Camp Lejeune Justice Act is part of a larger bill: H.R. 3967 – Honoring out PACT act of 2022.
The Bill was signed into an Act as of August 10, 2022.
You have two (2) years from the enactment of the Act (August 10, 2022) to file a claim.
A person must have been exposed to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune from August 1, 1953 to December 31, 1987 for at least 30 days, and the injury must be caused by exposure to the contaminated water.
Death cases that would have been past the statute of limitations before this Act are now able to be filed.
Exposure to the contaminated water is required. This concern extends mainly to civilian contractors. Merely being present on the base will not be enough.
Some health problems are “Tier 1” and are presumed to have been caused by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. The conditions contained in Tier 1 include: Bladder Cancer, Breast Cancer, Esophageal Cancer, Kidney Cancer, Leukemia, Lung Cancer, Multiple Myeloma, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Female Infertility, Hepatic Steatosis, Miscarriage, Myelodysplastic Syndromes, Neurobehavioral Effects, Parkinson’s Disease, Renal Toxicity, and Scleroderma.
There are some “Tier 2” health problems that are included, but those require more proof.
