Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit

Justice for our veterans, their families, and contracted civilians who served, worked or lived at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between the years of 1953 to 1987 is just around the corner. Individuals can obtain military records that can provide details of where and when their loved ones served at Camp Lejeune by going to:


This new bi-partisan supported bill will allow Camp Lejeune contaminated water victims to pursue legal action against the U.S. Government.

Description Of Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

Camp Lejeune, a United States Marine Corps base located in North Carolina, experienced a significant water contamination problem. The poor water quality affected the health and well-being of military personnel, their families, and civilian employees who lived on the base between the 1950s and 1980s. The contamination was primarily caused by various hazardous chemicals that leached into the base’s drinking water supply.

The main pollutants identified in the Camp Lejeune water supply were volatile organic compounds, including trichloroethylene, perchloroethylene, benzene, and vinyl chloride. These chemicals are commonly used in industrial processes, solvents, and cleaning agents. The contaminated water was due to leaking storage tanks, unhealthy disposal practices, and spills at several facilities on the base, including a dry cleaner, a metal plating shop, and an industrial area.

For years, the contaminated water was unknowingly consumed by the residents of Camp Lejeune, leading to long-term health issues. The base population, which included service members, their families, and civilian employees, was exposed to these toxic substances through drinking, bathing, cooking, and other everyday uses of water.

The health effects associated with the water contamination at Camp Lejeune were extensive and severe. The most notable health conditions linked to exposure to the contaminated water include various forms of cancer (such as leukemia, liver cancer, kidney cancer, and bladder cancer), as well as reproductive disorders, birth defects, and other chronic illnesses.

In response to the water contamination issue, the U.S. government and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have acknowledged the responsibility to provide healthcare and compensation to affected individuals. The Veterans Administration implemented the Camp Lejeune Family Member Program, which offers medical care to eligible family members who resided at Camp Lejeune between 1957 and 1987 and have been diagnosed with any of the specified conditions associated with the water contamination.

Efforts have also been made to address the environmental cleanup of the affected areas at Camp Lejeune. The base has implemented extensive remediation measures to remove and treat contaminated soil and groundwater, ensuring that the water supply is safe for current and future residents.

The water contamination problem at Camp Lejeune serves as a tragic example of the detrimental impact that environmental pollution can have on human health. It has highlighted the importance of strict regulations, monitoring, and remediation efforts to safeguard water supplies and protect communities from such hazards.

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with cancer or other severe disease resulting from Camp Lejeune drinking water, you need to call me now. These diseases are horrific, and life changing for you and your family members. Yes, the issues were recognized, and steps have been taken to help, but it’s not enough. It does not negate the fact your whole life was turned upside down, for serving this great country! I have fought hard and successfully for my clients for over 40 years. Call me today, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Toxins Found In Water At Camp Lejeune

For more than 30 years, base workers, veterans and their families were continually exposed to Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in the drinking water. The toxins included:


Benzene is a highly flammable and volatile organic compound (VOC) that is commonly used as a solvent in various industries. It is a colorless liquid with a sweet odor. Benzene is widely used in chemical manufacturing, oil refining, and rubber production as a solvent. However, prolonged exposure to benzene, either through inhalation or skin contact, can have severe health effects. Benzene is known to be carcinogenic and has been linked to the development of leukemia and other blood-related cancers. Due to its hazardous nature, strict regulations are in place to limit exposure to benzene in occupational and environmental settings.


Tetrachloroethylene, also known as perchloroethylene or PCE, is a widely used non-flammable solvent companies may use. It is a colorless liquid with a sharp, sweet odor. PCE is commonly used in dry cleaning, metal degreasing, and textile processing. It can easily contaminate air, water, and soil due to its volatile nature. Prolonged exposure to tetrachloroethylene can lead to adverse health effects, including liver and kidney damage, as well as central nervous system disorders. It has been classified as a probable human carcinogen, with an increased risk of developing certain types of cancer, such as bladder cancer. Strict handling and disposal practices are necessary to prevent environmental contamination and protect human health. The proper disposal of tetrachloroethylene was not exhibited at Camp Lejeune, and as a result thousands of men, woman and children continue to suffer the consequences. You deserved better, and now you deserve to recover compensation for your injuries.


Trichloroethylene is another colorless liquid with a sweet odor that is normally used as an industrial solvent. It is widely employed for degreasing metal parts, electronics manufacturing, and as a cleaning agent. TCE can contaminate air, soil, and water through improper disposal practices or leaks. Exposure to trichloroethylene over a long period has been associated with various health problems. It can cause damage to the liver, kidneys, and the central nervous system. Moreover, TCE has been classified as a carcinogen and has been linked to an increased risk of developing certain cancers, such as kidney and liver cancer. Strict safety measures and proper handling are crucial to minimize exposure and prevent its harmful effects.

Vinyl Chloride

Vinyl chloride is also a colorless gas with a slightly sweet odor. Used in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a widely used plastic. Vinyl chloride can enter the environment through the manufacturing and disposal of PVC products. Inhalation of vinyl chloride can cause damage to the respiratory system, including irritation of the respiratory tract and lungs. Vinyl chloride has been linked to an increased risk of developing angiosarcoma, a rare form of liver cancer, as well as other liver-related diseases. Occupational exposure to vinyl chloride is regulated to ensure worker safety, and proper disposal practices are important to prevent its release into the environment and protect public health.

The brave people serving their country, and their families unknowingly experienced toxic water contamination at Camp Lejeune. If you were on the base between the 1950s and 1980s, call me today for your free consultation!

As is the case with all legal claims, it is important to gather evidence to support your claim.  Evidence may include:

  • Military service records
  • Proof of residence at Camp Lejeune
  • Proof of contract work
  • Medical records
  • Medical bills
  • Disability benefits or VA compensation


Damages Sought In A Camp Lejeune Lawsuit

You may be entitled to receive substantial compensation for:

Medical Expenses

Medical bills refer to the expenses incurred for medical services, treatments, medications, and procedures received by an individual, often resulting from injuries or illnesses. These can include hospital charges, doctor fees, diagnostic tests, prescriptions, and rehabilitation costs.

Lost Wages

Lost wages represent the income or earnings that an individual is unable to earn due to an injury, illness, or disability. These include the wages or salary they would have received during the period of absence from work, as well as any future earning potential that may be affected by the condition.

Permanent Disability

This is the long-term or lifelong impairment or condition that significantly limits a person’s ability to perform essential daily activities or work tasks. Often resulting in functional limitations or the inability to engage in gainful employment, the toxic exposure may have caused your permanent injury.

Pain and Suffering

Encompassing the physical and emotional distress experienced by an individual as a result of an injury, illness, or accident, this include you and your family. You may have experienced physical pain, mental anguish, emotional trauma, and the negative impact on the overall quality of life.

Loss of Earning Capacity

The inability to make the money you’ve been accustomed to may chance your whole lifestyle. The diminished ability of an individual to earn income or wages in the future due to an injury, disability, or medical condition, is devastating. It may result in reduced work opportunities, career limitations, or the need for job modifications.

Loss of Consortium

Loss of consortium refers to the loss or deprivation of the benefits and companionship that a person may experience as a result of the injury, disability, or death of their spouse or close family member.

I am fighting for you, your medical bills, your disability compensation, and more! The contaminated water exposure that went on from the 1950s to the 1980s at Camp Lejeune is inexcusable!

It really comes down to what people say and do when they don't think anyone that matters is listening or they'll get... anything in return.There's the Tim Misny you see on the billboards and on TV, but there's another Tim Misny that I know up close and personal.The Tim Misny I know is genuinely passionate about helping the hard working little folks who get pushed around the big folks. He actually, really honestly cares about people who run into bad luck at no fault of their own. Tim has quietly, out of the sight of cameras and with no fanfare shared generously with the marginalized in our society; single moms, Veterans and others without expecting anything in return.He calls them like he sees them and you wouldn't want to take your troubles to anyone more

Mr. Misny is the best! I am a 27-year-old single mother, and I am finishing law school in May at Cleveland-Marshall... College of Law. When I found myself jobless during the height of the pandemic, I knew I needed help. Going into the legal profession, I wanted to be JUST LIKE Mr. Misny because I knew he was the most successful attorney in the industry. I called him up one day just for the hell of it to see if there was anyway he could help me. I never thought such a big name/reputation like him would respond to me. However, when he learned of my financial situation he PERSONALLY called my cell phone within 5 minutes of my email. Not only has he helped me secure employment, but he continues to teach me every single day what it takes to be the BEST lawyer in the legal profession. I am forever thankful for Mr. Misny. He changed my life. He continues to inspire me every single day, and I am so proud that he took me under his wing and is my mentor. He is the most intelligent, kindest, caring attorney I have ever met, and he is giving me the tools I need to be the most successful lawyer I can be o give my four-year-old son, Gregory, the life he deserves. THANK YOU MR. TIM MISNY. I owe my entire future legal career to you because if you didn't take the time out of your busy day to call me that day and help me when no one else would, I would not have been able to stay in law school. You change lives every single day. Keep being you Tim. There is no one like Tim more

If I could reach into the sky just to pull more than 5 stars down for a rating I would! I have used other lawyers in... the past and it was such a pain to reach them when I needed them. Tim is in all honesty there for you. He gave me his personal phone number, and at anytime or any day he answered. If I had to leave a message I could count to 10 and he would already be calling me back. He also was willing to talk on the weekends! He didn’t just forward me to an impersonal automated system or a person with no experience. I will NEVER use another person for legal advice. He’s gracious enough to give me guidance whenever I have a question. No matter how complex. This may sound like an advertisement but I assure you this man was more in touch when I had an issue than my own family. A reasonable and caring family man who will MAKE THEM PAY!Thank you Timread more

Tim has created a highly visible and effective law practice, and despite his decades of experience, he has never once... forgotten why he got into this business in the first place: to help people. He puts his whole heart into his work, and he works hard for everyone he represents. He has a gift for tuning out the noise and tuning into the core of what his clients need, and making it clear he has heard them. As a result, we feel empowered. He is smart, resourceful, creative, positive, and solution-oriented. His abundant energy makes people feel better, stronger, and valued. He loves and promotes his community; he gives back generously, and he always leaves everything better than he found it. Tim is a true man of action, and a man of his word. Could not recommend him more more

As a young man, I worked at a local garden center. I came from a family that had too many problems to list. I felt I... was never destined to be anything good. I had always wanted to be a police officer since I was a little boy. But, one side of my family told me that I would never be good enough to do it. Anytime I brought it up, they knocked me down until I started to believe that I could never accomplish my dream. One day, about 20 years ago, while working at that garden center, a very tall man came in and asked me to help him select plants. As we walked around the garden center, he struck up a conversation with me. He was very friendly and kind. I was a skinny teenager in dirty blue jeans and a t shirt. This man was dressed very nicely and I was surprised at how nice he was to me. During our conversation, he asked me what I wanted to do with my life after school. I told him that I wanted to be a police officer but many people told me that I’d never make it. I told him how my very own father said I wasn’t smart enough, brave enough, and I was wasting my time. I remember looking at the ground while I explained this to him. The man stopped and got serious. His voice dropped an octave and he looked me dead in the eyes. He pointed his finger at me and told me that I could make anything of my life that I wanted. He told me that it was up to ME to make my life goals come true. He told me to ignore anybody who tells me otherwise. He assured me that if I studied hard in school and never gave up on my dreams that they would become a reality. He told me to say it. I said “I can do it”. In that moment, I thought that if a complete stranger saw something in me, than maybe it could be true.After I helped him through the checkout and he left, many different employees at the garden center asked me if I knew who that man was. I did not. They told me, “That’s Tim Misny!” Once I figured out “who” Tim Misny was, my confidence grew. It was a pivotal moment. One in which steered the rest of my life. His words stuck with me. I worked hard and obtained my Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice. I was hired by a local Law Enforcement Agency at the age of 21. I was sent to the Ohio State Highway Patrol Academy, which was an extremely tough place to be, to say the least. At the Academy, they try to break those who don’t have a determined spirit. On days I wanted to quit, I remembered Tim’s words. Maybe it was fate, maybe it was random chance.... I’ll never know But, Tim Misny helped me have the confidence and determination that was necessary to be where I’m at today. I’ve been a law enforcement officer for over 16 years. I’ve told this story to many of my coworkers.Tim, you’ll never understand how your words that spring day helped shape my future. Your words enabled me to provide a great life for myself and my family. I’m forever grateful.Mikeread more

Tim has represented me twice, once 30 years ago and again just recently. I was too young to fully appreciate his... expertise when he represented me the first time (as i was a minor who was the victim of an accident - he won for us, incidentally), but I'm old enough and wise enough now to really appreciate how truly great he is. First off, how many attorney's actually give you their cell phone number and actually answer? I would contend very, very few. Secondly, he has a street fighter mentality combined with a sharp legal intellect which makes you immediately think "I'm so glad this guy is on my side." I was really in a bind recently and Tim came through in spades - he is THE person I would call if I were in trouble or needed help - at a minimum he would know who I should talk to and direct me there (he knows his own limits, which is the key to a wise person) - at a maximum he would take on my fight himself and I'd have full confidence in his ability to deliver the best possible outcome for me - he fights for you like you're family - can't say it better than more

I don't know much about Tim the lawyer, but I do know about Tim the man. Tim the man befriended me as a youth and gave... me the motivation to excel in school. Tim the man wrote the letter that got me into college and got me a helpful scholarship. Tim the man gave me an internship while in college. Tim the man has been a friend to me for over ten years. He makes himself available day or night whether I need advice or just want to talk about the day. There a lot of stigmas about attorneys (and they are earned) but Tim Misny bucks the stereotype.
