Camp Lejeune Lawsuit & Settlement Update: Cash & Payouts up to $550K

Camp Lejeune Lawsuit & Settlement Update: Cash & Payouts up to $550K

Raeford, North Carolina – The U.S. government has introduced an expedited elective option settlement program for veterans and their families affected by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Eligible claimants may receive compensation of up to $550,000, depending on the duration of their stay on base and the severity of their illness.

This initiative aims to provide financial relief significantly sooner than the traditional settlement payments, which are expected after the settlement claim deadline of August 10, 2024.

Key Information and Support Available:

  1. Free Case Review: A no-cost evaluation of your case is available to determine eligibility.
  2. Cash Advances on Settlements: Eligible claimants can receive a cash advance on their settlement. More details can be found here.
  3. Addressing Delays: Options are available to expedite the payout process for those facing delays with current legal representation.
  4. Widespread Impact: Over a million Marines, Sailors, civilian workers, and their families were exposed to toxic water at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987. Those stationed at the base for more than 30 days during this period may qualify for financial compensation under the PACT Act.
  5. Eligibility and Compensation: Even individuals previously denied disability benefits may now qualify for compensation or pension benefits. The PACT Act provides opportunities for back pay, settlement monies, and future compensation or pension payments.
  6. Settlement Program Details: Eligible claimants can receive up to $550,000 through the elective option program before the August 24 settlement deadline. The settlement process involves the Torts Branch, the DOJ, and the Navy.

To date, more than $14.4 million has been paid out through the Elective Option, with the government estimating over $21 billion in total compensation for Camp Lejeune claims. However, only around 6% of claims have received an offer under the Elective Option so far.

The Elective Option categorizes illnesses into two tiers, with Tier-1 encompassing more serious health conditions like cancer, which may warrant higher compensation than Tier-2 illnesses.
