Don’t expect quick payouts from Camp Lejeune toxic water lawsuits

Simply serving at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, during the 25-year eligibility period isn’t enough to guarantee a cash settlement.The TV ads and colorful mailers have been relentless in recent months: “If you or someone you love served at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune prior to 1988, you may be eligible for financial compensation!”

But advocates are warning that tens of thousands of individuals who lived at the North Carolina base will never see a penny from a new law allowing civil suits against the military for water contamination injuries there.

And those who do get payouts probably won’t see any money for months or years.

Shane Liermann, deputy national legislative director at Disabled American Veterans, said, “Veterans need to make sure they’re well informed before they make any decisions about getting involved with these lawsuits, because it could actually cost them money.”

Honoring Our PACT Act Signed Into Law: Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuits Move Forward

Honoring Our PACT Act Signed Into Law: Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuits Move Forward
Wednesday, August 10, 2022
President Joe Biden signed the historic Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act into law today.

Veterans exposed to toxic chemicals during their service are now eligible for new benefits, and with the Camp Lejeune Justice Act included in the bill, those exposed to contaminated water at the Marine Corps Base are able to file lawsuits for damages and injuries.

This is a monumental step forward in helping all veterans exposed to toxic chemicals during service and also a breakthrough in achieving justice for veterans, families, non-military staff, and others who were harmed at Camp Lejeune.

Watchdog: VA mishandled one-third of Camp Lejeune contaminated water claims | The Hill

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) mishandled up to 1 in 3 veterans’ claims relating to water contamination at Camp LeJeune, according to a report released Thursday by the department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG).  Some 1 million people may have been exposed to contaminated water at the training facility between August 1953 and December 1987,according to the OIG report. OIG investigators found that the department prematurely denied more than 17,000 of the claims before sending the claimants’ letters asking for further documentation of exposure.

In another 2,300 cases, the department recorded incorrect effective dates for benefit eligibility, according to the report. Not all the mishandled cases would necessarily have resulted in benefit payouts, but veterans were underpaid by at least $13.8 million over a four-year period due to failure to assign the earliest effective date, according to the watchdog.

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — The first lawsuits under the PACT Act were filed Thursday, one day after the passage of new protections for those exposed to toxic chemicals at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday signed the PACT Act, which encompasses the Camp Lejeune Justice Act along with other legal matters pertaining to toxic exposures related to military service. The new measure signed into law gives service members more power to sue over the issue.

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act benefits veterans and families possibly harmed by exposure to toxic chemicals in the drinking water on the North Carolina military base after investigators found the water was contaminated with volatile organic compounds and more than 70 other highly toxic substances.

The contaminated water, which was used for cooking, drinking and bathing, could impact the health of people who lived, worked or served at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between Aug. 1, 1953, and Dec. 31, 1987.

Common injuries, diseases and illnesses resulting from the contamination include various cancers, miscarriage, leukemia, Parkinson’s Disease and birth defects.

Explaining the Camp LeJeune water contamination crisis | Paid Content | weareiowa.com

Attorney Kim Baer talks about a the US Senate bill, that is expected to be signed by the President this week, that protects Marines and their families who were stationed or worked at Camp LeJeune, North Carolina. From 1953 to 1987, the drinking water at the United States Marine Corps (USMC) Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina may have been contaminated. During that time, nearly a million civilian workers, military service members, and their families were potentially exposed to dangerous chemicals that can cause cancer and other serious health issues. Kim runs through a list of health issues that may have been related to the water supply at the time, requirements and suggestions of steps that should be taken to address the situation.

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune - Wikipedia

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune1[2] is a 246-square-mile (640 km2)[3] United States military training facility in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Its 14 miles (23 km) of beaches make the base a major area for amphibious assault training, and its location between two deep-water ports (Wilmington and Morehead City) allows for fast deployments. The main base is supplemented by six satellite facilities: Marine Corps Air Station New River, Camp Geiger, Stone Bay, Courthouse Bay, Camp Johnson, and the Greater Sandy Run Training Area. The Marine Corps port facility is in Beaufort, at the southern tip of Radio Island (between the NC State Port in Morehead City, and the marine science laboratories on Pivers Island in Beaufort). It is occupied only during military port operations. In November 2022, it will be hosting the Armed Forces Classic.

Camp Lejeune encompasses 156,000 acres, with 11 miles of beach capable of supporting amphibious operations, 32 gun positions, 48 tactical landing zones, three state-of-the-art training facilities for Military Operations in Urban Terrain and 80 live fire ranges to include the Greater Sandy Run Training Area. Military forces from around the world come to Camp Lejeune on a regular basis for bilateral and NATO-sponsored exercises.

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination History | St. Lawrence County

     The story of what some scientists call the worst public drinking-water contamination in the nation's history is told in thousands of Marine Corps, North Carolina and federal documents produced by the EPA investigation of Camp Lejeune water in the 1980s.  That probe led to the camp being listed as a Superfund site in 1989. Camp Lejeune is a vital base to the Marines. It was founded in 1941 on North Carolina's Atlantic coast and is one of the Corps' busiest and largest bases. Like other military bases of the era, environmental stewardship there often lagged. The EPA called Lejeune a "major polluter" in the 1970s. The Corps says it disposed of wastes in those early years in ways consistent with common practices of the time. Records show the Marines dumped oil and industrial wastewater in storm drains. Potentially radioactive materials were buried, including carcasses of dogs used in testing. The camp even located a day care in a former malaria control shop where pesticides were mixed and stored.

Why has Camp Lejeune become such a hot topic of late?

On Aug. 8, President Joe Biden signed into law a bill that culminated months of debate and votes in Congress.

Ever since, Camp Lejeune has been a talked about subject.

But what exactly is Camp Lejeune and why has it been a hot topic of late?

Here’s a brief primer on Camp Lejeune.

What is Camp Lejeune?
Camp Lejeune is a U.S. military training base located in Jacksonville, North Carolina. It is located along a 14-mile stretch of beaches and is the largest Marine Corps base on the East Coast. The base is 153,439 acres in size.

The base has a population of 170,000 people, according to the Marines’ website.

Why has there been such controversy regarding Camp Lejeune?
It was discovered that from 1953 until 1987, people who lived or worked at the camp drank and bathed in water that was contaminated with toxins.

Potential victims couldn’t get compensation because of a statute of repose in North Carolina that precludes the filing of tort claims after 10 years.

AGENCY:

Department of Veterans Affairs.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amends its adjudication regulations regarding presumptive service connection, adding certain diseases associated with contaminants present in the base water supply at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune (Camp Lejeune), North Carolina, from August 1, 1953, to December 31, 1987. This final rule establishes that veterans, former reservists, and former National Guard members, who served at Camp Lejeune for no less than 30 days (consecutive or nonconsecutive) during this period, and who have been diagnosed with any of eight associated diseases, are presumed to have incurred or aggravated the disease in service for purposes of entitlement to VA benefits. In addition, this final rule establishes a presumption that these individuals were disabled during the relevant period of service for purposes of establishing active military service for benefits purposes. Under this presumption, affected former reservists and National Guard members have veteran status for purposes of entitlement to some VA benefits. This amendment implements a decision by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs that service connection on a presumptive basis is warranted for claimants who served at Camp Lejeune during the relevant period and for the requisite amount of time and later develop certain diseases.

Details about the Camp Lejeune Poisonous Water Settlement - Web papa Ji

Hundreds of people have been uncovered to harmful substances from 1953 to 1987 because of the dangerously polluted water on the Army Station, Camp Lejeune. Because of their publicity, a lot of Servicemen and their household who labored and lived within the camp presently suffered most cancers and varied different illnesses.

Regrettably, the statute of limitations prevented victims from acquiring damages reimbursement for his or her losses. A brand new federal regulation, although, is nearing completion. Congress is anticipated to move this measure quickly, and the president will signal it.

The victims of this contaminated water will be capable of convey lawsuits beneath the Camp Lejeune Justice Act (CLJA) of 2022 to recoup the required damages.

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Presumptive Conditions | Dolman Law Group

Service members can face a multitude of dangers during their time in the military. Most people may picture physical wounds when personnel experience harm and need to apply for benefits. However, disabilities can arise from severe illnesses due to chemical exposure.

Plenty of marines develop various debilitating diseases. Locations like Camp Lejeune and the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) in New River, North Carolina, had issues with unsafe drinking water. As a repercussion, a notable portion of former military members suffers from presumptive conditions.

Symptoms of Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

Matt Dolman and Stan Gipe discuss the various symptoms that veterans and their family members who spent time at Camp Lejeune now present with. The water contamination at Camp Lejeune and Marine Core Air Station New River were at alarmingly high rates with carcinogens present in amounts that greatly exceeded what was considered safe by the environmental protection agency (EPA).

How Much Compensation Do I Get For Camp Lejeune Water Contamination? – AmO Magazine

From 1953 to 1987, military members, including Marines and sailors, their families, and military-civilian contractors were exposed to contaminated drinking water in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Sadly, many of these people still struggle with the long-term effects of the diseases such as cancer, respiratory issues, and even neurological conditions associated with this contaminated drinking water.

If you or someone you know was stationed or living in Camp Lejeune for more than 30 days between 1953 and 1987, you may be entitled to compensation from Camp Lejeune Water contamination lawsuits.

What Lead to Camp Lejeune Water Contamination?
Between 1953 and 1987, millions of people were exposed to contaminated drinking water in Camp Lejeune, a Marine training base in North Carolina. Evidence suggests that the water was contaminated with toxic chemicals known as solvents, which included:

Trichloroethylene (TCE)

In addition, you must have been living on the base for 30 days or more. A new PACT act signed by President Biden on August 8, 2022, allows civilian contractors, military members, and their families living on the base during this time to sue the federal government for compensation. This was once impossible due to other strict laws against suing the federal government for compensation.

Camp Lejeune Contaminated Water Compensation Qualifications

People who served at one of the Marine Corps bases at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina prior to 1987 might be eligible for certain benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River were being serviced by two wells that contained contaminated water.

Servicemen and women who worked or lived on these bases, as well as their family members living on base were unknowingly drinking water that contained chemicals that can cause major health issues. The Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012 addresses the conditions that can lead to costly medical care.

As part of the act, people who served at either of those two bases for at least 30 days from August 1953 through December 1987 are eligible for health care through the VA and reimbursement of related medical care expenses. Only people who didn’t receive a dishonorable discharge are eligible.
