The Camp Lejeune Justice Act — passed on August 2, 2022 as part of the PACT Act) enables those who suffered injuries potentially due to contaminated water file claims directly against the federal government.

Did Camp Lejeune Contaminated Water Cause Ovarian Cancer?
Victims claim that an explosion of ovarian cancer cases and other diseases among former service members, family members, and civilian workers may be linked to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. We believe the scientific evidence will support ovarian cancer claims filed against the federal government alleging that the water contamination on base between 1953 and 1987 caused ovarian cancer and other diseases.
Evidence That Water at Camp Lejeune Caused Ovarian Cancer
According to scientific studies, chemicals from improperly handled industrial waste may be connected to an increased risk of certain kinds of cancer and other health issues, including immune and neurological problems. Between 1953 and 1987, trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, benzene, and other substances were found in the water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina.
There is significant scientific research connecting these contaminants with an increased risk for ovarian cancer, including:
- A 1996 publication in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine that showed a link between TCE exposure and an elevated risk of ovarian cancer and other cancers.
- An ATSDR assessment that specifically studied the contaminants in Camp Lejeune water and found they were associated with various cancers, including ovarian cancer.
- An EPA report that examined the relationship between TCE exposure and various cancers, including ovarian cancer
Camp Lejeune water was contaminated with carcinogenic chemicals, and a clear correlation has been made between these chemicals and ovarian cancer. If you were exposed to this contaminated water and suffered from ovarian cancer, you may be eligible for a claim.
