Camp Lejeune Survivors – Now is the Time to File Compensation Claims

Default Law Firm Newswire


Denville, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) October 12, 2022 - Military members, spouses, children, and family members: The new law (the PACT bill) allows victims who lived or worked from August 1, 1953, to December 31, 1987, to pursue a lawsuit and recover compensation. The contaminated water wells affected many families, so it is vital to seek help immediately. This option is only available to those exposed to the toxic water for at least thirty days.

The water supply contained toxic chemicals linked to serious health conditions and various forms of cancer. To find out the qualifications to seek compensation, contact the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm as soon as possible. Our firm is ready to answer all questions.

The Marine base had eight water treatment plants providing water to workers and civilians. By 1985, the Marine Corps discovered that two of the eight plants had volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Although the two contaminated plants were shut down, nearly one million military members, staff, their families, and civilian contractors were exposed to VOCs for years.

It was not until years later that the health risks of being exposed to VOC-contaminated water began to manifest. The VOCs in the Camp Lejeune water were benzene, tetrachloroethylene, perchloroethylene (PERC or PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), and vinyl chloride. Multiple medical issues linked to Camp Lejeune contaminated water include:

Birth defects
Bladder cancer
Cardiac defects
Central nervous system disorders
Cirrhosis of the liver
Multiple myeloma
Renal toxicity
Soft tissue cancers
Spina bifida

“If you or someone you know has suffered from one or more of the listed health issues linked to contaminated Camp Lejeune water, contact us - the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm - to discuss your case and fight to protect your legal rights,” indicated Todd J. Leonard, the firm's founder.

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act (PACT) was signed into law on August 10, 2022, and offers access for veterans exposed to toxins and provides access to seek compensation for being harmed due to exposure to toxic water.
