How to file a toxic water exposure claim under the PACT Act

The PACT Act opened the door for Camp Lejeune victims to seek justice. To file under the Camp Lejeune lawsuit, one must first determine eligibility. Eligibility for this lawsuit depends upon:

Time on base

Victims must have been stationed at, or working at, the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune or the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) in New River, NC between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987.

Military status

To be eligible for a claim under the Camp Lejeune lawsuit, veterans may not have a dishonorable discharge on their record. Those who were medically discharged are eligible, as are those who completed their time in service.


A doctor must have diagnosed you (or your late loved one) with one or more conditions related to the Camp Lejeune toxic water lawsuit.

After determining and verifying eligibility,  you’ll begin filing your claim.

While eligible individuals can file a claim online, by mail, or in person on their own, we recommend you seek help from an experienced attorney. Legal firms with Camp Lejeune claims experience move your claim through efficiently, helping you meet the August deadline. Your military records showing your time in service are required, as are any medical records verifying your presumptive conditions related to toxic water exposure at Camp Lejeune. These conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • bladder cancer
  • breast cancer
  • kidney cancer
  • infertility (female)
  • esophageal cancer
  • hepatic steatosis
  • leukemia
  • lung cancer
  • miscarriage
  • lymphoma
  • renal toxicity
  • scleroderma
  • multiple myeloma
  • neurological and neurobehavioral effects
  • myelodysplastic syndromes

Once completed, the office of Veterans Affairs (VA) receives your claim.

What’s next in the filing process?

Don't miss the deadline!

Now is the time to file your Camp Lejeune toxic water lawsuit claim!

Once you file your claim with the VA, you wait for a decision. You should receive this within 189 days after filing. If you are denied, or if you receive no response within the 180 day window, your attorney will provide options suited to your case. Continuing forward with a civil lawsuit is possible for some victims, depending on their specific circumstances. Your attorney must fight for your best interest and secure a settlement that compensates you (or your family) for medical costs, funeral expenses, and other itemized charges related to damages listed in the Camp Lejeune toxic water lawsuit.

What happens if my Camp Lejeune Toxic Water lawsuit case goes to court?

If your initial claim was denied, and your lawyer suggested a civil lawsuit, you’ll take the case to court. Your lawyer must prove that you deserve a payout.

Therefore, the following factors could impact your claim:

  • sustained damages
  • inclusion of wrongful death in your claim
  • the extent of pain and suffering related to your toxic water exposure
  • your prognosis based on your diagnoses
  • medical expenses and financial damages accrued due to your time at Camp Lejeune
