    • Camp Lejeune Lawsuit Updates:

        • SEPTEMBER 28TH, 2022: The U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corp, as the appropriate federal agency, has established the administrative process for filing administrative Camp Lejeune claims with the Navy. Once filed, the Navy has six months to answer and attempt to settle your administrative claim before you are legally entitled to file a Camp Lejeune lawsuit in the District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.  The Camp Lejeune Administrative Claims Packet requires that individuals seeking compensation for injuries suffered as a result of contaminated water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune complete and file Standard Form 95, provide substantiating information and documents, and complete the Questionnaire for Camp Lejeune Claimants. Additionally, you can also find the Camp Lejeune Justice Act Claims procedures form for information about the requested documentation.  If you have questions or need legal assistance filing your Camp Lejeune administrative claim for damages or a civil lawsuit or wrongful death claim, contact the Camp Lejeune Lawyers at Marin and Barrett, Inc. today.
      • SEPTEMBER 15TH, 2022: In late August, six Camp Lejeune water contamination victims filed a joint motion to consolidate their cases and argued that by doing so they will be able to achieve efficiencies and promote the speedy resolution of the claims. The Motions were filed in the United States District Court in the Eastern District of North Carolina before Judge Terrence W. Boyle. Given the large volume of anticipated Camp Lejeune lawsuits, reasonably believed to be in the hundreds of thousands to be brought by military veterans and their families, the plaintiffs argued that consolidation of the claims is warranted.  However on September 15th, 2022, Judge Boyle issued a two page ruling in which he denied the six motions to consolidate.  The Judge’s ruling means, at least for now, that there will be no U.S. Marine Corp Camp Lejeune class action lawsuits and each individual Camp Lejeune claim will need to be filed and litigated individually.
        • SEPTEMBER 12TH, 2022: According to the U.S. Navy, nearly 5,000 claims have been filed regarding contaminated water at North Carolina Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in the first month since new legislation removed roadblocks. The first step in pursuing a Camp Lejeune lawsuit is to file an administrative claim with the Office of the Judge Advocate General of the Navy’s Tort Claims Unit in Norfolk, Virginia according to the administrative process that has been established by the Navy. The Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHHS) Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry estimates as many as one million people may have been exposed to contamination, and attorneys estimate that up to 500,000 claims could be filed. If the Camp Lejeune lawsuits approach plaintiffs’ attorney estimates, it could end up as one of the largest mass litigations in U.S. history.
        • AUGUST 26TH, 2022: According to a newly released report, the Department of Veterans Affairs mishandled nearly 40% of all disability claims filed for exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, denying or delaying benefits for more than 21,000 affected veterans.  Of 57,500 Camp Lejeune disability claims filed since 2017 for illnesses related to water contamination at the military base that spanned more than 30 years, the V.A. denied 17,200 “prematurely” instead of asking for additional information, according to a report released by the VA Office of Inspector General.
      • AUGUST 10TH, 2022: The historic Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act is now law. Veterans exposed to toxic chemicals during their service are now eligible for new health care benefits and legal remedies, and with the Camp Lejeune Justice Act included in the bill, those exposed to contaminated water at the Marine Corps Base are able to file lawsuits for damages and injuries.  This is a monumental step forward in helping all veterans exposed to toxic chemicals during service and also a breakthrough in achieving justice for veterans, families, non-military staff, and other victims of water contamination at Camp Lejeune.
