According to the JAG Tort Claim Unit, nearly 15,000 Camp Lejeune claims have been brought on behalf of Marines, their families, and civilians exposed to toxic water at the Base, as of December 20, 2022. This is a roughly 10,000 claim increase since just two months ago.
However, at this time, no action has been taken on these claims, as JAG is still evaluating finalizing the claims review process. While filing the initial claim form is still the most crucial step to preserve your rights, it is likely that JAG will ultimately implement an electronic portal for more efficient claim submission and requesting supporting documentation, such as military and medical records.
The first step in bringing your Camp Lejeune claim is filing an administrative claim.
