Camp Lejeune

In the US Congress, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 is currently being debated. Due to harmful chemicals at Camp Lejeune, an estimated 900,000 veterans, family members, and neighbouring residents may have been exposed to dangerous drinking water. A number of health issues are linked to the water poisoning, which has been linked to industrial spills, subterranean storage tanks, and an off-base dry cleaner.

 

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 was signed into law by President Joe Biden, it finally opens the door to legal claims for anyone damaged by the four decades of tainted drinking water on the Marine Corps post in North Carolina and file a camp lejeune water contamination lawsuit.

Who can file a Camp Lejeune Cancer lawsuit?

If you served in North Carolina at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune or Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River, you might have come into contact with toxins in the water supply there. The development of specific disorders later in life has been linked to exposure to these toxins during military service, according to scientific and medical evidence. You may be eligible for disability settlement if you’ve served in a qualified capacity at Camp Lejeune and have a current diagnosis of one of the following diseases.

As a result of the Act, people who came into contact with contaminated water at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987, including veterans who had previously been turned down by the VA, are now eligible to sue in federal court for the damages they have sustained.

Am I eligible to be compensated from VA

Individuals exposed to and damaged by the contaminated water (including unborn children) will have an avenue to submit a claim against the U.S. Government and perhaps receive monetary settlement, pending enactment of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022. A claim may be made if a person served, resided, and/or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between August 1953 and December 1987 and then had one of the following injuries:

  • Anaemia aplastic
  • Cancer caused by birth defects, including multiple myeloma, non-lymphoma, Hodgkin’s bladder, breast, esophageal, kidney, leukaemia, liver, and lung.
  • Infertility in women and miscarriage
  • Disorders of Myelogenesis
  • Effects on Neurobehavioral
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Kidney Toxicology

What proof will I need to claim settlement from the VA against the camp lejeune water lawsuit?

You can claim settlement by offering evidence to support your VA disability claim, such as:

  • VA medical records and hospital records pertaining to the ailments or injuries you claim to have had or that demonstrate the worsening of your listed disabilities
  • Private medical records and hospital reports that support your alleged illnesses or injuries or that demonstrate the progression of your handicap
  • If you have any comments from family members, friends, church members, law enforcement officers, or people you served with that can provide more information about your alleged condition, how and when it occurred, or how it worsened, please do so.

Depending on the kind of claim you submit, you can either compile proof on your own or enlist our assistance.

Additional Claims Will Be Accepted

Although most of the polluted wells in the Camp Lejeune area were sealed off by 1985, some people continue to experience long-term health consequences from the chemicals present in the water resulting in filing a camp lejeune toxic water lawsuit.

 

Veterans whose exposure to the contaminated water had led to health issues were granted more than $2 billion in disability benefits by the federal government in 2017.

 

The VA has long provided afflicted families with disability benefits, but the majority of petitions are turned down for a variety of reasons. Many veterans still think the system needs fixing, and they are supportive of the proposed legislation.
