    Can I get a Cash Advance on my Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Claim?

    Can I get a Cash Advance on my Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Claim lawyer law firm attorney sue compensation liability

    On August 10, 2022, President Biden signed into law The Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act, or PACT Act. A major part of this legislation is the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which permits those who were harmed by or lost a family member to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune to sue the U.S. government for monetary damages. These damages will vary from person to person, but they generally include medical expenses, lost wages, disability payments, pain and suffering, and cost of mental health services.

    For more than 30 years, the groundwater at Camp Lejeune military base in Jacksonville, North Carolina was contaminated by a host of toxic chemicals. As a result, over one million residents and workers were exposed to high levels of trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCE or PERC), vinyl chloride, and benzene. Though military officials knew what was going on, they did nothing to resolve these hazards and protect the service members and civilians that were in their care. The passing of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act means that the military’s negligence will no longer be tolerated.

    Perhaps you are one of the many victims who are eligible for compensation through the Camp Lejeune recovery process. But you are struggling financially, which is sadly common for those who are diagnosed with a serious medical condition from exposure to contaminated water. In that case, it can be difficult to wait for a settlement, which may have you asking, “Is there a way I can get an advance on my Camp Lejeune case?”

    Can my Lawyer offer me an Advance on my Case?

    We’ve been getting this question a lot lately from Camp Lejeune claimants and their family members, and we certainly understand why. After all, if you’re going to file a water contamination lawsuit, why not kill two birds with one stone by asking your lawyer for a pre-settlement advance?

    As for whether or not your lawyer is allowed to do this, yes, a lawyer practicing in the state of California can offer cash advances to their clients before the cases have settled. This is permitted under the California State Bar’s Rules of Professional Conduct, which states that a lawyer can “after the lawyer is retained by the client, agree to lend money to the client based on the client’s written promise to repay the loan.”

    Our law firm is happy to extend Camp Lejeune lawsuit loans to all eligible claimants. To learn more about our Camp Lejeune cash advance program, please schedule a free case review with one of our attorneys.

    Am I Eligible for a Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit?

    Aside from asking “Can I get a loan on my Camp Lejeune case,” people have been calling to ask about the eligibility requirements for a water contamination lawsuit. 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. You do not have to be former military to file a claim, but if you are, you must not have received a dishonorable discharge status. These individuals, as well as their family members, are ineligible to claim damages under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. In addition, you must have suffered from, or lost a loved one to an illness associated with water contamination at Camp Lejeune according to the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs. These health conditions include:

    • Aplastic anemia (and related syndromes)
    • Bladder cancer
    • Breast cancer
    • Esophageal cancer
    • Female infertility
    • Hepatic steatosis
    • Kidney cancer
    • Leukemia
    • Liver cancer
    • Lung cancer
    • Miscarriage
    • Multiple myeloma
    • Myelodysplastic syndromes
    • Neurobehavioral effects
    • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • Renal toxicity
    • Scleroderma

    How much of an Advance can I get on a Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Case?

    How much of a loan you can get on a Camp Lejeune water contamination case depends on various factors that are unique to your own situation. These factors include your case value, since we have to determine your loan amount based on what you can recover from your lawsuit. For an accurate answer to this question, please call our office and schedule a free consultation at your earliest convenience. Along with advising you on the terms of our Camp Lejeune lawsuit loans, we can answer any other questions you have regarding your rights and legal options.

    Why is my Lawyer not giving me a Loan against my Camp Lejeune Case?

    If you’ve retained a lawyer already for your Camp Lejeune case, you’ve probably asked them for a cash advance to help you out until your claim is settled. So why are they refusing to advance you the money? Most likely, they believe that lending money to a client is a conflict of interest. In theory, a lawyer may feel pressured to settle a case as soon as possible, even if the offer’s much lower that what the client deserves.

    While we understand where these attorneys are coming from, we are confident in our ability to win your case and bring you the compensation you deserve. Here at Kenmore, we do not see personal injury lawsuits as a race to the finish line. Our job is to bring you maximum payment for your injuries, no matter how long it takes.

    In the meantime, you should not be denied the basic necessities of life, which is why we are happy to give you a loan against your Camp Lejeune case.

    Can I get a Camp Lejeune Cash Advance from a Lawsuit Funding Company?

    This is a possibility if your law firm is refusing you offer you an early settlement loan. Essentially, lawsuit funding companies lend money to borrowers with an active lawsuit. The repayments start once you receive your settlement, which is helpful when you are facing financial hardship. But here’s the catch: the interest rates on these lawsuits are very expensive. Typically, they run around 27 to 60% on a yearly basis, which makes them no better than payday loans.

    Our lawyers do not want to see you worse off than you were before your settlement, especially when you’re dealing with a serious medical condition. To explore the option of retaining our law firm and receiving a cash advance on your Camp Lejeune claim, contact our office without delay.
