Over the course of three and a half decades, large portions of the water supply at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River in North Carolina were contaminated by harmful and toxic chemicals, including high levels of known carcinogens like Benzene. The contaminated wells serviced Veterans and their families, at home and at work, as well as civilian personnel between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987. Hundreds of thousands of people were unknowingly exposed to cancer-causing chemicals known to cause cancers of the esophagus, lungs, breasts, bladder, kidneys and bones (leukemia), as well as non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and a host of other illnesses, notably Parkinson’s disease and ALS (see list above).
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act enables veterans and their family members harmed by Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River water contamination to seek damages by filing a claim against the federal government.

WHAT WILL WE ULTIMATELY ASK OF YOU?
Each case is quite different and individually handled. Any lawyer that says otherwise is treating you like a number. But typically you will be required to sign a contingency fee contract, a background document with basic identifying information and medical info, a request for Form DD214, a few medical authorizations to allow release of medical records and opinions, a list of death beneficiaries (in wrongful death claim) and very few other claims. We have staff to assist with all of it.
This is a serious claim, but we will help you with a smile on our face and a kind voice. If you doubt this, just look at my website at www.stevenslawgrouppllc.com
