Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is a United States military training facility in North Carolina. It is now known that between the years of 1957 and 1987, drinking water in certain parts of Camp Lejeune was contaminated with high levels of certain volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Unfortunately, many who were stationed at, resided at, or worked at Camp Lejeune during these years drank this water, bathed in it, or were otherwise exposed to it. They may have developed serious medical conditions as a result.
Thanks to the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, they now have a means of seeking financial compensation for their losses. If you believe you’re eligible for compensation, review your case with a Camp Lejeune claims attorney at the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg. Your odds of securing the compensation you may deserve will typically be greater if you have legal representation.
Under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022, someone may be able to pursue compensation for losses associated with medical conditions they developed as a result of exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune if they worked or lived at Camp Lejeune or were otherwise exposed to the site’s toxic water for at least 30 days between 1953 and 1987. Those who were exposed to the contaminated water in utero may also seek compensation.
It’s wise to enlist the help of a Camp Lejeune claims law firm when taking legal action. To demonstrate that you’re eligible to receive compensation, you must not only prove that you lived or worked at Camp Lejeune during the relevant time period—you must also show that you were harmed as a result of a medical condition linked to the base toxins in the water.
Gathering the evidence necessary to prove you deserve compensation isn’t a task you need to handle on your own. A Camp Lejeune claims attorney can investigate your case and gather the necessary evidence on your behalf.

This isn’t necessarily an exhaustive list. If you believe you developed a medical condition as a result of exposure to toxic water at Camp Lejeune, review your case with an attorney. A Camp Lejeune claims lawyer can determine if you have grounds to seek compensation.
