Camp Lejeune: Neurological effects claims

Camp Lejeune: Neurological effects claims video

The term neurological effects refers to the detrimental consequences of a factor regarding the structure and function of the nervous system. Some of the most common neurological effects are delayed reaction time, as well as problems with short-term memory, visual perception, attention, and color vision. While the causes of neurological effects are numerous, recent medical studies found a strong connection between exposure to PFAS, a group of toxic chemicals, and these nervous system problems. PFAS were lurking in the drinking water at Camp Lejeune along with industrial solvents during the last century. If you were stationed at Camp Lejeune and came to struggle with neurological effects, you might be eligible for compensation, which our skilled attorneys can help you obtain.

Claim Application

Because solvents are neurotoxic, exposure to the drinking water at Camp Lejeune can result in neurological effects

Neurological effects

The structural, biochemical, or electrical abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord, or other nerves, which are collectively known as neurological effects, can lead to the development of a wide range of symptoms. Some of these symptoms are paralysis, muscle weakness, poor coordination, loss of sensation, seizures, confusion, pain, and altered levels of consciousness. Neurological effects take a heavy toll on both the physical and the mental health of the sufferers.

The most common physical symptoms concerning neurological effects include:

  • partial or complete paralysis
  • muscle weakness
  • partial or complete loss of sensation
  • seizures
  • difficulty reading and writing
  • poor cognitive abilities

On Camp Lejeune, the source of PFAS is the employment of AFFF by military firefighters and trainees to put out jet fuel and petroleum fires. This is a very effective fire suppressant that was developed by the U.S. Navy along with the 3M company in the early 1960s. If you were stationed at Camp Lejeune when PFAS were present, either alone or with your family, and came to struggle with neurological effects, please contact our law firm, which might be able to recover financial compensation for you. Similarly, if one of the family members who were stationed with you experiences neurological effects, they may also be eligible for compensation.
