The military has previously dismissed claims related to Camp Lejeune water contamination, but because of the recently passed “Camp Lejeune Justice Act,” (part of the larger PACT Act, passed by the Senate on August 2, 2022), service members who have suffered serious health issues may now file claims against the federal government seeking compensation for their injuries.
Did Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune Cause Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?
The water contaminants at Camp Lejeune may be responsible for service members later developing Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, along with other cancers and illnesses. The various chemicals found in the water at Camp Lejeune are strongly linked to the development of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which we believe makes any lawsuits brought against the Navy much more compelling.
Evidence that Camp Lejeune Water Caused Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Between 1953 and 1987, a number of chemical pollutants 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 debate about whether Camp Lejeune water contaminants are associated with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but in fact the connection has been well established.
Scientific research supporting a connection between Camp Lejeune water contamination and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma includes:
- An official statement by the NIH that links trichloroethylene (TCE) with an increased risk of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
- A 2010 study that explored how occupational exposure to TCE is linked to the later development of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This study found compelling evidence that this along with other chlorinated solvents increased the risk for NHL later in life.
- A 2006 study that also looked at occupational exposure to TCE and found an elevated risk for Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in workers who were regularly exposed.
In short, the chemicals found in the water at Camp Lejeune are already known carcinogens that have been linked to elevated risks of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in people who are regularly exposed to them. If you were exposed to this contaminated water and suffered NHL, you may have a claim for compensation in a Camp Lejeune non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) lawsuit.
Please call 1-800-525-7111 for a free, no-obligation consultation with an experienced Camp Lejeune cancer lawyer at Riddle & Brantley.
