Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit
At this time just about everyone has heard about the mass tort water contamination lawsuit resulting from contaminated water at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website:
If you served at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune or Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River in North Carolina, you may have had contact with contaminants in the drinking water there. Scientific and medical evidence has shown an association between exposure to these contaminants during military service and development of certain diseases later on. If you have qualifying service at Camp Lejeune and a current diagnosis of one of the conditions listed below, you may be able to get disability benefits.
Does it affect you? August 1953 – December 1987
