For decades, thousands of service members, their families, and civilian staff members at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejune were poisoned by contaminated drinking water. The contaminants included:
- Trichloroethylene (TCE), which was commonly used as an industrial solvent
- Perchloroethylene, also known as Perc
- Vinyl chloride
The NAACP Office of the General Counsel, working with the law firm DiCello Levitt, plans to file lawsuits on behalf of victims of the Camp Lejeune poisoning. Sign up below if you, or a loved one, may have been impacted.
Anyone who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for 30 days or more between 1953 and 1987 and has been diagnosed with any medical condition related to contamination may be able to recover. This includes those adults and children who have since died. It is imperative that victims act as soon as possible to avoid losing their rights to be compensated for the injuries they suffered.
Fill out the form if you or a loved one have experienced an illness due to the Camp Lejeune poisoning.
