In June 2022, U.S. government passed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022, which was part of the PACT (Honoring our Promises to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act) Act. President Joe Biden signed into law the PACT Act on August 10, 2022. This act focuses on addressing health issues that affect military veterans, civilians and their families from toxic water exposure on base.

I further understand and agree to the Privacy Policy & Terms of Use

    From 1953 to 1987, the two water supply systems at the United States Marine Corps base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina were believed to be contaminated with unacceptable levels of toxic substances such as Benzene, Tetrachloroethylene (PCE), Trichloroethylene (TCE), Trans-1,2-dichlorethylene (DCE), and vinyl chloride. These toxins have been linked to cancer and many other conditions.

    Because of the new law, current and former service members, their spouses and children, other civilians who were exposed can now seek financial compensation by filing a Camp Lejeune lawsuit.
