What You Need to Know About Camp Lejeune Lawsuits

Since its founding in 1942, Camp Lejeune has been a temporary or permanent home for thousands of military service members and their families. In addition to service members, Camp Lejeune has been a home or workplace for thousands more civil service employees and contractors. 

In order to supply these Marines and civilians with potable water, Camp Lejeune had its own public water system. In the 1980s, environmental testing at Camp Lejeune led to the discovery that the water supply going to Camp Lejeune residents and employees was contaminated with extremely dangerous chemicals.

Although the contaminated wells were shut down, there was not much action in terms of healthcare and concern for those who had been affected. In 2008, President Bush signed a bill that required the Navy to further investigate the injuries and deaths that resulted from contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, and in 2016 roughly 800 lawsuits were filed. Those cases were dismissed, and in 2021, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act was introduced to the House of Representatives. 

That bill was officially passed through Congress on August 2, 2022, and was signed into law by President Biden on Wednesday, August 10, 2022. Victims will have two years from the signing of the bill to file a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit. 

With the statute of limitations in place, there’s no time to wait. If you or a loved one were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, get in touch with our team today and get started on your free case review.

Camp Lejeune Lawsuit FAQs

Is There a Statute of Limitations for Camp Lejeune Lawsuits? 

Individuals will have two years from the date the bill is signed by President Biden to file a lawsuit. That means the statute of limitations will likely run out in August 2024. That’s why if you believe you have a case, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.

Water contamination at Camp Lejeune was caused by spills or leaks from underground storage tanks, waste disposal sites, businesses, and more.

Because of this, dangerous chemicals called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) were found in the water serving the base housing and a variety of other buildings on base.

These VOCs included:

  • Dry cleaning solvents
  • Degreasers
  • And other hazardous chemicals

Since we’re still in the early stages of filing cases, it is hard to estimate what the typical settlement amount for a Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit would be.

The settlement amount for each individual case will differ based upon the injuries suffered, conditions diagnosed, amount of time spent at the base, and other factors.

Lawsuit settlements would also contain damages incurred, which can include medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional damages, and more.

Depending on injuries and evidence, individual settlement amounts for exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune could be significant.

No, there is currently not a Camp Lejeune Class Action Lawsuit.

With the passing of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, lawsuits will be filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. As the number of lawsuits filed is expected to be significant, the cases will eventually likely be consolidated into an MDL class action lawsuit.

The first step is to fill out our form or give us a call to see if you may qualify. 

If you qualify, the next step is to sign up with one of our participating law firms, and a case review specialist will contact you for more information.
