Did Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune Cause Parkinson’s Disease?
The water contaminants at Camp Lejeune may be responsible for service members later developing Parkinson’s disease, along with other cancers and illnesses, as alleged by thousands of victims and plaintiffs’ counsel. There are strong scientific connections between certain contaminants in the Camp Lejeune water and Parkinson’s disease, which we believe will make cases brought against the Navy for these injuries very compelling.
Evidence That Camp Lejeune Water Caused Parkinson’s Disease
Between 1953 and 1987, a number of chemical pollutants from a local dry cleaning operation contaminated the water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, including trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, benzene, and other chemical solvents. Significant evidence suggests that these contaminants may have caused Parkinson’s disease in veterans, family members, and civilian workers who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune.
Scientific research supporting a connection between Camp Lejeune water contamination and Parkinson’s disease includes:
- A 2020 study that found a connection between environmental TCE exposure and an elevated risk of Parkinson’s disease.
- A 2008 study that explored how exposure to TCE in an industrial setting may be linked to the later development of Parkinson’s disease. This study found particularly compelling evidence that even workers that were indirectly exposed to TCE exhibited neurodegenerative effects similar to Parkinson’s.
- A 2012 study that looked for links between chlorinated solvents like TCE and the potential for an elevated risk of neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s.
Camp Lejeune’s water was already suspected to be carcinogenic, and is now strongly linked to increased instances of Parkinson’s disease in people who were frequently exposed to it. In addition to other cancers, you may be able to file a claim for compensation if you were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune and later developed Parkinson’s disease.
