Average Value of Camp Lejeune Tourette’s Syndrome – Lawsuit
What Is the ATSDR and How Does It Help Identify Chemical Hazards at Camp Lejeune?
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry or the ATSDR notes that children, pregnant women and all workers at the Military Base at Camp Lejeune may have been exposed to hazardous chemicals during their time living and working on that base. The exposure to hazardous chemicals was in the form of soil and groundwater contamination. There was also indoor air contamination of chemicals that were airborne in the offices and other building structures within that facility.
People are now affected and sick with many different types of diseases, based on this dangerous and hazardous exposure to TCE and PCE. TCE and PCE are chemicals that are used usually in the manufacturing process. The chemicals related to TCE are nonflammable, colorless and liquid used to remove grease from metal parts, are in adhesives and paint removers. The PCE chemicals are also nonflammable and are used in the dry-cleaning process to remove grease as well. PCE can sometimes be called perchloroethylene or PERC.

Are There Any Protections for the Unborn Children of Mothers Who Were Pregnant at Camp Lejeune Who Are Victims of Toxic Environmental Exposure?
Yes, there are similar protections for the unborn children of mothers who were pregnant at Camp Lejeune, when there was the toxic exposure to hazardous chemicals that may have caused their babies to develop Tourette’s Syndrome. Generally speaking, Tourette’s Syndrome is characterized by chronic tic disorders and involuntary movements by someone with this condition. The tics are usually verbal or motor in nature, and can include:
- Vocal tics
- Motor tics
- Sudden movements
- Rapid movements
- Recurring movements
- Nasal sounds
- Respiratory sounds
- Clearing throat
- Complex vocalizations
- Speech blocking
- Behavioral symptoms
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHA)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Lifetime of behavioral disorders
How Do People with Tourette’s Syndrome Manage Their Disorder?
People with Tourette’s Syndrome may need to take behavioral and pharmacological interventions to try to get the tics under control. This is difficult to manage in children, as their tics are often just developing, and may be hard to correctly diagnose.
People who lived and worked at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, in Jacksonville, North Carolina were exposed to harsh and dangerous chemicals that could trigger Tourette’s Syndrome, such as:
- Trichloroethylene (TCE)
- Tetrachloroethylene (PCE)
- Vinyl chloride (VC) and benzene
If you were harmed by any of these hazardous and dangerous substances, you can give us a call at the DTLA Law Group immediately. We can discuss initiating a lawsuit for you on the merits of your personal injury claim, from living and working at Camp Lejeune and being exposed to dangerous substances.
What Is the Camp Lejeune Justice Act?
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act allows anyone who lived or worked at the base from August 1, 1953, to December 31, 1987, for at least 30 days, exposed to the contaminated water and suffered injuries, to file a claim against the U.S. government. You are permitted to file a claim in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Northern Carolina to recover damages and personal injuries from exposure to hazardous chemicals in the water at Camp Lejeune from 1953 to 1985.
Pregnant women who were exposed to environmental benzene hazards at Camp Lejeune, may have exposed their infants to a neurological issue that would be developed later in the child’s life. Benzene exposures and contamination can result in effects that work to severely restrict the natural and safe development of the fetus. This type of hazardous exposure can lead to developmental delays and the later development of Tourette’s Syndrome, from hazardous exposures to toxins at Camp Lejeune.
