Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawyer

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Attorneys in New York City

PROUDLY REPRESENTING SERVICE MEMBERS, VETERANS & THEIR FAMILIES

Corps Air Station New River in North Carolina began testing positive for certain harmful contaminants. Despite knowledge of this contamination, the majority of the tainted wells were not shut down until 1985. During this time, as many as one million military service members, family members, and civilian staff members may have been exposed to contaminated drinking water.
Entities such as the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry have been examining the effects of Camp Lejeune’s contaminated water since the early 1980s. Reports have found that exposure to the contaminants found in the base’s drinking water has been linked to various illnesses, such as liver cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, adult leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, aplastic anemia, various myelodysplastic syndromes, multiple myeloma, and Parkinson’s disease. If you served or worked at Camp Lejeune and were later diagnosed with an illness or medical condition related to exposure to contaminated drinking water, you may be entitled to veterans’ benefits. You could also have grounds for class action litigation or a personal injury claim. We encourage you to reach out to our firm today to learn more at absolutely no cost.
