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. Although adverse neurological effects can occur from multiple causes, exposure to trichloroethylene has been recently linked to severe neurodegenerative diseases. 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.

Exposure to TCE can result in severe 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

In May 2023, a study published in JAMA Neurology compared marines who served at Camp Lejeune, whose drinking water contained high levels of trichloroethylene (TCE), with their counterparts at Camp Pendleton (CA), whose drinking water wasn’t contaminated. Researchers found that Camp Lejeune veterans who served for at least 3 months on the base from 1975 – 1985 had a 70% higher risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.
