Camp LeJeune Poisoning Injuries

For decades, over a million of our nation’s dedicated service members and their families were poisoned by contaminated drinking water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. Fortunately, recently enacted legislation empowers people to recover damages for their injuries.

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act, a bipartisan bill signed into law in August 2022, allows people to bring claims for compensation from the United States government if they spent at least 30 days at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987. During those years, drinking water at the base was contaminated with dangerous levels of chemicals linked to serious and potentially deadly conditions, including multiple cancers, Parkinson’s disease, infertility, birth defects, and other diseases. The government has admitted its wrongful conduct, and the new law allows those injured by the contamination—or their survivors—to legally pursue their claims.

People who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune—whether as service members, civilian workers, or family members—and who have suffered from health problems as a result deserve compensation. With years of experience fighting for individuals and communities harmed by environmental pollution—including water contamination—DiCello Levitt’s attorneys led by Mark DiCello, co-founder of DiCello Levitt, represent thousands of military members and their families who suffered catastrophic injuries and death from the toxic water supply at Camp Lejeune. DiCello Levitt’s team seeks billions of dollars to compensate their clients who have suffered debilitating injuries from the misconduct of the U.S. Government in poisoning the water supply at Camp Lejeune.
