Attention Proud Marines! Camp Lejeune May Have Made You Sick. Personal Injury Lawyer New York: The Bronx
Serving New York: The Bronx | Grand Concourse | Riverdale | Pelham | Fordham | Co-op City
Men and women from The Bronx signed up to serve their country and chose the toughest branch of the Armed Forces to do their service: The Marines.
We all know that Marines don’t complain; Marines can take one on the chin and get up; and most importantly, Marines are loyal and live up to the motto Semper Fi. Sadly, the federal government wasn’t loyal in return, and for many years Camp Lejeune, one of the most active Marine Corps bases, was poisoning those brave men and women serving our country and the government was not addressing the problem.
In the early 1980s, toxic compounds were identified in Camp Lejeune’s water supply due to the Marines disposing of poisonous chemicals by burying them on the base. These seeped down into the drinking water source and Marines housed on Camp Lejeune drank and bathed in this water.
It took 40 years, but the government is coming clean, Congress finally acted and today you are able to collect damages for things that happened to you because of the negligence of our government. The personal injury law firm of Feiner & Lavy is here to help residents of the Bronx fight for their injury by holding the government accountable and seeking the maximum level of compensation available to you!
You may have lost a spouse, parent, child or sibling who served in the Marines and was stationed at Camp Lejeune due to one of the horrible diseases below. Or you personally may have become sick with one of these diseases after being housed on that base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Either way, you have a claim and Feiner & Lavy is ready to help you and your family get the justice you deserve.
There are a lot of different illnesses and conditions that have been connected to the contaminants, including female infertility, miscarriages and birth defects. Some illnesses or conditions that seem subtle, unrelated, or just a fact of life may, unfortunately, have resulted from drinking the water at Camp Lejeune. By calling Feiner & Lavy today, you can begin the process of investigating whether your illness was caused at Camp Lejeune, and you can begin pursuing the settlement you deserve from the federal government.
Many types of cancer have been linked to this contamination, including bladder, kidney, liver, esophageal, breast, bladder, lung, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and others. And several blood diseases and disorders have been identified, including leukemia, aplastic anemia, and myelodysplastic syndromes. There are also neurological/cognitive diseases that have been traced to exposure to Camp Lejeune’s drinking water.
The investigation into this has also identified several housing areas that were affected by the contamination, including Tarawa Terrace, Midway Park, Berkeley Manor, Paradise Point, Hadnot Point, Hospital Point, and Watkins Village.
You are a tough and proud Marine. It’s an identity you will proudly display for the rest of your life. But today, the branch of the service that you love and have been loyal to must be held accountable.
