How Do I Register for a Class Action Lawsuit for Contaminated Water in USMC?

Class action lawsuits can be some of the most fascinating legal actions in contemporary times. Because the nature of these suits affect a large number of people by definition, they also tend to attract an awful lot of media attention. They speak to the underdog in all of us, and they can also appeal to our universal need to come across unpredicted sums of money. Usually they involve being exposed to something unhealthy, against our will, so anyone could potentially be a victim if they were unfortunate enough to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. This is certainly what’s happening with Camp Lejeune, and here we’ll discuss your options if you feel you might have been affected.

The case is revolving around water contamination. The Marine base at Camp Lejeune was connected to water sources that are now known to have been contaminated, with a level of toxic solvents that made it unsuitable for human consumption. This happened between the years 1957 and 1987, so it was something that was a considerable health risk for 30 years, and the toxins have been linked to birth defects and cancers. To make matters worse, it seems as though there is evidence that it was known to be toxic in the early 60s, and so much of the damage could possibly have been prevented.

Some say that this is the worst case of contamination in history, and there were thousands and thousands of military people, their families, and residents who were exposed, and the numbers could come close to one million. This class action suit is a very hot topic, then, and there are many ways to investigate to see if you might be eligible to register in the class action. The main offices in charge of the suit are North Carolina’s Anderson Pangia and Associates, and Pennsylvania’s Smorto, Persio, Webb and McGill. Contacting them could be a good first step, or you could also contact any experienced attorney that you trust, and they can help put you in touch with the right people.

Please note:  This is an informational site.  We do not sign people up for lawsuits.

  15. Maria Rocco Says:

    To whom it may concern:

    I was sent a letter by the ATSDR which I received in the mail on Friday, August 26, 2011 regarding my brother, Mark Rocco, who served in the USMC during the time the water contamination was rampant at Camp Lejenue. Mr. Rocco was diagnosed with an oligodendroglioma of the brain in 1998 and died in October of 2009 when there were no other treatments available to treat his brain tumor. Please notify me if my family can be part of the class action law suit. Mark Rocco has a surviving daughter who is 18 years of age.

  38. Renee Hendricks Says:

    I was a victim of the Toxic Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune, NC when I lived on base in Midway Park in 1981-1982 while married to a US Marine – Warren Hendricks Jr. at the time. I cooked,bathed, and drank the water there. I was preganant at the time as well and my son was born there. I suffered greatly during delivery at Camp Lejeune Hospital and had to have a C-Section. The medical doctors stated that every contraction I had, my unborn son’s heart rate was dropping. We also socialized with friends at Taraw Terrace where we drank water there as well. I came down with breast cancer March 1992 at 30 years of age. No family history of breast cancer. I have suffered much with the loss of my breast at such a young age and it has damaged me physically, mentally, and emotionally. I still am receiving counseling. I never had a breast implant. I can’t begin to tell you how this affects past and present relationships and has caused 2 divorces in my life. Attorneys have already contacted my ex-husband who I was married to while living on base and drinking the water, but they haven’t contacted me. Please include me in this class action law suit. Thank you

Please send me more information on this case. Thank you.

  41. Carolyn Thomason (Vernon) Says:

    My husband (now deceased) died of cancer in 2007. He was a marine and we were at Cherry Point from 1965 – 1966. The doctors did not find the primary site of his cancer. He didn’t know he had it until it had already taken over his liver, one kidney, and into his lungs. My thyroid became overactive, diagnosed in 1985, and was treated with radio active iodine to destroy it. Does the water contamination also include Cherry Point residents? Please advise.

    I received 2 letters from ATSDR about contaminated water @ Lejeune. I have been affected. How can I join the class action suit?

  48. Fred Says:

    We were moved from Midway Park over to Terrible Terrace II in 85. We called base housing about the roaches and the water serveral times to be told the water was fine. It was so obvious the water was bad, especially hot water would foam and the smell of dry cleaning chemicals were too strong to ignore. We couldn’t use it to cook, drink and for laundry we went to a laundrymat. Kept gallons of water in house. My wife called a civilian water testing company and they refused to test the water as we were on a Federal Property. Next float coming up within next few months. Instead of my wife staying there with the water and bugs, she moved out and we gave up base housing. For the next 20 years we never lived on base again. I have heart problems – only one in a family with 4 boys and one girl. My wife has breathing problems and was hospitalized several times while living there. They knew the water was bad and so did the civilians that didn’t want to test and step on government toes.

    I was born at camp lejeune in oct 66 with mild spinabifida. I am currently 100% disabled, with all kinds of health issues I never understood until I heard about the contamination last month.

Any help would be appreciated..Cynthia

  64. John Moss Jr. Says:

    Hello,My Father (Captain John C. Moss) was stationed in Camp LeJeune in the 60’s and my mother, four sisters and myself lived there. My father died in 1981, 2 years after the marine corp made him retire and one year after Reagan cut off benefits for widows. My mother has had it tough her whole life because she ended up with nothing from the government. How does one respect the government after what my family has gone through and even though I live in this great country I know now that it’s not about our country but about the people in our government only looking out for their own benefit.I know that they reinstated the benefits back to our widows during desert storm but she was not reinstated. So what should I do knowing I drink from that place and might get sick from it. If there is anyone out there who know, tell me…..John

  68. robin d johnson Says:

    I was married to a US marine and we moved to base housing Tawara Terrace.When I got pregnant with twins we moved to base housing on Camp Lejuene. I had surgery after my delivery and had a mild infarction. I was told that the surgery went well except for that happening on the operating table. I later moved from Camp Lejuene and had a heart related episode which was called idiopathic cardiomyopathy (heart attack from an unknown orgin). I was there when the water was contaminated for about 5yrs, 1987-19921..How do I apply for that class action suit.

    How do I find out about or sign up for any class action suit related to this.

  71. Michael Scott McCracken Says:

    I was born in Quantico VA. at the military base in Dec 1967 and spent the first 2 years of my life at Camp Lejeune. I spent most of my life dealing with fatigue issues and still do as a result of Sarcoidosis. I also developed a distinct bowing (about 20 degrees or more) of my right arm that wasn’t present when I was born but appeared while being nursed by my mother while at the camp. I tried to use the contact form at Anderson Pangia but it sent me to an error page. Maybe its full or something? I left a phone message with them on 4/9/13 we’ll see what happens. Back in 2000 I contacted the other law firm. I have no idea if they added me or just forgot about it after they hung up the phone so we’ll see if the Pangia folks contact me back. Anyway… I wanted to get put on the action list.

    I lived on base with my marine husband and my little girl who was just a toddler from 1989-1993. My husband all of the sudden was showing signs of mental illness. He had never shown signs before. I became pregnant with my son while on base, delivered him on base and stayed on base until he was 10 months. He was born with a severe and rare birth defect. They would not diagnose him, the doctors on base just kept telling me not to worry about his deformities and that he was okay. I moved off base to Idaho where the doctors diagnosed him the day after I got here with a life threatening birth defect and he had to have his entire head reconstructed. I was diagnosed with cancer several years later. Please help.
