Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit
Hope After Nearly 70 Years: The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022
An extraordinary piece of first-time legislation, The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 brings new hope to servicemembers, facility workers, and their families who have long been denied benefits or other compensation for illnesses stemming from Camp Lejeune’s contaminated water.
Supported by both political parties (and the VA), the measure passed the House on May 3, 2022. Where other bills have failed, this measure takes the position that water contamination at Camp Lejeune was a “cost of war.”1
“When we send our men and women overseas, we make a promise to care for them when they come home. We failed our veterans when they were exposed to toxic drinking water at Camp Lejeune, and it is up to us to make it right.” – Congressman Greg Murphy (R-NC)
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 only allows a two-year window for civil claims to be properly filed, so be sure to contact us now to start your case. Don’t miss your chance for compensation.
Our Lawyers Charge Nothing Unless You Win.
Remember, you will only be able to file a lawsuit for two years.
Is This a Claim for VA Benefits?
This is not a claim for benefits through the VA. These lawsuits are an additional, and separate, avenue for Veterans to obtain additional compensation related to serious health problems linked to Camp Lejeune’s contaminated drinking water. The success of your potential case will likely not be determined by the status of your VA benefits. This means that you can pursue a lawsuit even if you were previously denied VA benefits, are currently or previously receiving VA benefits, or if you need help with a prior or pending application for VA benefits.
While the Camp Lejeune Justice Act is designed to help streamline related VA benefits, the only way to access compensation for the harm and suffering associated with contaminated water at the base is to file a lawsuit within the two year window established by the law. Even though you have two years to file, your attorney needs time to prepare your case, so it is important that you sign up now.
