Filing a Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit

In 2012, the United States government passed the Americans Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act. This law automatically gave veterans and their families who were exposed to contaminated water supplies and suffered disabilities benefits while on base.

However, there are requirements for qualification. These requirements include:

  • Proving you were on active duty anywhere from 1953 to 1987
  • You and your family made Camp Lejeune your home for at least 30 days minimum
  • The conditions you have stem solely from the contaminated water and are considered a qualifying condition
