Have You or A Loved One Been Negatively Impacted by The Laurel Bay Environmental Contamination?

The Marine Corps Air Station in Beaufort has confirmed that a study is underway linking the environmental contamination of benzene as "an exposure pathway for potential health hazards" in the Laurel Bay housing area, other areas of MCAS Beaufort and at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. Evidence suggests that the contamination has been present for many years and the appropriate measures were not taken to provide the necessary precautions and information to those families living within these areas.

It appears that this contamination was caused by underground oil and gas tanks, that leaked toxins into the ground and possibly in the water supply.

Instances include exposure to toxins by pregnant women, affecting the children after birth, and others from direct exposure.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or potential terminal illness due to the potential contamination at Laurel Bay, please contact the McDougall LawFirm, LLC. in Beaufort, as soon as possible to discuss what legal rights you have in this matter.

Terminal Illnesses Caused by Laurel Bay Contamination

Evidence suggests that families who were stationed and living at Laurel Bay housing, Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island and MCAS Beaufort were exposed to certain health problems that were caused by aging oil tanks buried in the ground near these houses. These tanks leaked benzene, a known carcinogen, into the soil and contaminated the homes and/or local water supply.

Civilian and military families alike, have developed life-threatening illnesses. Independent investigations are under way to obtain conclusive findings linking the environmental exposure to these health issues. It remains unclear as to how many people were exposed to the benzene and the life altering health risks associated with this exposure.

The following illnesses have been linked to the benzene or other environmental exposure:

  • Birth defects
  • Developmental defects for children
  • Leukemia
  • Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
  • Other forms of cancer
  • Any pediatric cancer
  • Other life-changing health conditions
