Martin & Jones, PLLC logo

“We would like to express our gratitude to you (Hunt Willis) for accepting our case. First of all, when I called this law firm, a very sweet and kind lady answered the telephone and gave me assurance by asking and going over the accident with me, while my husband was in the hospital. I felt assured I was doing the right thing for us. She was so helpful in so many ways. What a professional lady. Secondly, we are much pleased that you have settled this case with the insurance company to receive the proper amount to assist us in so many ways. My husband and I are very happy with you and the firm in handling our case. You made us have confidence in your professional and integrity along with your assistant Ms. Routh, when you both came to see us in our home, in which we saw your compassion and thoughtfulness at that time. We will never forget what you have done for us, and we thank the lord for directing me to contact this firm. I’m glad I did.”

Our North Carolina Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawyers Are Here to Help You Recover the Compensation You Deserve

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 provides a new source of financial recovery for individuals and families affected by the contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune from 1953 to 1987. The claims period is now open, and eligible individuals and families have until August 2024 to file claims. But, there are several important reasons to file promptly, and all claimants should work with an experienced Camp Lejeune water contamination lawyer in North Carolina.

Why Should You Hire a North Carolina Camp Lejeune Attorney?

1. A Lawyer Can Determine if You Have a Claim Under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022

Not everyone who has spent time at Camp Lejeune is eligible to receive financial compensation under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022. The Act has several eligibility requirements, and before you file a claim, you need to make sure you are eligible. When you hire a lawyer, your lawyer will assess your eligibility, and, if necessary, your lawyer can file quickly to preserve your legal rights.

2. A Lawyer Can Collect the Evidence Needed to Prove Your Claim

Filing a claim under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 is not like filing a claim for Medicare, Medicaid, or other government benefits. It is a much more involved process, and for most claimants, it will mean filing in federal court in North Carolina.

What evidence will your lawyer need? The evidence needed to secure compensation for Camp Lejeune water contamination falls into three main categories: First, your lawyer will need to present evidence confirming that you were at Camp Lejeune and exposed to the injury-causing contaminants during the relevant time period. Second, your lawyer will need to present evidence that fully documents your injury and its relationship to contaminated water, and finally, your lawyer will determine the current and future value of your contamination-related medical condition.

3. A Lawyer Can Deal with the Federal Government for You

When you hire a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawyer, your lawyer will deal with the federal government for you. Lawyers will become familiar with the claims process, and they will be able to use this familiarity to help you file for compensation successfully.

4. A Lawyer Can Help You Address Any Issues That May Arise

Given that filing a Camp Lejeune water contamination claim involves dealing with the federal government, claimants can expect issues to arise. Some potential issues claimants may need to work with their lawyers to overcome include the following:

  • Responding to government requests for additional information or documentation regarding your time at Camp Lejeune or your medical condition caused by contaminated water
  • Finding experts to evaluate and assist proving your case
  • Evaluating any settlement offers you receive from the federal government and deciding whether a settlement is in your best interests
  • Offsetting your compensation award against any VA benefits, you may have received for your Camp Lejeune contaminated water exposure

When seeking financial compensation from the federal government, numerous issues can delay the process—and potentially jeopardize your financial recovery. To make sure you have the best chance to recover just compensation as quickly as possible, you should have a North Carolina Camp Lejeune water contamination lawyer on your side.

5. A Lawyer Can Take Your Camp Lejeune Claim to Court

If and when the government denies your administrative claim, you will need to take your claim to court. Under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022, all claimants must file their lawsuits in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. Going to federal court is a process all on its own, and after receiving a denial at the administrative level, Camp Lejeune claimants will need to have an experienced lawyer representing them in court.
