The Camp Lejeune Justice Act was introduced by Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina in 2021 to provide financial compensation for everyone injured by drinking contaminated water at the military base between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987. It was signed into law on August 11, 2022, by President Joe Biden, and now, veterans, family members, and civilians who lived at Camp Lejeune can file a claim with the U.S. government to obtain the compensation they deserve for the illnesses they developed as a result of toxic water exposure at the military base. Until now, over 75,000 claims have been filed under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act.
The purpose of this bill is to "establish a cause of action for those harmed by exposure to water at Camp Lejeune." To allow everyone injured by toxic water at the military base to receive the compensation they are entitled to, the new law prohibits the government from asserting immunity against lawsuits filed by Camp Lejeune water contamination victims.
Whether you are a veteran or a family member of one who lived at Camp Lejeune while the drinking water was contaminated and now struggle with a disease, you might be eligible to file a claim.
