The Tragedy of Camp Lejeune

Unfortunately for many years, servicemen, their families, and Camp Lejeune workers were unknowingly using contaminated water for drinking and bathing at Camp Lejeune. An eventual investigation into the situation determined that over a million individuals residing or employed at Camp Lejeune were exposed to water contamination between the years 1953 to 1987, which led to chronic illnesses, lifetime health issues, and death.

If there is a possibility of that, he recommends you contact his office to explore whether you should file a claim as the deadline is fast approaching.

How to Make a Camp Lejeune Claim

Herren Law has helped over 4,000 people in the Houston area with their veteran disability claims and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, so getting involved with the Camp Lejeune situation was a logical step.  Though an attorney is not required to make a claim, it is recommended, as the complexity of properly filing may be daunting.

Deadline File by July 2024: There is a deadline of two years from when the act was passed on August 10, 2022, so do not hesitate to find out as soon as possible if you or a family member may have a claim.

  • Your tenure at Camp Lejeune
  • Medical conditions that developed later, and their impact on your life
  • Provide an assessment of your case and the possibility of recovering compensation.
  • Collect and collate all required evidence to support your claims.
