We are ready to fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.
Camp Lejeune Lawsuit Attorney | On Your Side
The thought of our nation’s best and bravest being harmed on our own soil is deeply saddening, but the reality is that three chemicals found in the drinking water at Camp Lejeune between 1953-1987 (trichloroethylene, vinyl chloride, and benzene) are considered carcinogenic, and tetrachloroethylene, also found in the drinking water, is deemed “likely carcinogenic.” If you’ve developed cancer or experienced birth defects since your time at Camp Lejeune, among other illnesses, there’s a strong chance you have a valid claim. Our firm is here to help you pursue the justice you deserve.
Who Qualifies for a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?
As of August 2022, the Camp Lejune Justice Act made it possible for veterans, their families, and other civilians on site who’ve been harmed by the unsafe drinking water present at Camp Lejune to recover compensation for their damages. However, to be eligible, you must prove that you were stationed in Camp Lejune for at least 30 days between the years 1953 and 1987, and that the condition you’ve developed is a known effect caused by exposure to those chemicals.

Our firm is well-equipped to guide you through the process and fight for the compensation you deserve. When we take your case, we will do the following:
- Assess the duration for which you were stationed at Camp Lejeune and the extent to which you may have been exposed to the dangerous drinking water.
