Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 is currently making its way through Congress. An estimated 900,000 veterans, family members and nearby civilians may have been exposed to unsafe drinking water due to toxic chemicals at Camp Lejeune. The water contamination is linked to industrial spills, underground storage tanks, and an off-base dry cleaner and associated with a variety of health conditions.

The Act will allow people who were exposed to toxic chemicals at Camp Lejeune between August 1953 and December 1987 to file suit in U.S. federal court and seek financial compensation for illnesses they suffered as a result of the contaminated water. Individuals exposed in-utero may also be eligible.

Additional Information

Will the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 become law?

The bipartisan bill has passed the House of Representatives and is expected to pass the Senate. If approved by both chambers of Congress, it will move to the president’s desk for a signature to become law.

How much am I entitled to claim?

Every case is different, however, if this bill becomes law it will clear the path for an exception to the general rule that the federal government is not liable for injuries to service members.
