1) Who qualifies for the Camp Lejeune lawsuit?
The law states, anyone who “resided, worked, or was otherwise exposed” to Camp Lejeune drinking water for 30 days or more between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987 may qualify.
2) How long will the Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit be settled?
The statute of limitations extends two years from the date the Camp Lejeune Justice Act (CLJA) was signed into law. That means no further toxic water claims will be accepted after August 10, 2024. Victims and their families will want to keep this deadline in mind, but it’s actually best to act as soon as possible to file a Water Contamination Lawsuit.
3) What caused the Camp Lejeune contamination?
Water from the Tarawa Terrace water treatment plant was primarily contaminated by PCE (perchloroethylene or tetrachloroethylene). The source of the contamination was traced to the waste disposal practices at ABC One-Hour Cleaners, a dry cleaning shop located off base.
4) What diseases were caused by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune?
Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes. Bladder, kidney and liver cancer as well as birth defects.
5) How much will Camp Lejeune victims get?
At this time, there is no guaranteed compensation amount, but you could receive up to $3,000 a month for medical expenses. For very severe disabilities, you may be eligible for a Special Monthly Compensation as well.
