MASS TORT LIEN RESOLUTION
Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lien Resolution
Countless service members, their families, and civilians who lived and worked at North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 may have been exposed to toxic water sources that are believed to cause birth defects, several types of cancer, and other life-threatening diseases..
In 2022, Congress passed legislation allowing people who suffered harm from toxic water exposure on the base for at least 30 days to seek compensation for their injuries, which the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) declined to cover. There are potential VA healthcare reimbursement issues and private liens to be addressed in this litigation. Because of the years of exposure, many injured people went on to civilian work and were covered by private health insurance after their time on base. As an NC-based company, LitPRO is especially invested in this ongoing claims and litigation process, staying close to the issues and developing early strategies to address prospective healthcare liens.
