    What is the Value of my Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?

    What is the Value of my Camp Lejeune Lawsuit lawyer attorney sue compensation liability hazard
    Did you or a loved one develop a serious health condition due to exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune during the years of 1953 to 1987? If so, you may have grounds for a lawsuit against the U.S. government under the terms of the PACT Act.

    On August 2, 2022, Congress passed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act to allow those who developed an illness or lost a family member due to water contamination at Camp Lejeune to pursue a claim for monetary damages. The law became official as part of The Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act on August 10, 2022. As of that date, injury victims and surviving family members can seek compensation if they were injured by or developed an illness that’s been linked to the contaminated water supply at Camp Lejeune military base in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

    You most likely have many questions regarding the lawsuit process, including the amount you could receive if your lawsuit is successful. Our attorneys can advise you in this area and help you recover the payment you’re entitled to. Please give us a call at our office and schedule a free consultation.

    What Caused the Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune?

    For over three decades, the water supply at Camp Lejeune was contaminated by the following industrial chemicals: benzene, vinyl chloride, trichloroethylene (TCE) and tetrachloroethylene (PCE / PERC). This was no secret to U.S. military leaders, but they did nothing to resolve the problem and continually denied claims of injuries and death. As a result, countless residents, workers, and visitors at Camp Lejeune developed or passed away from one of these health complications:

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

    With the signing of the PACT Act by President Biden, justice can finally be achieved for those who went without the care and assistance they deserved. If you are one of these victims who suffered due to the government’s negligence, contact us right away to learn about your legal options.

    Your Legal Rights under the PACT Act

    The Camp Lejeune Justice Act has specific requirements you will need to meet in order to be eligible for a lawsuit. These include:

    • You (or a family member you’re suing on behalf of) must have lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987.
    • You were injured by, or your loved one passed away from one of the medical conditions associated with exposure to contaminated water at the base.
    • You or the decedent did not receive a dishonorable discharge from the U.S. military.

    Aside from these requirements, there are many rules pertaining to the filing process for these claims. To ensure that your claim is filed properly, contact our office and speak to a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit attorney.

    What is the Value of my Camp Lejeune Case?

    Each injury or wrongful death case is different, with its own set of unique factors. Thus, it’s impossible to quote an amount that you could recover from a Camp Lejeune claim without speaking with you directly. But if we had to make some educated guesses, we can look at past settlements for lawsuits involving similar circumstances.

    Based on that information, we know that cases involving aggressive forms of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and many other illnesses associated with toxic chemicals typically bring in large settlements. These conditions, after all, require long-term, expensive medical treatments. They can also compromise your ability to perform your job duties or engage in basic tasks. Depending on the severity of your illness, a Camp Lejeune injury claim may be worth around $150,000 to $300,000 and above. The value of a case may even exceed $1 million for the most serious illnesses / complications.

    Monetary Damages from a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit

    The damages you can recover through a lawsuit consist of financial and emotional losses that you’ve incurred as a result of being exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. These may include:

    • Medical bills
    • Disability payments
    • Lost income
    • Pain and suffering
    • Cost of counseling / mental health services
    • Attorney’s fees

    These damages, by the way, apply to individuals that have suffered from, or are currently suffering from a qualifying health condition. Certain victims, on the other hand, lost a family member to an illness from water contamination at Camp Lejeune. These claimants may be able to recover:

    • Funeral / burial expenses
    • Medical expenses
    • Loss of expected income
    • Pain and suffering
    • Survivor benefits (from the VA)
    • Loss of consortium
    • Legal fees

    As you can see, there are many different types of compensation that make up your settlement award. At Kenmore Law Group, our goal is to recover the maximum amount you are due for each of these damages. To get started on a Camp Lejeune lawsuit and receive the funds you deserve, please contact us as soon as possible.

    How long does it take to Settle one of these Cases?

    Unfortunately, there’s no way to guarantee how soon we can settle your case. But it’s always our mission to recover a client’s payment as soon as possible, which is generally within 6 to 8 months of filing an injury claim. But there may be complications in your case that will take more time to resolve. If these issues are particularly complex and a trial is required, recovering your damages can take up to several years. To avoid any unnecessary delays in your case, it’s essential to work with a law firm experienced in complex personal injury, mass torts, and class action lawsuits. We can offer that here at Kenmore, so please take some to speak with one of our attorneys.

    How long do I have to File a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?

    You have until August 10, 2024 to file a Camp Lejeune lawsuit, whether you are an injured victim or a surviving family member. This means you have two years from August 10, 2022, the signing date of the PACT Act, to seek compensation from the federal government. Please don’t wait to take action on a claim, as the statute of limitations on a lawsuit is rarely extended. If you don’t file your lawsuit by the two-year deadline, it will be very difficult to obtain compensation for your financial and emotional losses.
