The Full Story

Over a million individuals have been affected by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Many of these individuals and their family members will qualify for compensation due to injuries and illnesses from exposure to the contaminated/toxic water at Camp Lejeune. As a physician with specialized medical training, as well as a successful trial lawyer, Dr. Bradshaw can help locate key medical records and analyze them to determine if you qualify for compensation.



Between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, water at Camp Lejeune was contaminated with toxic chemicals. While those various chemicals number in the hundreds, some of the more toxic chemicals were industrial solvents trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PCE) and a chemical called benzene. These chemicals are carcinogenic, known to cause cancer. Additionally, some of the chemicals are known to cause birth defects when a baby is exposed in-utero (during pregnancy), miscarriages and in some cases, babies being born dead, still-birth.

There were two water systems involved in this contamination, the Tarawa Terrace and Hadnot Point water-treatment plants. These plants served enlisted-family housing, barracks for unmarried service personnel, base administrative offices, schools, and recreational areas. The Hadnot Point water system also served the base hospital and an industrial area and supplied water to housing on the Holcomb Boulevard water system (full-time until 1972 and periodically thereafter).
