Please call us at 1-800-525-7111 to discuss your case for free and with zero obligation. We are investigating these Camp Lejeune prostate cancer claims and would love to help military veterans get the justice they deserve.
Can I File a Claim for Prostate Cancer Due to Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune?
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which was recently passed on August 2, 2022 as part of the PACT Act, allows service members who were injured at Camp Lejeune to once again file compensation claims. The military has historically denied these claims, but because of this new legislation, service members who were harmed may now file a lawsuit directly in the Eastern District of North Carolina.
Riddle & Brantley routinely files claims and lawsuits in the Eastern District of North Carolina, and even has an office in Jacksonville, North Carolina, just miles away from Camp Lejeune. Many of our attorneys and staff have close family ties to the military, and we are determined to get justice for veterans, their families, and civilian workers who may have suffered from prostate cancers due to contaminated water. Please call 1-800-525-7111 for a free consultation.
We are committed to the veterans and their loved ones who have lived and worked at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and we are ready to help however we can.
“Those who have suffered prostate cancer after exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune deserve justice, and we are ready to fight.”

Did Contaminated Water at Camp Lejeune Cause Prostate Cancer?
Victims claim that an explosion of prostate cancer cases and other diseases among former service members, their families, and civilian workers may be linked to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Because scientific studies have linked the Camp Lejeune chemicals to prostate cancer development, we think future lawsuits will be strengthened by these connections.
Evidence that Camp Lejeune Water Caused Prostate Cancer
Scientific evidence suggests that chemicals released from improperly handled industrial waste may be linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancers, including prostate cancer. The contaminants found in the water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, between 1953 and 1987 include trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, benzene, and other substances.
Scientific research supporting a connection between the Camp Lejeune water contamination and prostate cancer includes:
- A 1996 publication in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine that showed a link between TCE exposure and an elevated risk for many cancers, including prostate cancer.
- AN ATSDR assessment that specifically studied the contaminants in Camp Lejeune water and found they were associated with various cancers, including prostate cancer.
- An EPA report that examined the relationship between TCE exposure and various cancers, including prostate cancer
Camp Lejeune water was contaminated with carcinogenic chemicals, and these chemicals have already been linked to elevated risks of prostate cancer and other cancers. If you were exposed to this contaminated water and later developed prostate or other cancers, you may be eligible for compensation in a Camp Lejeune cancer lawsuit. To receive a free, no-obligation consultation with an experienced Camp Lejeune cancer lawyer at Riddle & Brantley, please call 1-800-525-7111.
We don’t get paid unless you do. If you don’t receive compensation for your Camp Lejeune prostate cancer claim, you won’t pay any attorney fees. It’s as simple as that.
How to File a Camp Lejeune Prostate Cancer Claim
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act has made 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 Act, passed in June 20222, allows anyone who may have been affected to hold the federal government accountable for injuries they may have sustained due to this contamination.

- Were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune for 30 or more days between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987
- Were diagnosed with one of the following conditions:
