For years, the residents of Camp Lejeune drank, cooked with, and bathed in water that was contaminated with a host of dangerous chemicals. The water used by residents and families living on the base was contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which have been linked to a number of serious health conditions.
The sources of the contamination are varied, but one the most likely culprit is a dry cleaning facility that operated on the base for many years. Since the facility closed, the levels of VOCs in drinking water have decreased dramatically. However, the damage has already been done, and the residents of Camp Lejeune are now facing a range of health problems.See If You Qualify
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act is a new law that is seeking to receive senate approval.
If passed, the law would allow individuals who were exposed, active duty military service members to toxic water at the base between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987 to file a claim in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina and recover damages for any harm they suffered as a result of the exposure. The new law would override current North Carolina state law that bars actions such as these.
The bill would also allow anyone who worked at or lived on the base during that time period to file a claim, regardless of whether they have been diagnosed with any specific illness or disease. This is a significant step forward for those affected by the toxic water at Camp Lejeune, and it will provide much-needed compensation for those who have been suffering for years without any recourse.See If You Qualify
