Earlier this year, Congress passed the PACT Act, which included the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. These acts paved the way for countless people who were harmed by the toxic water at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina to receive benefits and compensation for serious health problems they suffered as a result of being exposed to the contaminated water on the U.S. Marine Corps base.
If you or someone you love was harmed by Camp Lejeune’s water, we want you to know that you still have time to file a claim to get the compensation you’re owed. The U.S. military knew that Camp Lejeune’s water was potentially dangerous for many years, and servicemembers and their families were exposed to it for more than 30 years between 1953 and 1987.
With Congress approving the PACT Act, the path to compensation for victims has never been clearer or more straightforward than right now. The Veterans Administration website has all the info you need about Camp Lejeune water-related injuries, illnesses, and the available benefits that victims and their families can receive. While you can file for benefits on your own through the VA.gov portal, having an experienced lawyer on your side can help you expedite your claim and increase your chances of success.
