Atlanta Camp Lejeune Victims
Between 1953 and 1987, service members and their families stationed at Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base in North Carolina were exposed to water contaminated with dangerously high, toxic levels of trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCE), and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). There is some evidence to support that the government was aware – or should have been aware – of the heavily contaminated water supply, yet nothing was done, and many lives were put at dangerous risk. The 2022 Camp Lejeune Justice Act allows people exposed to this contaminated water for at least 30 days to sue and recover possible damages due to harm related to the exposure.
