Everything You Need to Know About Camp Lejeune Lawsuits
Did you live at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune from 1953-1987, for 30 days or more? Have you developed a major illness such as cancer since then?
According to government officials, “you may have had contact with contaminants in the drinking water there.” This means that there was toxic water discovered at Camp Lejeune, and you may have been exposed to it.
If you have been diagnosed with any of these medical conditions, you may be entitled to compensation:
- Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Liver cancer
- Multiple myeloma
- Non-Hodgkins lymphoma
- Parkinson’s disease
Who May Be Eligible for Compensation?
The criteria that must be met for this legal case includes:
- US Veterans and their family members that may have been exposed to contaminated drinking water while living at Camp Lejeune from 1953-1987 for at least 30 days
- Have been diagnosed with any of the serious medical conditions listed above
If you or a family member meet this criteria, then you may be eligible for and could qualify to join the legal fight for compensation.
Camp Lejeune Justice Act and Your VA Benefits
Senator Thom Tillis (NC) introduced the Camp Lejuene Justice Act in March of 2021. It aims to help victims of water contamination. The bill has been passed by the House and moves to the Senate for a vote next.
Some Veterans and their families may have been denied claims by the VA, but this new law may allow them compensation. You are still entitled to your VA benefits if you report your injuries and file a claim in a legal case.
If you meet all of the criteria, you can take a 2 minute questionnaire. Based on your answers, you may be contacted by a law firm that is interested in working with you to help file a claim and get a free case assessment.
