Many soldiers, family members, and contractors at Camp Lejeune were exposed to harmful contaminants at the base between 1953 and 1987, resulting in serious illness. Recently, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 was passed, allowing victims to seek compensation since the US military knew about the contaminated water and did not address it. The government has since accepted responsibility for the contamination, but the obstacles to obtain compensation will be difficult. Hiring Lamar Law Office to represent you in the Camp Lejeune water contamination case allows you to focus on your recovery and health, rather than battling the government for the compensation you deserve.
Contact our Camp Lejeune lawyers today for a free consultation to determine if you are eligible for compensation. We will help you determine the exposure time frame, illness eligibility, and gather the proof you need to proceed with a claim. Many victims of the water contamination at Camp Lejeune that are already receiving disability benefits can qualify for additional VA benefits for the losses and illness caused by the contamination exposure.
