Camp Lejeune Lawsuit

Camp Lejeune

Although it is believed that up to one million military personnel and their family members were affected by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, most victims have seen no compensation or benefits from the U.S. government. Many lawsuits were dismissed or delayed past the statute of limitations, preventing victims from claiming damages for their suffering. The passage of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 changes that, allowing those affected to file suit, even if they previously filed a lawsuit or received benefits from Veterans Affairs.
