    Average Case Value of Camp Lejeune Miscarriage – Loss of Pregnancy Lawsuit

    Average Case Value of Camp Lejeune Miscarriage - Loss of Pregnancy Lawsuit lawyer attorney sue compensation
    You may have heard about the recent passing of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act as part of PACT Act, or The Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act. Under this legislation, those who suffered a serious health condition, such as miscarriage or pregnancy loss, from exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, have the right to sue the federal government for monetary compensation. Damages that can be recovered include medical bills, lost income, VA disability benefits, pain and suffering, and counseling / mental health expenses.

    Lately, we’ve been hearing from eligible claimants who have many questions about the lawsuit process, including “What is the average value of a Camp Lejeune miscarriage – loss of pregnancy lawsuit?”

    Frankly, each injury case has its own set of variables that are unique to that victim’s physical and emotional injuries. However, we can examine past verdicts and settlements for similar lawsuits to get an idea of what these cases are worth. But these are estimates at best, so the information we provide should only be used for general purposes. To get an approximate value of your own Camp Lejeune lawsuit, please schedule a free consultation.

    About Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss

    A miscarriage is a medical condition that refers to the loss of a fetus or embryo during the first 20 weeks of pregnancy, typically during the first trimester. Beyond that point, the loss of an unborn baby is described as pregnancy loss, though the two terms are often used interchangeably.

    While pregnancy loss, especially during the first 3 months, is fairly common, the physical and mental effects are often devastating for the patient and their loved ones. Fortunately, immediate medical treatment can help prevent long-term complications in most women. However, patients can end up with health issues such as infertility and damage to the reproductive organs, particularly when they have more than one miscarriage. Aside from bodily injuries, the expectant mother may struggle with mental health issues such as PTSD and depression.

    Sadly, many of the women that were stationed at, worked at, or visited Camp Lejeune during the years of 1953 to 1987 had one or more spontaneous abortions due to the contaminants that were present in the water supply.

    Toxic Chemicals in the Water at Camp Lejeune

    During the period of contamination, over one million service members, contactors, and civilians at Camp Lejeune military base in Jacksonville, North Carolina were exposed to high level of the following:

    • Trichloroethylene (TCE)
    • Tetrachloroethylene (PCE or PERC)
    • Vinyl Chloride
    • Benzene

    It was known to military leadership that these chemicals came from a variety of sources. Benzene, for example, was leaked into the groundwater from defective fuel tanks. Other chemicals like PCE and PERC came from a local dry cleaner, and unsafe disposal of industrial waste contributed to the problem as well. By not taking steps to fix these issues, the U.S. military allowed people to be harmed or pass away from exposure to these dangerous chemicals.

    The PACT Act, which was signed into law on August 10, 2022, allows Camp Lejeune water contamination victims to seek monetary damages from the federal government. In the next section, we will go into more detail regarding the compensation you can recover, including possible settlement values for a Camp Lejeune miscarriage – pregnancy loss injury claim.

    Camp Lejeune Miscarriage Lawsuit Case Values

    As the Camp Lejeune Justice Act was passed so recently, it’s hard to say what these cases will bring in on average. But if we look at previous loss of pregnancy lawsuits involving gross negligence, it’s fair to say that these are high value cases. The highest values will generally involve cases of severe injury and long-term complications, such as multiple miscarriages, infertility, and PTSD. Additionally, we can’t ignore the fact that a baby’s life was lost, and that such a tragedy could have been prevented by military leadership.

    As a result, we believe that a good number of these claims are worth anywhere from $250,000 to $700,000. Depending on the degree of financial and emotional losses, a Camp Lejeune loss of pregnancy case may be worth $1 million or more. However, it’s impossible to say what your own claiim is worth without learning about the details of your case. If you’re interested in finding out what you could receive from a successful lawsuit, contact our office and speak with one of our attorneys.

    Your Right to Sue under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act

    The Camp Lejeune Justice Act allows anyone who lived or worked at the base from August 1, 1953, to December 31, 1987, for at least 30 days, exposed to the contaminated water and suffered injuries, to file a claim against the U.S. government. However, dishonorably discharged individuals and their family members will most likely be ineligible for a Camp Lejeune personal injury or wrongful death claim.

    As the defendant in this case is the U.S. government, you will need to file your lawsuit with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. These cases are different than a standard civil lawsuit that you would file against an individual or company, so it’s in your best interest to consult an experienced attorney.

    How long does it take to Settle these Cases?

    Understandably, it’s essential to receive your settlement as soon as possible in order to achieve some sense of justice for the harm you’ve suffered. With the level of public outrage over the military’s negligence, we believe that the majority of payments will be recovered within 6 to 8 months. However, even minor complications can add to a case timeline, especially when a government agency is involved. In that case, your claim may take anywhere from 12 to 18 months to resolve. If a settlement cannot be negotiated and a lawsuit must be filed, the recovery process may take two years or longer.

    Is there a Time Limit to File a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?

    You have until August 10, 2024 to file a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit. This date gives you a two-year window from the signing date of the PACT Act (August 10, 2022). It does not matter how long ago you had your miscarriage or pregnancy loss, by the way. If you were at Camp Lejeune during the contamination period for at least 30 days and lost your baby from exposure to contaminated water, you are entitled to compensation from the federal government.

    Please call our office right away to get started on a miscarriage – pregnancy loss injury claim. If you miss the 2-year window to file your lawsuit, you may permanently lose the right to take legal action.
