Filing Camp Lejeune Claims for Veterans & Their Families

Call (800) 315-3806 to See If You're Owed Compensation for Exposure to Toxic Chemicals

If for at least 30 days you were on active duty at Camp Lejeune, or if you are a spouse or child of a service member and lived with them at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days—between 1953 and 1987—you may be eligible for healthcare benefits, access to better medical treatment, and financial compensation. In recent years, studies have uncovered appallingly high amounts of toxic chemical exposure at Camp Lejeune that has been linked to a number of cancers and other serious health issues. More than 900,000 personnel and family members may have experienced this toxic exposure. If you think you may be one of those affected, talk to a lawyer about your legal options.

At Levy Konigsberg, we've recovered over $3 billion for clients. We may be able to help you get the medical treatment and financial compensation you need. Call (800) 315-3806 or contact us online to schedule a FREE consultation.

A Presumption of Toxic Exposure

In 2017, Congress established that there would be a presumption of exposure for those present at Camp Lejeune within the specified timeframe of 1953 to 1987. This means that there's no need to directly prove that you were exposed to toxic chemicals; if you can prove you were onsite between 1953 and 1987, this will count as proof of toxic exposure.

At Tarawa Terrace military housing and other sites at Camp Lejeune, people were exposed to harmful chemicals from degreasers, industrial waste, radioactive chemicals, and more. In fact, at least 70 hazardous chemicals have been identified at the site, exposing people to levels of toxic agents 200 to 3,400 times beyond what is deemed safe! Nearly one million people were exposed, many of whom have already dealt with serious, even fatal health issues.

Cancers & Other Health Risks Linked to This Toxic Exposure

The harmful chemical agents identified have been known to cause organ damage, cancer, and other deadly health risks and conditions. If you were exposed within the timeframe specified, and you've been diagnosed with cancer or another serious disease, then you may be eligible to file a claim.

A qualifying condition includes but is not limited to:

  • Adult leukemia
  • Aplastic anemia
  • Bladder cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
  • Parkinson's disease

In far too many cases, people who truly have the above conditions have been misdiagnosed with something less pernicious. If you have not been diagnosed with the above conditions, but were exposed to toxic agents at Camp Lejeune, then you may want to consider getting a second opinion from a different medical professional. Not only do you want to ensure you have the correct diagnosis, but if you also need additional medical care, you will want to take advantage of the healthcare access and funds available to you.

Filing Injury Fund & VA Claims

If you have a serious health condition after toxic chemical exposure at Camp Lejeune, then you may be able to file an injury fund claim as well as a VA claim in order to get access to medical treatment and monetary damages for your physical and emotional suffering.

The following parties can file a claim for toxic exposure at Camp Lejeune:

  • Veterans
  • Reservists
  • Guardsmen
  • Spouses
  • Children

By pursuing the compensation you're owed, not only can you get the advanced medical care you need, but you can also hold the responsible parties accountable.

If you are veteran who was not dishonorably discharged, you will only need military records of being stationed at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days and your medical records. If you are a spouse or child of a veteran, you will need those military records as well as a marriage license, birth certificate, or adoption papers; medical records proving an applicable diagnosis; and documentation such as utility bills or tax forms to prove your residence at Camp Lejeune or MCAS New River.
