Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Attorneys

We’ll fight for justice and the compensation you deserve!

Compensation for Victims of Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune

In June 2022, the United States Congress passed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act into law as part of the larger Honor Our Pact Act. The bill allows individuals to sue and recover financial compensation in the form of damages for harm that resulted from exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. This includes military service members, their families, and others who may have developed cancer, suffered birth defects, and many other illnesses and disorders.

If you or a loved one were diagnosed with a severe illness, such as cancer, and lived at or were stationed at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps base between August 1st, 1953, and December 31, 1987, you now have an avenue to seek justice. At Dolt, Thompson, Shepherd & Conway, PSC, our attorneys can help you file a claim and recover the financial compensation you and your family deserve. While no amount of money can reverse your diagnosis or bring a lost loved one back, it can provide some semblance of closure and justice for what happened.
