The military has typically dismissed claims related to Camp Lejeune water contamination, but because of the recently passed “Camp Lejeune Justice Act,” service members who have suffered serious health issues, including breast cancer, can once again file claims seeking compensation for their injuries. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act cleared the Senate in a final vote on the larger PACT Act on August 2, 2022.

Did Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune Cause Breast Cancer?
Camp Lejeune water contamination may have caused breast cancer, along with other cancers and illnesses, according to numerous victims. The chemical contamination found at Camp Lejeune is strongly linked to the development of breast cancer, and we believe these scientific connections will strengthen future lawsuits.
Evidence that Camp Lejeune Water Caused Breast Cancer
Between 1953 and 1987, a variety of chemical contaminants contaminated the water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, including trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, benzene, and other substances. There has been much speculation about whether the water contaminants at Camp Lejeune are connected to breast cancer, but the connection has been well documented.
Scientific research supporting a connection between Camp Lejeune water contamination and breast cancer includes:
- A 2011 study of residents of Cape Cod, Massachusetts that found a link between PCE contamination in drinking water and an elevated risk for breast cancer.
- A 2009 study that examined the risk of breast cancer after occupational benzene exposure in a show factory in Italy, which found that women who were regularly exposed to benzene had a moderately elevated risk for breast cancer.
- An EPA report that examined and confirmed a potentially causal relationship between TCE exposure and various cancers, including breast cancer.
In short, the chemicals found in the water at Camp Lejeune are known carcinogens that have been linked to elevated risks of breast cancer. If you were exposed to this contaminated water and later developed breast cancer or other cancers, you may have a claim for compensation in a Camp Lejeune breast cancer lawsuit. Please call 1-800-525-7111 for a free, no-obligation consultation with an experienced Camp Lejeune cancer lawyer at Riddle & Brantley.
We don’t get paid unless you do. If you don’t receive compensation for your breast cancer claim, you won’t pay any attorney fees. It’s as simple as that.
Don’t wait — the longer you wait to file a Camp Lejeune lawsuit, the harder it may be to prove your claim and get you the compensation you deserve.
How to File a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit for Breast Cancer
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act, passed as part of the PACT Act on August 2, 2022, makes it possible for victims of this chemical exposure to bring their claims forward. The Navy previously refuted all claims regarding the water contamination, but the Camp Lejeune Justice Act now allows service members, their families, and civilian workers who were affected to hold the federal government accountable for diseases they may have sustained due to this contamination.
