Camp Lejeune Victims in Conyers, GA
Two water sources supplying the military base at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina were contaminated with harmful chemicals, including benzene and industrial solvents, between 1953 and 1987. This led to Marines and civil contractors, as well as their families, being exposed to contaminated water. Some of those affected went on to develop serious health conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, kidney disease, and cancer.
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act, signed into law by President Biden on August 10, 2022, allows those who were exposed to the contaminated water to sue and recover damages for any harm suffered as a result of this. To be eligible to claim, the person must have been exposed to the contaminated water for a period of 30 days or more. It should also be noted that those who wish to make a claim only have until August 10, 2024, to do so.
