provide evidence demonstrating a causal link between the harm sustained and the toxic water. This burden requires digging through medical records, collecting relevant reports and studies, and other tasks.
At Boesen Law, we believe that military members, dependents, and civil servants should not have to shoulder this burden alone. That is why we are ready to provide the competent and skilled legal representation needed to build a case. Our team is detail-oriented and prepared to put in the time and effort to show that toxic water exposure was associated with an injury or death.
Health Conditions Arising from Contaminated Water Exposure
The water supply at Camp Lejeune contained hazardous chemicals that endangered the lives of those working and stationed there. These chemicals have been linked to serious diseases.
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, health conditions associated with toxic water exposure include:
- Adult leukemia
- Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes
- Bladder cancer
- Liver cancer
- Multiple myeloma
- Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
- Parkinson's disease
Camp Lejeune water contamination victims can seek damages for past and future medical costs, pain and suffering, and lost quality of life, among other expenses and losses. Our firm delivers skilled counsel and zealous advocacy to seek just compensation for our clients.
