CAMP LEJEUNE JUSTICE IS NOW IN PLAY
For all of our veterans and their families, I am pleased to report that President Biden signed into law the Honoring our PACT Act, which includes the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022. We have posted before that some advertising was making promises that could not be kept, but with the effort of a great coalition of veteran advocates and our legal advocacy group, this is now law.
The new law creates, among other things, a landmark remedy for individuals, particularly veterans and their surviving family members, who resided, worked, or were exposed to a long list of pollutants in the water supplied by the United States at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987.
We celebrate the passage of this important bill to provide justice for veterans and their families, and we also thank all the veterans who have fought so hard for this legislation.
Fortunately, our office has been a national leader in veterans’ claims against government agencies under the FTCA, and the Camp Lejeune Justice Act copies the FTCA claims process. So, we sit in a great position to answer any questions you have, or to process your claim if it fits the criteria. PLEASE NOTE that we are not part of the advertising for these cases you see on TV. We are a firm that actually does the work, and we advise attorneys all over the country on the FTCA requirements and process. Many of the advertisers push that these are easy claims. We, on the other hand, actually know what it takes to make a claim work.
Veterans and families and others who were exposed to poisons in the water at Camp Lejeune have long been denied even a chance in court. There is now a NEW deadline for these claims. You have 2 years from the date the Act was signed into law to make a proper claim to the proper agency, and then the deadlines of the FTCA apply after that.
Do not delay in contacting us if you know someone who has suffered cancers, or has died, after being at least 30 days at Camp Lejeune from 1953 through 1987. We will post a list of the recognized illnesses in another post.
