Camp Lejeune Justice Act – Case Progression

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act allows anyone who lived or worked at the base for thirty days or more from the time period Aug. 1, 1953, to Dec. 31, 1987, and was exposed to the contaminated water on base and subsequently suffered injuries to file a claim against the U.S. government.

Claims made under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act will be handled in a two-part process.

  • Step 1: Administrative claim filed with the Department of Navy
  • Step 2: After the Administrative claim, the client will file either a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the government in the Eastern District of North Carolina – federal court.
