You May Qualify for Compensation If You Suffered Renal Toxicity Because of Contaminated Water at Camp Lejeune
Renal toxicity or nephrotoxicity is kidney damage that exposure to certain toxic chemicals can cause. Renal toxicity symptoms include fatigue, weakness, swelling in the feet and ankles, nausea and vomiting, decreased appetite, and frequent urination. Renal toxicity is often a precursor to more severe illnesses.
The U.S. Marine Corps base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina contained water filled with dangerous chemicals. Two of the most dangerous chemicals were trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PCE). Research from the National Research Council (NRC) Committee on Contaminated Drinking Water at Camp Lejeune linked these chemicals to renal toxicity.
If you lived in Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 and suffered kidney disease, you may be able to recover financial compensation for medical bills and other damages.
Amount of Compensation You May Be Entitled to
The amount of compensation you could receive for kidney damage that exposure to Camp Lejeune water caused depends on many factors, including:
- The severity of your medical condition
- The medical expenses and other expenses resulting from the condition
- How the condition affects your life
Compensation for Medical Expenses
Renal toxicity can lead to high medical costs. You may have needed ambulance transportation to the emergency room, hospital care, doctor’s visits, medications, or even dialysis. Individuals who suffer severe kidney damage may even require a kidney transplant. You may be entitled to reimbursement for these expenses.
Lost Income After Missing Work
Individuals suffering from renal toxicity often have to miss work. If medical problems forced you to take time off from your job, you could receive compensation for your lost earnings. If an illness has permanently affected your ability to work, you could receive compensation for lost earning capacity.
Pain and Suffering
Renal toxicity can cause painful and uncomfortable symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, and swelling. Some sufferers experience much worse symptoms and even require dialysis. You may be eligible for compensation for these physical and psychological traumas.
Loss of Quality of Life
Renal toxicity’s effects may be long-lasting and severe, resulting in a decreased quality of life. You can pursue compensation to help you cope with this loss.

Protecting Your Rights as a Camp Lejeune Victim
No one should have to deal with medical problems caused by contaminants in their drinking water. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act is an important step toward holding negligent parties accountable for the contamination and the impact the contamination had on the service members stationed at Camp Lejeune. The act gives certain individuals the right to file a lawsuit against the government and demand monetary compensation for the water contamination’s harm on their lives.

We can also represent you during negotiations and communications with the federal government. We will not let you settle for less than you need and deserve.
