There’s no shortage of attorneys ready and willing to take on your Camp Lejeune water contamination claim. Hundreds of ads on TV, radio, and online can be overwhelming and leave you wondering which one to choose. You only have a short time frame for filing your claim. So how do you find a Camp Lajeune claim lawyer for your case?

Take Advantage Of A Free Consultation

You only have one chance at a Camp Lejeune water contamination claim, so it’s important to find the right attorney who can help. You need to feel comfortable with the person you’re working with for something too personal.

Most Camp Lejeune claim lawyers are offering free consultations before hiring. Think of these as two-way interviews. You’re interviewing the attorney to see if he or she is right for you, and they are interviewing you to see if they have a case and if it’s something they can take on.

You don’t have to work with the first attorney you speak with. In fact, you can speak with more than one attorney before deciding on which one to work with for your claim.

Ask Questions

Before signing up with a law firm, there are several things you need to know:

• How familiar they are with the water contamination problem and these kinds of cases

• Their experience with handling federal cases

• Litigation experience

• Their fees for legal services

• What resources do they have to support your case, such as expert witnesses

• Estimates on what types of compensation you might be able to collect

• What you can reasonably expect for your case

• An idea of what kind of timeline you can expect

Before deciding on what attorney to hire, seek out online client reviews, such as Google, to learn how prior clients feel about the attorney and their service.

Remember that this type of claim is not a VA disability claim. It’s a claim against the US Government that may eventually become a lawsuit. The attorney you choose must be prepared to go to trial if necessary.

Additionally, most lawyers do not ask for their legal fees out of pocket. Rather, they use what’s called a “contingency fee” arrangement, which means their fees come from the money they win for their clients. When they discuss your case with you, they know whether they can win your case beforehand.
