    Lawyer for Camp Lejeune Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Lawsuit

    Lawyer for Camp Lejeune Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Lawsuit lawyer attorney sue compensation liability
    After more than 30 years, former residents and workers at Camp Lejeune military base were recognized for the harm and suffering they endured from being exposed to contaminated water. On August 10, 2022, they PACT Act, better known as The Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act, was officially signed into law by President Biden. Within this legislation is the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which permits those who were injured by toxic chemicals in the water at Camp Lejeune to sue the U.S. government for damages, such as medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, VA disability benefits, and cost of counseling / mental health services.

    This is an important victory for many Camp Lejeune water contamination victims who are currently diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), or lost a loved one to this devastating form of cancer. However, many people are confused about the legal process involving these lawsuits and have called us to ask, “I was at Camp Lejeune and I have non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. What are the steps I need to take?”

    Our lawyers are here to guide you every step of the way. Please schedule a free consultation to learn about your rights and legal options.

    Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma: Symptoms, Causes and Effects

    Non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or NHL, is a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is a part of your body’s immune system. The disease causes your lymphocytes (a type of white blood cells) to grow out of control and form tumors in your body. Symptoms that may indicate the presence of NHL include:

    • Swollen lymph nodes (in the armpits, neck, or groin)
    • Coughing or difficulty breathing
    • Chest pain
    • Fever
    • Feeling tired all the time
    • Swelling or pain in the abdomen
    • Night sweats
    • Unexpected weight loss

    In general, the risk for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma increases as you get older, especially if you’ve had infections such as HIV and Epstein-Barr, or you’ve had an organ transplant. Exposure to industrial chemicals like glyphosate and benzene also increase your chance of developing NHL.

    A Brief History of Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune

    During 1953 to 1987, countless service members, civilian workers, and visitors were exposed to several toxic chemicals while they were at Camp Lejeune military base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. These contaminants include:

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

    The presence of these chemicals in the water supply was no secret to military officials, who were told repeatedly about leaking fuel tanks, improper disposal of industrial waste, and other sources of contamination. But they chose to do nothing about these problems, nor did they offer assistance to victims that developed NHL from exposure to chemicals like benzene. There’s no telling how many lives were destroyed and devastated by the military’s negligence. While justice came too late, it will no longer be denied to Camp Lejeune water contamination victims and their loved ones.

    Do I Qualify for a Camp Lejeune 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 must also be diagnosed with, or lost a loved one who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after staying at Camp Lejeune during the contamination period. Finally, you must not have received a dishonorable discharge status from the military, which will make you ineligible for a Camp Lejeune contamination lawsuit.

    Our lawyers will be happy to go over the eligibility requirements with you in detail, along with any other concerns you have about the Camp Lejeune compensation process.

    Should I Join a Class Action Lawsuit or should I File my own Individual Lawsuit?

    This is really a matter of personal choice, as each legal action has their own set of benefits. Currently, there is no class action for Camp Lejeune non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma patients, but such a lawsuit is likely as the contaminated water supply at Camp Lejeune involves over 1 million people. But many victims find that it’s better to pursue a compensation claim on their own, which we can initiate immediately on your behalf. The choice is ultimately yours, but we can help you make an informed decision during a free case review.

    Where is the Lawsuit Filed?

    The court system you will need to file your lawsuit with is the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. As you can imagine, out-of-state lawsuits are complicated, and even the slightest error could can cause your lawsuit to be dismissed. Our law firm will take care of the entire filing process for you, so contact us right away to get started on a Camp Lejeune non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma injury claim.

    Now that you know where the lawsuit has to be filed, you may be wondering, “Is there a time period to file a lawsuit – join a class action lawsuit?”

    Yes, all Camp Lejeune lawsuits have a two year statute of limitations starting from August 10, 2022. If your lawsuit is not filed by August 10, 2024, it’s unlikely that you will be given more time to take legal action. To ensure that your lawsuit is filed on time, contact our office as soon as possible.

    Average Case Value for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

    Each Camp Lejeune NHL case has its own set of factors that will determine what the claimant is eligible to receive. But if we had to pick an average settlement range, we believe these cases are worth around $150,000 to $300,000. Our estimates are based on previous settlements for victims that developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma from exposure to Roundup. However, payments for Camp Lejeune cases may be higher, since there is a greater link between NHL and contaminated water at the military base than there is between NHL and Roundup. In fact, it would not surprise us to see settlements of $500,000 to over $1 million for the most severe cases.

    How long does it take to Settle these Cases?

    As a general rule, we aim to settle personal injury claim within 6 to 8 months through private negotiations with the defendant’s insurance company. But these are lawsuits involving the federal government, so the process to obtain compensation is considerably different, and there may be complications that will take time to work through. For one thing, we know that the federal agency in charge of these claims will have a huge load of cases to review, so that alone can take weeks or months. Based on all the snags we may run into, settling one of these cases could take 12 to 18 months. In the worst case scenario, 2 or more years may be needed in order to recover a fair amount of damages.
