Person reading Since 1953, over one million Marines, civilian contractors, and their loved ones who were living or working at MCAS New River and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune were recklessly exposed to water contaminated with dangerous chemicals. Altogether, around 70 hazardous substances were found in base water storage tanks, including perchloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), hazardous degreasers, benzene, vinyl chloride, and dry-cleaning solvents. Unfortunately, there is a close relationship between the pollutants found in Camp Lejeune’s water and the occurrence of several chronic diseases. Some of the toxins discovered are known for causing cardiac defects, breast cancer, esophageal cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Parkinson’s disease, infertility, birth defects, and multiple myeloma.

What Is the Camp Lejeune Justice Act?

The White House In January, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 was introduced in the House of Representatives and recently passed by the Senate by a vote of 84 to 14. It is part of a larger bill called Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act which is aimed at addressing the problems impacting our veterans who were subjected to hazardous substances while serving in the military. Thousands of toxic exposure lawsuits were previously dismissed thanks to a North Carolina law preventing claims. However, the United States government has finally acknowledged a relationship between toxic drinking water and numerous chronic illnesses plaguing Marines who were stationed at Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River between 1953 and 1987. Consequently, military families and civilians who were previously denied justice will finally get their day in court.

As soon as President Joe Biden signs the Camp Lejeune Justice Act into law, the bill will establish a 2-year period for victims to commence legal action. This timeframe is crucial because it removes legal technicalities that previously barred victims from receiving damages despite having both a record of toxic exposure and related medical diagnoses. Based on our years of litigation, the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s leading lawyers expect that thousands of Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuits will be filed. Even if you are uncertain about your claim, we urge you to contact the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.
