The United States Senate voted to pass the Camp Lejeune Justice Act on June 16, 2022. This bill protects service men and women and their families as well as other civilians who lived and/or worked at Camp Lejeune who were potentially exposed to toxic drinking water during the time between 1953 and 1987.
Since this bill has gone into effect, military members and others are able to file claims against the US government. They are allowed to seek reparations for any illnesses or conditions that are related to exposure to the toxic water. During the 34-year period, the water was heavily contaminated with dangerous chemicals and probable carcinogens.
To be eligible for compensation from this incident, the military members, family members, and civilians must have lived on the base or worked at Camp Lejeune during the time period for at least 30 days. Numerous illnesses have been linked to this exposure, including infertility, miscarriages, various types of cancer, and other diseases. All victims are eligible even if they were denied claims for disability by the Veterans Administration in the past.
The Act is awaiting the signature of the President. Once the bill passes, victims will have a time period for which they can file a claim. This time will be limited, and any claims not filed during the time will not be eligible in the future. After the bill has been officially signed into law, the claims can begin immediately.
