Camp Lejeune neurological effects claims

Neurological effects concern the negative consequences of a factor regarding the structure and function of the nervous system. The most common neurological effects include delayed reaction time and problems with short-term memory, visual perception, attention, and color vision. Although the causes of neurological effects are numerous, exposure to trichloroethylene (TCE), a solvent formerly used for maintenance purposes on military bases, can lead to debilitating neurologic afflictions.

Exposure to the industrial solvents that leached into the drinking water at military installations like Camp Lejeune might also promote the development of adverse neurological effects. The biochemical, structural, or electrical abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord, and other nerves, which are known as neurological effects, can lead to the development of many symptoms. Some of these symptoms are the following:

  • paralysis
  • muscle weakness
  • poor coordination
  • loss of sensation
  • seizures
  • confusion
  • severe pain
  • altered consciousness

In a recent study, researchers compared Camp Lejeune Marines who served on the base between 1975 and 1985, when TCE was known to have contaminated the base’s drinking water, to marines who served at Camp Pendleton in California, where the drinking water didn’t contain the substance. Although the average length of service of Camp Lejeune veterans in the study was 3 months, they had a 70% greater risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.
