The attorneys at Jones Ward are proud to represent our nation’s Armed Services members and their families for injuries caused by water contamination at Camp Lejeune. We also represent civilian employees and their families who ingested and/or consumed contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.
On August 10, 2022, President Joe Biden signed the Honoring our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act (PACT) of 2022. The PACT Act includes a provision known as the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 that specifically addresses those who had been stationed or who worked at Camp Lejeune and consumed contaminated water.
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act allows any individual who believes they were (1) exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between 1953 and 1987, and (2) have suffered injuries due to exposure to (or ingestion of) contaminated water to file a claim with the Office of the Judge Advocate General of the Navy’s Tort Claims Unit (TCU) in Norfolk, VA.
The attorneys at Jones Ward are very familiar with the Claims Process for processing your Camp Lejeune water contamination claims. In fact, we can file your initial claim form after just a brief conference (usually 30-60 minutes) with you to gather information about your time at Camp Lejeune, your military history, and your medical history related to the injuries discussed below.
While your claim is being processed, your attorneys will request all of the necessary medical records, military records, and other items necessary to support your claim. While the upfront time for you is minimal, you can rest assured that your legal team is spending countless hours preparing the information to support your water contamination injury or wrongful death claim.
At this time, we are accepting clients who have been diagnosed with the following injuries:
Other Kidney Diseases
Aplastic Anemia and Other Myelodysplastic Syndromes
Notably, in case you are wondering, Camp Lejeune Justice Act claims do not impact benefits or programs administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
