Did You Serve, Work or Live at Camp Lejeune?
Military members, civilian employees and families who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987 may be eligible to receive compensation.
The U.S. government passed the Camp Lejeune Act of 2022, which allows affected individuals to recover damages from the impact of exposure to contaminated water at the Marine Corps Base. Our attorneys can help secure the money you deserve.
You May Be Entitled to Significant Compensation
Under the Camp Lejeune Act of 2022, you can be awarded damages if you:
- Worked for at least 30 days during this time period
- Did not receive a dishonorable discharge from military service
- Have a diagnosis of one or more of the conditions linked to contamination
If your loved one was affected but has since passed away, you may still be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf. Work with our experienced attorneys to pursue a claim.
