An estimated 900,000 civilians and veterans may have fallen prey to toxic contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.
Camp Lejeune Justice Act
On August 10th, 2022, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 was signed into law. The Act has allowed veterans, family members, and nearby civilians to file claims. The contamination has been linked to underground storage tanks, industrial spills, and an off-base dry cleaner. However, claimants only have 2 years from August 10th, 2022, to file for compensation under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act.
