Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

From 1953 to 1987, individuals residing or laboring at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, faced exposure to tainted water, resulting in fatalities, illnesses, and life-altering health issues. Even more troubling, high-ranking military officials were aware of these hazards and kept information about the issue hidden. The time has come for justice—for the courageous men and women who dedicated their service to our nation.

Lejeune Victims and Survivors®

J. Edward Bell has been at the forefront of the fight from the very beginning as a prominent advocate for the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. Working alongside distinguished attorneys and victims, Ed was instrumental in the passing of the legislation that was approved by Congress in 2022 and subsequently signed into law. The legislation granted those affected by the toxic water the ability to file claims against the government.

If you suspect that you may have been exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 and have subsequently received a diagnosis of bladder cancer, breast cancer, esophageal cancer, kidney cancer, lung cancer, leukemia, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, or any other health condition associated with this unfortunate event, we strongly urge you to reach out to us.
