Why Are Veterans and Others Suing the U.S. Government Over Camp Lejeune?

Opened in 1942 near North Carolina’s Atlantic Coast, U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune can house far more than 100,000 active-duty service members, family members, and civilian employees.

In 1982, authorities identified hazardous compounds in the water supply at Camp Lejeune. The result of unsafe waste disposal practices at a nearby dry-cleaning business, the contamination affected an unknown number of Camp Lejeune residents.


Among the toxic contaminants found in Camp Lejeune’s water were:

  • Trichloroethylene (TCE)
  • Perchloroethylene (PCE)
  • Benzene

These chemicals are associated with severe health conditions, including multiple forms of cancer. If you or a loved one became sick after working or living at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987, our Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group team wants to hear from you.

Who Is Eligible for a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?

As of August 10, 2022, you may be eligible to sue for damages related to Camp Lejeune if:

  • You or a loved one were potentially exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.
  • You were personally exposed to contaminated water, have lost a loved one because of exposure, or have a loved one who cannot take legal action on their behalf.
  • The exposure occurred between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987.

If you believe you can be eligible to file a claim or lawsuit, consider hiring a Camp Lejeune lawyer from Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group to fight for the money you deserve.

That said, if you read this after August 10, you should still speak with our team. Your case can be an exception to the filing deadline, or the deadline may have changed by the time you speak with us.

Recoverable Damages for Those Affected by Toxic Water at Camp Lejeune

Suffering an illness like cancer or Parkinson’s disease is difficult to describe. Our job as attorneys, though, is to evaluate every harm our clients have suffered. When handling Camp Lejeune contamination cases, we often find that clients suffer from the following:

Severe Pain and Suffering

Attorney Jennifer Gore-Cuthbert SuperLawyers 2022 Award

Merely learning that you have a severe health problem can be intensely traumatic. The day-to-day challenges of battling an illness can be even worse and may cause:

  • Emotional anguish
  • Psychological distress
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Scarring
  • Loss of body parts
  • Lost quality of life
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Our attorneys know how to calculate the financial value of pain and suffering. Let us evaluate yours (with help from a mental health professional) and pursue fair compensation for you.

Healthcare Expenses

The cost of cancer-related medical care is a massive financial burden for Americans. Whether or not you have health insurance, you may face high out-of-pocket costs for your diagnosis and treatment.

Your Camp Lejeune lawyer from our team will work with your doctors to identify your current and future medical expenses. We will include all of these expenses in your case.

Professional Damages

Those who undergo treatment for cancer or other serious illnesses may:

  • Be unable to work for a prolonged period (or even permanently)
  • Lose a significant amount of income
  • Be unable to earn promotions
  • Lost opportunities to increase their earnings (through bonuses, overtime, and other means)

Even if you can work in some capacity, you may earn less because of the limitations your illness causes.

Rehabilitation Expenses

The effects of serious illnesses may deplete you physically and psychologically. You may need rehabilitation to regain strength, and rehab services may have a significant financial cost.

Mental Health Treatment Costs

The realities of being sick can be psychologically and emotionally devastating, and you may need:

  • Counseling
  • Medications
  • Other types of treatment for your pain and suffering

We view our clients as people, and we know that an illness’ effects range beyond physical symptoms. We will ensure you receive the mental health services you need and include your care costs in your case.

A Wrongful Death 

You can seek justice for the loss of a loved one. These are serious illnesses, after all, and you and your loved ones may be suffering from:

  • The loss of the decedent’s non-economic value, which may include a spouse’s companionship
  • The loss of the decedent’s income, benefits, and other types of financial support
  • Grief, depression, and other types of pain and suffering 

You may also face the cost of the decedent’s funeral, medical bills, and other financial burdens. Our mission is that you will not pay out-of-pocket for any damages related to Camp Lejeune.

You Might Need to Fight for the Compensation You Deserve

There are many reasons to hire a lawyer to lead your Camp Lejeune claim, as it is possible that:

  • Your claim is denied, in which case we may need to file an appeal promptly.
  • You face an attempt to factor benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) into any settlement or judgment you are awarded (which would potentially reduce your payout).
  • You face other unexpected challenges that require a proper and immediate response.

Our attorneys’ background leading Camp Lejeune water contamination claims enables us to lead your case confidently. This background also allows us to respond to claim denials and other challenges your case may pose.
