Our lawyers and handling Camp Lejeune wrongful death lawsuits in all 50 states. We are representing victims who have lost a loved one as a result of the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. The page is about the claims survivors can bring the potential settlement amount surviving family members may receive.
From 1953 to the late 1980s, the water supply at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps in North Carolina was dangerously contaminated with deadly chemicals. A stunning one million people were exposed to these chemicals and studies have shown that they caused many residents to develop cancer and die prematurely.
Many of the victims of the Camp Lejeune water contamination died years ago and their families were never able to legal compensation for their deaths because they were legally barred from bringing civil lawsuits. Now, however, a new federal law called the PACT Act is about to give the surviving family members of Lejeune victims the right to bring wrongful death lawsuits against the federal government. This law will allow surviving family members to sue the government even if the victim of the Camp Lejeune water died decades ago.
