Accepting Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Claims
Did you serve, work or live at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987? During this time, military members, civilian employees and families were exposed to contaminated drinking water at the United States Marine Corps base.
You could be eligible to receive compensation for the impact of exposure to hazardous chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects and other health concerns. Damages can be recovered if you:
- Stationed 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
The Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxins Act or PACT Act allows military service members affected by toxic exposure to seek restitution from the United States government. This includes the Camp Lejeune Act of 2022.
Our Long Island personal injury law firm advocates for military veterans and their families to get the compensation and justice they deserve. To find out if you qualify to pursue a claim, speak with one of our toxic water lawyers today.
