Dublin Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawyer
Military veterans are always dealing with the consequences of serving our country. Many deal with injuries from war. Another issue they may have faced is water contamination. For decades, government officials were aware of toxic water contamination at Camp Lejeune, a U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp in North Carolina. However, they ignored the issue, forcing those affected by the contaminated water to suffer in silence.
Fortunately, that has changed. In August 2022, President Joe Biden signed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act into law, allowing those who suffered medical issues due to exposure to the Camp Lejeune drinking water to file a claim for compensation. If you lived, worked, or served at Camp Lejeune between August 1953 and December 1987, you may be entitled to compensation.
Oliver Law can help you proceed with a claim for compensation. Contact an experienced Dublin Camp Lejeune water contamination lawyer and see whether or not you are eligible to recover a potential settlement.
