Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Claims
If you or a loved one lived or worked at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune or Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River in North Carolina, you may have been exposed to contaminated water that has caused death, illness, and life-changing health problems.
Our law firm is currently evaluating claims for injuries related to exposure to toxic chemicals through water contamination at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987.
A newly signed PACT Act allows people who were exposed to the toxic chemicals through water contamination while stationed, living or working at Camp Lejeune to file a lawsuit claim. This new bill will allow those exposed to seek compensation after being denied justice for so many years.
The Congressional Budget office has estimated spending $6.1 billion from 2022-2031 to compensate Camp Lejeune victims.

President Biden said during the signing: “Our nation has many obligations but only has one truly sacred obligation… And that’s to prepare and equip those we send into harm’s way and to care for them and their families when they come home.” “ Because veterans are the backbone, the spine of who we are as a country..” “Today we are one step closer to fulfilling that sacred obligation.”
“Less than 1 percent of the population risks everything to defend our nation and our values and everything we hold dear. You know, the 99 percent of us who don’t, we owe them. We owe them big. And that’s what today is all about — it’s paying a debt, in my view.” -President Biden
What was in the drinking water at Camp Lejeune?
Two on-base water wells that were shut down in 1985 had these chemicals:
- Trichloroethylene (TCE)
- Perchloroethylene (PCE)
- Vinyl chloride
- Other compounds
The reality of cases concerning injuries from water consumption at Camp Lejeune is that this is a new area and we are still evaluating the best options to get a recovery for our clients. Most other law firms are not informing their clients that the path to resolution or settlement is not yet clear as the door has only recently been opened to file these types of claims. Our firm may affiliate with other law firms in North Carolina if a lawsuit is necessary to protect our client’s rights. However, the Drummond Law Firm will stay on your case and keep you updated as to the status and will ensure that your rights are protected.
The Drummond Law firm has attorneys licensed in Nevada, Missouri, Virginia and Washington, D.C. While our firm can sign up cases that occurred in other States and countries, if a lawsuit is required in a different State or jurisdiction where we are not licensed, we would affiliate or co-counsel with law firms in those respective jurisdictions.
