Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

If you or a loved one served in Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in New River North Carolina, then you may be entitled to compensation. On June 16, 2022, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act was passed by the Senate as part of the bill “Honoring our PACT Act of 2022.” 

The Camp Lejeune act establishes the right of individuals exposed to contaminated drinking water to bring legal action. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry found that the drinking water was contaminated with volatile organic compounds including benzene, vinyl chloride, Tetrachloroethylene (PCE), and Trichloroethylene (TCE). 

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs has identified fifteen conditions linked to the water contamination at Camp Lejeune including: 

Bladder cancer

Breast cancer

Esophageal cancer

Female infertility

Hepatic steatosis

Kidney cancer


Lung cancer


Multiple myeloma

Myelodysplastic syndromes

Neurobehavioral effects

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

Renal toxicity


Parkinson’s Disease

Pancreatic Cancer

Other cancers

Other health issues claimed to be related to exposure.

TonaLaw is here to help veterans, workers, and their families who have been waiting for justice. To determine if you are eligible to pursue a claim, complete the form on this page. You can also text us at 1 (631) 780-5355 or call us toll-free at 1 (833) TONALAW.

To file a successful claim, the individual seeking compensation must have been exposed to water from contaminated systems at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between the dates of August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987. 

The individual must also establish that they have been diagnosed with a qualifying disability and provide medical evidence showing a nexus or link between the current disability and the exposure to contaminated water. Medical evidence can include documentation of hospital care or medical services for qualifying illnesses or conditions with a confirmed diagnosis.

Individuals exposed to the contaminated water may include members of the service, civilian workers, and their families, including unborn children, living or working at Camp Lejeune. However, claims based on time spent at Camp Lejeune involve potentially complex issues of exposure and causation. Thus, individuals seeking compensation should consult with an experienced attorney immediately.
