Advocates for Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Victims

SGGH is dedicated to seeking justice for hundreds of thousands of military personnel and their families stationed at the Camp Lejeune military base in North Carolina who were exposed to hazardous water. From 1953 to 1987, servicemen and their families unknowingly used and consumed water tainted with harmful chemicals. The toxic substances present in Camp Lejeune’s water have been linked to severe and even fatal conditions, including various forms of cancer. This exposure has led to the suffering of committed military personnel and their families, who are now at heightened risk of debilitating diseases and other health issues.

About Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

An independent investigation revealed alarming findings regarding the quality of drinking water sourced from the Tarawa Terrace and Hadnot Point water treatment facilities at Camp Lejeune. Over an extended period, these water sources were found to be gravely compromised. The analysis revealed the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as benzene, vinyl chloride, and perchloroethylene at profoundly hazardous levels within the water. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designates minuscule daily exposure to VOCs as “safe,” but the contamination levels at Camp Lejeune have soared beyond this safety threshold by an astounding factor of over 400 times.

As you can imagine that has left hundreds of thousands of men and women exposed to harmful contaminants. The contamination is believed to have stemmed from both inadequate chemical storage practices onsite and offsite at an adjoining industrial property. Despite years of awareness among camp administrators and the federal government regarding the contamination risk, minimal actions were taken to caution and safeguard the servicemen and women who faithfully served and toiled at Camp Lejeune for decades, as well as their cherished family members.

This is why you need a Camp Lejeune lawyer on your side. SGGH can work with you to fight for the compensation you deserve if you’ve been exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.
