These cases are deeply personal for Karl. He understands the deep sacrifices military families make, and won’t back down from a fight when they are mistreated or denied the compensation they deserve.
From 1953 to 1987, more than one million people who lived, worked, or served at Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River were exposed to contaminated water laced with toxic chemicals and volatile organic compounds like benzene, vinyl chloride, trichloroethylene, and tetrachloroethylene.
For many of those veterans, military contractors, and military family members, that toxic exposure directly contributed to a significantly higher risk of both short and long-term health issues—including cancer, birth defects and miscarriage, Parkinson’s disease, and much more.
If you or a loved one were affected, until recently there wasn’t much you could do about it.
