The veterans benefits law firm Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, PC applauds the passage of the Janey Ensminger Act and urge others injured by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune to contact them with any questions.

We urge those who have served at Camp Lejeune to step forward and contact our offices to find out how they can receive compensation for their injuries.

Veterans benefits lawyer David Russotto of Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, PC announces his support of President Obama’s recent signing of the Janey Ensminger Act (H.R. 1742).

Mr. Russotto, a veteran of The Gulf War era and former Navy JAG Corp attorney, has been following this bill with interest. The Janey Ensminger Act provides disability compensation to thousands of sick Marine veterans and their families who were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Janey Ensminger’s father, Jerry Ensminger, has been working to call attention to the contaminated water for decades, after the death of his daughter from leukemia at the age of nine. Hundreds of thousands were exposed to this contaminated water, poisoned by chemicals such as trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, benzene and vinyl chloride.

The law provides for Marines and their families who lived at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between 1957 and 1987 and have developed the following illnesses: esophageal cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, leukemia, multiple myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes, renal toxicity, hepatic steatosis, female infertility, miscarriage, scleroderma, neurobehavioral effects and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The law is expected to affect up 750,000 Marines, veterans and their families.

Attorney Russotto stated, “We are grateful justice has been served for the Ensminger family and the thousands of others affected by this toxic water. We urge those who have served at Camp Lejeune to step forward and contact our offices to find out how they can receive compensation for their disabilities.”
