Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Settlement Amounts: What to Expect

If you suffer from a health condition caused by your exposure to contaminated water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, keep reading for some important information. A recent piece of legislation, the Honoring Our Pact Act of 2022, may entitle you to receive a portion of the Camp Lejeune water contamination settlement amounts to help cover your losses.

The bill provides approximately $6.7 billion in funding for veterans who suffered exposure to various chemicals in the toxic water at Camp Lejeune and either now live with severe related health problems or lost their lives as a result. Marine corps veterans simply deserve better.

*Please note that this article was updated on 19th January 2023, and contains the most up-to-date information regarding the Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit.

Update on the PACT Act Passed on August 2, 2022.

The Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act (PACT Act) became Federal law once President Biden signed off on the Camp Lejeune Justice Act a few months ago. Camp Lejeune lawsuits are flooding in as thousands of claims are being filed by personal injury lawyers throughout the United States on behalf of those exposed to contaminated water at the Camp Lejeune military base.

Each Camp Lejeune lawsuit will demand compensation for the individuals exposed to toxic substances in the drinking water, including future healthcare benefits for those left dealing with a myriad of health issues that require ongoing medical treatment. Before the passage of the PACT Act, Camp Lejeune victims were banned from bringing legal action under the Federal Tort Claims Act. Those who resided at Camp Lejeune can now seek toxic water compensation from the government.

Camp Lejeune Justice Act - Legislation Addresses Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

This past summer, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act was packaged into the PACT Act after it failed to pick up the necessary traction by itself. The Justice Act allows service members, contractors, civil servants, and marine defendants to seek civil recourse to achieve justice. The Act essentially allows victims to file Camp Lejeune lawsuits and have their day in court. The purpose of this legislation is to provide compensation for the myriad of medical issues associated with Camp Lejeune water contamination. This is far and away the most exhaustive legislation aimed at toxic water compensation.

We have an exhaustive list of medical issues listed below related to the toxic chemicals found at the base site. Our Camp Lejeune lawyers are now pursuing claims and lawsuits on behalf of the service people and their family members under the PACT Act. We have also seen scientific and medical evidence linking the known carcinogens contained within the toxic substances found in the drinking water to several different cancers, birth defects, and a wide array of other health problems.

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act and the overall PACT Act clears the way for individuals to pursue legal recourse against the Federal government for harms and damages caused by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.

Do you deserve compensation for Camp Lejeune's contaminated water exposure?

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Settlement Amounts; How much should you expect?

Toxic Water Compensation

The Honoring Our Pact Act (which encompasses the Camp Lejeune Justice Act) entitles veterans who suffered severe health consequences from exposure to toxic chemicals in the Camp Lejeune water supply during their service to receive compensation. A toxic water compensation fund was designed to compensate former Camp Lejeune residents who suffered from a long list of cancers and other serious health issues.

A second federal statute, the Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012 (CCLFA), entitles qualifying veterans who served at Camp Lejeune during periods of high water contamination and their family members to VA medical care. This can include compensation for care directly related to conditions caused by the contaminated Camp Lejeune water filled with toxic substances and other medical care needs.

The medical care and toxic water compensation a Marine Corps veteran receives under those laws can vary depending on certain factors. Dedicated Camp Lejeune attorneys can answer all of your questions about your specific rights.

Scope of Medical Care

Qualified individuals covered under the CCLFA include those who:

  • Served on active duty at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between August 1953 and December 1987; or
  • Lived at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days during that period while a family member served.

For conditions related to potential chemical exposure at Camp Lejeune (a qualifying condition), the VA will generally pay for all care related to the condition. Care for other health conditions related to the water contamination at Camp Lejeune may require a copayment.

Disability Benefits For Camp Lejeune Servicemembers

To qualify for disability benefits, the veteran must not have been dishonorably discharged from the military. The following illnesses are eligible for disability benefits: Bladder and kidney cancers, aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes, liver cancer, multiple myeloma, Parkinson's disease, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Camp Lejeune Contaminated Water Linked to Cancer and Other Serious Medical Issues

Qualifying conditions include eight severe diseases associated with toxic chemical exposure to Camp Lejeune water within the contaminated water supply:

  • Adult leukemia occurs when an adult patient's body may begin to make abnormal blood cells. Adult leukemia can cause fever, exhaustion, and easy bruising or bleeding. Symptoms of adult leukemia can worsen quickly if the patient does not receive prompt treatment.
  • Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes occur because the bone marrow cannot produce new cells fast enough to maintain normal body functions. Aplastic anemia may cause fatigue and difficulty fighting off infection in many patients.
  • Bladder cancer may cause frequent or painful urination or back pain. While bladder cancer can prove mild if treated early, it can cause substantial complications if the patient does not receive treatment promptly. This type of cancer has been causally related to multiple dangerous chemicals found in contaminated drinking water.
  • Esophageal cancer, which may cause pain or difficulty swallowing.
  • Breast cancer may require the removal of breast tissue. Both male and female patients can develop breast cancer.
  • Kidney cancer can cause pain, fever, tiredness, and unexplained weight loss. Like many types of cancer, kidney cancer proves highly treatable when identified in its early stages. We have already spoken with countless veterans who were previously diagnosed with kidney cancer and exposed to the contamination of Camp Lejeune water.
  • Lung cancer starts in the lungs and may result in difficulty breathing.
  • Liver cancer can take several forms but may lead to abdominal pain, weakness, swelling, and other devastating symptoms.
  • Multiple myeloma, in which cancerous cells crowd out healthy blood cells, producing proteins that may lead to complications throughout the body. Multiple myeloma may cause mental fogginess and confusion, weakness or numbness in the limbs, nausea, or fatigue.
  • Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma causes the abnormal growth of white blood cells and may lead to tumors throughout the body.
  • Parkinson's disease can cause shakiness, stiffness, and uncontrolled weakness or movements in the body. Parkinson's disease can also interfere with balance and coordination.

Patients who suffered exposure to dangerous chemicals present in the water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune may also face various other health challenges, including potential infertility. Exposure to many of the chemicals found in the Camp Lejeune water can also cause serious neurological impairments, including difficulty concentrating and behavioral changes, for which patients can also receive treatment through the VA. Many estimate that millions have developed cancer due to toxic water contamination at Camp Lejeune.

The list of qualifying conditions and other challenges described above may not fully capture all health complications caused by toxic exposure to contaminated Camp Lejeune water.

If you lived or worked on the base during the qualifying periods and struggled with any severe health problem (including cancers not named above), you may still receive healthcare under the CCLFA if you can establish through clear evidence that your diagnosis and difficulties likely result from toxic exposure to Camp Lejeune water.

Individuals might also develop secondary health complications tied to illnesses and injuries sustained from toxic exposures at Camp Lejeune, even if those primary conditions have been resolved or effectively treated. For example, liver cancer tied to toxic exposure can lead to diminished liver function. To receive care through the VA for such a secondary condition alone, a patient may need to prove its relationship to a chemical exposure-related condition.

In addition, if you received treatment outside the VA for a qualifying condition, you may have the right to pursue Camp Lejeune water contamination settlement amounts for your medical costs. A qualified lawyer can apply online to reimburse you.

How Much Compensation to Expect from Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Settlement Amounts - Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Lawsuit and Claims

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Settlement Amounts – Compensation for Toxic Water Exposure

Update 9/10/22 - Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit Settlement Amount

As previously discussed in a prior update (see 9/10/22 update), we believe the Camp Lejeune toxic water compensation payouts will be based on a grid system. We are still very early in the process, but at this point, we can organize the various types of Camp Lejeune cancer, diseases, and symptoms into different tiers. The tiers are based on the strength of scientific evidence relating cancers or diseases to the Camp Lejeune water contamination.

Camp Lejeune water contamination settlement amounts are directly tied to a growing body of scientific and medical evidence concerning each type of cancer or disease. The Department of Navy will likely value claims based on the following tiers in a grid-like system. However, a claimant does not need to accept a Camp Lejeune water contamination settlement offer. If a claimant opts to reject the offer (hopefully on the advice of experienced counsel), they can file a lawsuit in the United States Federal Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.

Camp Lejeune Cancer Types - Tier 1

  • Bladder Cancer
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Liver Cancer
  • Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
  • Breast Cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Esophageal Cancer

Camp Lejeune Cancers and Diseases - Tier 2

  • Lung Cancer
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Brain Cancer
  • Aplastic Anemia
  • Colon Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer

Camp Lejeune Cancer Lawsuit - Toxic Water Compensation

The cancers listed in tier 1 have much stronger scientific data linking each individual cancer to the contaminated toxic water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. We strongly believe (with some exceptions) a tier 1 Camp Lejeune cancer will command the largest settlements or potential jury verdicts based on the various studies performed on toxic Camp Lejeune water, Camp Lejeune victims, and peer-reviewed medical literature studying the effects of TCE, PCE, benzene and vinyl chloride exposure on humans.

Camp Lejeune residents were routinely exposed to those chemicals in the contaminated drinking water. We believe the average settlement amount for a tier 1 Camp Lejeune cancer will exceed $500,000.00. Many of the tier 1 cancer claims could warrant jury verdicts well in excess of $1,000,000.00. 

A tier 2 Camp Lejeune cancer will simply face greater scrutiny based on less definitive medical literature and studies that have been performed on the contaminated water. We are interested in representing individuals diagnosed with tier 2 Camp Lejeune cancers. However, we believe more of these claims will inevitably be tried before a jury due to anticipated unreasonable settlement offers. Further, we project tier 2 cancers as having settlement values between $250,000.00 to $500,000.00. We believe many tier 2 cancers will be subject to a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit.

Camp Lejeune veterans and family members with a tier 2 cancer should contact us right away. There are many exceptions to our projections. The age of Camp Lejeune victims, their anticipated costs of future medical care, and medical evidence will all play a large role in the value of an individual case.

Update 9/10/22 – Camp Lejune Water Contamination Lawsuit Settlement Amounts

We strongly believe the biggest case resolutions will be obtained by law firms with the financial resources and wherewithal to take Camp Lejeune cases to trial. It is difficult to foresee a global settlement down the road due to thirteen different cancers listed under the Statute as presumptive conditions.

In fact, we also believe there will be some type of grid developed based on the type of injury and age of a claimant. However, many of these cases will not fall within the settlement value of a grid. In other words, there will be certain cases, such as birth defects, among others, wherein the amount of damages makes it suitable to be tried before a jury in a Federal Court. The government will have a difficult time proving a specific cancer is not related to the water contamination at Camp Lejeune.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated the amount of Camp Lejeune settlements and legal expenses associated with handling such claims will reach $6.7 billion.

A serious diagnosis can lead to substantial financial losses, not just because of medical bills but also because of other expenses and financial strain tied to your diagnosis. For example, a medical condition can keep you out of work, severely reducing your income. You may also incur considerable transportation expenses in traveling to and from medical appointments.

The VA provides disability compensation for individuals diagnosed with qualifying conditions and other conditions proven to be related to chemical exposure to Camp Lejeune water. If you suffered a serious diagnosis tied to toxic exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, an experienced lawyer can help with obtaining VA benefits. Applying for medical benefits and disability compensation from the VA can be complex and tedious without the help of legal counsel.

Individuals injured by toxic exposures at Camp Lejeune may also have the right to take legal action demanding compensation over and above medical care and disability benefits. A skilled attorney can explore and pursue those options in appropriate cases.

Video Transcript: Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Settlement Amounts

Matt Dolman:
So in this video, this is a shot in the dark, we're going to discuss the Camp Lejeune water contamination settlement amounts or what they may be projected to be. It's early in the claims process. It's early in terms of Camp Lejeune losses being filed. And we're still learning a lot about this, and no one lawyer can give you a definitive answer. But Stan, what are we looking at in terms of ranges based on prior mass tort products we've been involved in, with many of the very same diseases? Clearly not based on the same incidents, this is different. But what are the typical settlement ranges that we're looking at for Camp Lejeune?

Stan Gipe:
Okay. Now this is really a shot in the dark, like you said earlier, and everyone's reaching out and making their estimates, but we do know some of the conditions. We do know the fund that's been established. We're estimating $6.7 billion available to distribution, to injured veterans or families and contractors. The question is, how does it get split up? How much is each person going to get? And how does that play out? Well, there's some unknowns. We don't know how many people are going to make claims yet. We estimate about 200,000 out of a potential pool of two million potential claimants. And then we don't know how many of each one of these diseases are out there. So what we're doing is we're making estimates based on logical guesses. Now, the amount you get paid is going to be directly related to the condition you suffer from. The more serious the condition, the higher the amount of payment. And it goes to medical care, suffering, all of these different things.

Matt Dolman:
And also the more advanced stage that you're in of these different, various types of cancers. They're not all related to cancer, but most of them are cancers, will also carry a lot of weight as to what the settlement amount will ultimately be.

Stan Gipe:
Right. So what we're looking, simple things like... I don't want to say simple, but a kidney cancer, something like that, we're estimating those settlement ranges somewhere between 150, 225. These are absolutely loose estimates. But if you were to just ask me to guess a range for a kidney cancer case, that's where I'd put it at this stage.

Matt Dolman:
150,000 to 225,000. Okay.

Stan Gipe:
To 225,000. When we start moving on to some different things, like Parkinson's, Parkinson's tends to compensate a little higher than a lot of the cancers. I'd look at a Parkinson's ballpark somewhere between 175,000 and 400,000. Then you get up to some of the different things because we're not just talking about veterans and their families. A lot of these chemicals cause birth defects. And birth defects are massive. And these claims tend to be very valuable because they impact a child from the moment they're born, require a lot of medical care, impact their development, their life, their ability to be employed, everything. It's all for the rest of their lives. These cases, the birth defect cases, and there's some neural tube defects, cleft lip, cleft palate, a lot of different things that can cause significant problems. These birth defect cases, we're putting in a ballpark of about 750,000 to 1.5 million at this point in time. But these are all guesses.

Matt Dolman:
750 to 1.5 million for a Camp Lejeune payout.

Stan Gipe:
Yeah. And these are all guesses. No one can rely on it. You can't count on it and say, "Hey, Stan Gipe told me I was getting this much for my claim." But if you ask me to put a guess on these numbers for some of these different claims, that's where my educated guess would be.

Matt Dolman:
So there's no typical Camp Lejeune payout. We simply don't know at this point.

Stan Gipe:
Well, no. There isn't one because we don't know the numbers yet. We can guess. And as the people we get more claims in, we know what the total claim pool is looking like, and we know the percentages of people that fall into each one of these groups, these ranges will become more definitive.

Matt Dolman:
Understood. Well, I appreciate it, Stan. Thank you for filling me in on that because literally, I was guessing and grasping at straws of this. And I know you're a little bit more experienced in this area. So again, if you have any questions, any concerns, feel free to reach out to us. Stan, what's the number?

Stan Gipe:
Well, they can always reach out to us. Really, the best way to catch us on the internet. We got a robust internet presence. But if you want to call us on the phone, call us at 1-855-332-7274.

Matt Dolman:
And again, the website is dolmanlaw.com, www.D, like in David, O-L-M-A-N Law, dolmanlaw.com. I really appreciate your time. Thank you so much, Stan. And this is a tough topic. And I know we don't know a whole lot yet, but at least we can make an estimated guess based on past products that we've handled.

Stan Gipe:
Exactly.

Matt Dolman:
Thank you.

Toxic Water Lawsuit Settlement Amounts

So far, the VA has not made Camp Lejeune water contamination settlement amounts public record.

But an experienced attorney can often calculate the amount of compensation you might seek by weighing:

  • Your specific toxic exposure-related (contaminated water) medical condition.
  • The duration and nature of your exposure to contaminated Camp Lejeune water, including whether you lived or worked on base, and the frequency with which you consumed, bathed in, or otherwise used potentially contaminated water. This will be easy to establish for Camp Lejeune residents.
  • The degree of provable financial losses you have suffered because of your diagnosis.
  • Whether you have previously had a claim for disability benefits related to your Camp Lejeune service denied by the VA.
  • We believe the value of such water contamination settlement amounts could potentially exceed $500,000.00 per claimant, if not more. In fact, the government was aware of the extent of water contamination at Camp Lejeune for years.

Having determined the amount you deserve to receive, a skilled Camp Lejeune lawyer can also take the steps necessary to secure financial compensation on your behalf. We expect Camp Lejeune settlement payouts will remain a fluid situation over the next few years.

Can One File a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit if Previously Awarded VA Benefits For The Same Injuries?

Yes! Claims brought in accordance with The Pact Act and Camp Lejeune Justice Act are separate and apart from any disability claim. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act creates a separate cause of action.

What is the average payout for the Camp Lejeune lawsuit?

Our attorneys believe that camp Lejeune cancer cases have a settlement value between $600 and $400,000.

Camp Lejeune Water Supply

The water contamination at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune existed for at least three decades. In fact, Camp Lejeune's (located in Jacksonville, North Carolina) water contamination can be attributed to the presence of a dry cleaning business located just off base. The dry cleaning operation improperly disposed of industrial solvents into the drains and the Camp Lejeune water system. In turn, these chemicals contaminated the water within the Tarawa Terrace water treatment facility and the Hadnot Point treatment plant. Toxic substances can be traced and sourced to the above-referenced water treatment plants located at the North Carolina Marine Corps Air Station and Marine Corps Base.

Water At Camp Lejeune - Contaminated With Toxic Chemicals

The industrial solvents contained the chemical PCE (perchloroethylene), a known carcinogen. Residents were routinely exposed to alarming rates of grossly contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune. Later studies indicate that contaminated drinking water was already present in 1953. However, we can be certain that the drinking water was contaminated from at least November 1957 through February 1987 (346 months). During that time period, the drinking water measured more than the allowable 5 parts per billion of PCE, which has been deemed the maximum limit by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Marine corps veterans were routinely exposed to cancer-causing chemicals.

A February 1985 study demonstrated 215 parts per billion of PCE (43 times the allowable amount) in the contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune. This is considered grossly dramatic water contamination. We know for a fact the Marine Corps and the Federal government were aware of said water contamination in 1983. However, we believe the Federal government was made aware of water contamination much earlier. Camp Lejeune victims could number in the millions. PCE has been scientifically linked to bladder cancer.

Several other dangerous chemicals were found in Camp Lejeune's contaminated drinking water. Another notable toxic substance is TCE (trichloroethylene), an organic chemical in a liquid form. TCE is often used as a degreasing solvent, leading to significant water contamination. Further, TCE is linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, kidney cancer, liver cancer, Parkinson's disease, end-stage renal disease, scleroderma, multiple myeloma, and cardiac defects, along with birth defects and possibly bladder cancer. TCE is among the most volatile organic compounds.

Other dangerous chemicals and volatile organic compounds found within the toxic water at Camp Lejeune include benzene and vinyl chloride exposure. Benzene has been causally linked to all types of leukemia and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Vinyl chloride was also discovered within the water contamination was found at alarming levels. Exposure to vinyl chloride is linked to liver cancer, brain cancer, lung cancer, and birth defects. Exposure to such chemicals includes merely drinking contaminated water.

Do I Have the Right to Pursue a Camp Lejeune Toxic Exposure Claim?

Talk to a lawyer to determine whether you may have the right to file a claim or Camp Lejeune lawsuit and what the law might entitle you to receive. Your rights may depend on how you answer the questions below.

Did you serve or live at Camp Lejeune between August 1953 and December 1987?

If you served or lived for at least 30 days at Camp Lejeune during the period associated with toxic water contamination, you may file a Camp Lejeune water lawsuit seeking compensation for your losses. You must have lived or worked on the base. The time you spent on deployment with a unit based at Camp Lejeune generally does not count toward the 30 days of exposure time.

Did you suffer a medical diagnosis tied to your potential toxic water exposure at Camp Lejeune base?

To pursue a claim, an attorney must gather and present sufficient evidence to prove that your medical diagnosis arose from your exposure to toxic chemicals in the Camp Lejeune water supply. Proving your exposure can also demonstrate that you face a significantly elevated risk of severe illness, including several types of potentially fatal cancer.

If you have questions about your right to file a claim for compensation arising from toxic exposure at Camp Lejeune, talk to an experienced Camp Lejeune claims attorney. An attorney can review your health conditions, determine your potential eligibility for benefits and compensation, and assess the losses you have suffered or likely will suffer in the future.

How Can I File a Toxic Water Lawsuit If I Served at Camp Lejeune?

If you served at Camp Lejeune and received a diagnosis related to chemical exposure through water contamination, you may need to file a claim soon to recover compensation.

Contact a knowledgeable Camp Lejeune lawsuit lawyer as soon as possible.

Start by getting in touch with a lawyer to discuss your time at Camp Lejeune, your medical diagnosis, and your potential right to benefits and compensation. Working with the right lawyer saves you a great deal of time and effort by providing insight into what compensation you may deserve, preparing a claim on your behalf, monitoring the processing of your claim, and getting you compensation as efficiently as possible. We have extensively studied the history of water contamination at Camp Lejeune. This is perhaps the biggest water contamination matter in military history.

Many veterans have suffered for years after serious diagnoses related to toxic exposures and water contamination. In some cases, they may have found themselves unable to work and may have found it very difficult to get the help they needed. A lawyer works on your behalf to get you that much-deserved compensation for your diagnosis.

Obtain a copy of your service record (or your loved one's service record).

To establish your entitlement to compensation for a devastating toxic exposure-related diagnosis, you will need to show that you served or lived at Camp Lejeune during the period of high chemical water contamination and exposure. You may need a copy of your service record or your loved one's service record to show the assignment to Camp Lejeune. The service record will also show if you lived on base during that time, making it easier to establish the likely cause of your diagnosis.

In some cases, your medical records may date back many years, especially if you have struggled with toxic exposure-related health complications for a long time. Obtain copies of those medical records from your provider(s), including copies of any bills that you may have had to pay out of pocket.

The VA will not reimburse you for medical costs paid by other compensation funds but may pay for your financial losses, even if you received your diagnosis and treatment before the government acknowledged the toll of toxic exposures in the water at Camp Lejeune.
