About The Camp Lejeune Justice Act
This bill allows certain affected individuals or their family members to sue and recover damages for harm from exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987. This action is available only to those who were exposed to contaminated water for at least 30 days.
In the early 1980s, the US government discovered dangerous contaminants in the groundwater at Camp Lejeune. Testing found that drinking water sources at Camp Lejeune were contaminated with high levels of benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene, or perchloroethylene (PCE), and vinyl chloride (VC), all of which are known to be cancer-causing in humans.
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act does not entitle everyone who served or worked at Camp Lejeune to automatic compensation. This legislation covers those who have not already been compensated, and they must prove their cases to receive any compensation. The Act requires that the injured person, or the representative of a deceased injured person, file a claim for damages with the appropriate federal agency.
