Did Contaminated Water at Camp Lejeune Cause Bladder Cancer?
Many victims allege that water contamination at Camp Lejeune caused bladder cancer, as well as other diseases and cancers. There is strong scientific evidence suggesting a connection between Camp Lejeune water contamination and bladder cancer. This evidence may be cited in future bladder cancer lawsuits.
Evidence that Camp Lejeune Water Caused Bladder Cancer
Camp Lejeune’s water was polluted with a variety of chemicals between 1953 and 1987, due to improper disposal of dry-cleaning chemicals from a nearby dry-cleaning operation. These chemicals included trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, benzene, and other substances. Bladder cancer has been connected to many of the contaminants found in Camp Lejeune’s water.
Scientific research supporting a connection between Camp Lejeune water contamination and bladder cancer includes:
- A 2016 study published in the International Journal of Cancer found that occupational exposure to TCE, toluene, benzene, and other VOCs was associated with a higher risk for bladder cancer.
- A 2014 study published in Environmental Health Perspective evaluated the connection between TCE and bladder cancer in dry-cleaning workers and found there to be an increased risk for bladder cancer in workers regularly exposed to dry-cleaning chemicals containing TCE.
This is especially significant in this case because the source of the contamination at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune was the improper disposal of dry-cleaning chemicals.
Victims of Camp Lejeune water contamination between 1953 and 1987 may have a claim for compensation as the connection between VOCs, vinyl chloride, benzene, and bladder cancer is well-documented. Please call 1-800-525-7111 to speak with an experienced Camp Lejeune bladder cancer lawyer at Riddle & Brantley for a free, no-obligation consultation.
We don’t get paid unless you do. If you don’t receive compensation in your bladder cancer claim, you won’t pay any attorney fees. It’s as simple as that.
