How Can a Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Attorney Help Your Case?
Camp Lejeune water contamination attorneys working on your case can help you pursue compensation. They can handle the complex legal duties required to file a Camp Lejeune case, such as:
Explaining if You Meet the Qualifying Criteria
Our attorney will listen to the details of your case to determine if you qualify for compensation. This includes gathering the information to prove the amount of time you spent at Camp Lejeune, the duration and extent of toxic water exposure, and how it has impacted your life.
Communicating With Medical Experts
Our team can consult with medical experts and collect medical documents to prove that your condition can be connected to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Your medical bills may also be useful, as they prove how much money you spent to treat your condition.
Completing All Necessary Paperwork on Time
When you hire one of our attorneys, they can fill out and submit legal paperwork for you. According to the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022, you have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit for financial recovery.

We will collect evidence that proves you meet the qualifying criteria to take legal action for your Camp Lejeune-related illness. Evidence can include your housing records, marriage documents, photos, videos, bills, and receipts.
Identifying the Damages You Suffered
To prove that you deserve compensation, we will need to show that you suffered damages because of the toxic water exposure. We can calculate the total cost of your economic and non-economic losses. Then, we can advocate for your fair financial recovery.
