Camp Lejeune Victims in Jonesboro, GA
Camp Lejeune is a U.S. Marine training camp in the city of Jacksonville, NC in Onslow County. Countless families in the area were exposed to dangerous chemicals in the water supply spanning the dates of August 1st, 1953, and December 31st, 1987. Service members, civilians, and their families were unknowingly subjected to these harmful chemicals for decades. The water at Camp Lejeune was found to contain dangerous levels of benzene, industrial mixtures, and other dangerous chemicals known to cause health risks. These individuals have been subjected to various diseases and cancers because of exposure to these chemicals. Finally, the “Camp Lejeune Justice Act” was passed by the U.S. Government in August of 2022, allowing victims to file a claim to recover damages suffered. Anyone exposed to these dangerous chemicals for more than 30 days between August 1st, 1953, and December 31st, 1987 can file a legal claim immediately.
