    Lawyer for Camp Lejeune Bladder Cancer Lawsuit

    Lawyer for Camp Lejeune Bladder Cancer Lawsuit lawyer attorney sue compensation
    Were you exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune military base in Jacksonville, NC and developed bladder cancer as a result? Did your family member who was a former resident or worker at Camp Lejeune pass away from complications related to bladder cancer? In that case, you may be eligible for compensation under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which was passed on August 2, 2022. 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.

    The CLJA became official as part of the PACT Act (The Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act), which President Biden signed into law on August 10, 2022. As of that date, Camp Lejeune water contamination victims and their loved ones can seek compensation in the form of medical bills, disability benefits, pain and suffering, lost wages, and counseling / mental health expenses.

    What is Bladder Cancer?

    Bladder cancer typically affects older adults when the cells in the bladder grow out of control. Most cases of bladder cancer involve the urothelial cells, which line the urinary tract. Fortunately, the disease is treatable if it’s caught early. On the downside, bladder cancer has a high rate of reoccurrence, which can be physically and mentally taxing on the patient, as well as their loved ones.

    To ensure the best possible chance of recovery, please seek immediate medical attention if you start to experience:

    • Pain while urinating
    • Frequent urination, especially at night
    • Problems passing urine
    • Pain in the lower back on one side of the body
    • Bloody urine (which may appear red or brownish in color)

    This cancer can be costly to deal with as it can come back repeatedly throughout a person’s life. Bladder cancer can also spread to other parts of your body, including the liver, lungs, and lymph nodes. Once that happens, more aggressive treatments will be needed, which can lead to life-long health issues like urinary incontinence, anemia, infertility, and higher risk of infections.

    Bladder Cancer and Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune

    From 1953 to 1987, several dangerous toxins contaminated the water supply at Camp Lejeune Marine Corps base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. These chemicals were released from a variety of sources, including reckless disposal of industrial waste, leaking fuel tanks, and a local business that used tetrachloroethylene, a dry cleaning solvent. As a result, over one million residents, workers, and visitors at Camp Lejeune were exposed to high levels of benzene, vinyl chloride, trichloroethylene, and tetrachloroethylene.

    Even more disturbing is the negligence by military officials, who were repeatedly told about these hazards. Yet, they chose to hide the problem and denied assistance to those who developed bladder cancer from long-term exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.

    What are the Requirements to File a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?

    To qualify for compensation under the PACT Act, you must have lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days during the time period of August 1, 1953 to December 31, 1987. Or, you are the family member of a deceased kidney cancer patient who was at Camp Lejeune for the required amount of time. However, individuals that were dishonorably discharged and their family members are not eligible for a claim under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. To verify your eligibility and start the process of recovering your losses, contact our office at your earliest convenience.

    Can I join a Class Action Lawsuit?

    Yes, we can help you join a class action on these cases as it becomes available. That way, you can be represented in one lawsuit with other people who have been affected by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. However, you also have the choice to file an injury claim on your own, which may be more beneficial to you and your family. No matter which option you choose, all Camp Lejeune lawsuits must be filed with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. During a private consultation, one of our attorneys will discuss your legal options and help you make an informed choice.

    What is my Camp Lejeune Case Worth?

    Each bladder cancer patient has their own set of financial and emotional losses. Thus, we would have to speak with you in person to come up with a fair amount of damages to ask for. However, lawsuits involving cancer due to long-term or gross negligence are typically high value cases. Settlement values in the range of $150,000 to $750,000 are not uncommon, and some cases may be worth in excess of $1 million. Keep in mind we can only provide estimates based on previous verdicts and settlements.

    How long do I have to wait for my Settlement?

    Just like case values, there is significant variation in the amount of time to settle one of these cases. We will do our best to recover your payment in 6 to 8 months, but there are many complications that can hold up a Camp Lejeune injury claim. If your claim cannot be settled directly with the appropriate federal agency, we will proceed with a lawsuit and prepare for the possibility of going to trial. Depending on whether or not a trial is necessary, it may take two or more years before your case is settled.

    Statute of Limitations for a Bladder Cancer Camp Lejeune Lawsuit

    Keep in mind that you have a two-year window from August 10, 2022 in which to file a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit. The starting date is based on the day that the PACT Act was signed by President Biden. If you miss the filing deadline of August 10, 2024, you will most likely lose the right to sue for your physical and emotional injuries. To make sure your claim is submitted on time, call us right away and speak with one of our lawyers.
