If you, a friend, or a family member developed cancer or serious illness after living or working at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 then you may be eligible for financial compensation. The bipartisan bill known as Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 (the “Act”) is close to the finish line to become law (as of July 21, 2022). The Act would allow veterans and individuals, or those exposed in-utero, to file a claim in U.S. federal court for damages suffered as a result of living or working at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987. The veteran or individual would have had to have lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 cumulative days between August 1, 1953 to December 31, 1987.
The water contamination at Camp Lejeune may have caused the following types of medical conditions: brain cancer, spinal cord cancer, kidney cancer, fatty liver disease a/k/a hepatic steatosis, multiple myeloma, kidney cancer, non-hodgkin’s lymphoma, liver cancer, bladder cancer, kidney disease, breast cancer, rectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, esophageal cancer, scleroderma, leukemia, lung cancer, cardiac birth defects, miscarriage, infertility, and renal toxicity.
