Our lawyers here at The Michael Brady Lynch Firm are now handling the lawsuit claims of injuries and deaths of the water contamination at a Marine Corps base called Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. The injury criteria sets forth any injured person related to the water contamination between the years of 1953 in 1987.
The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022
A new law that was passed just recently allows for contamination lawsuits of the victims that lived on and near the military base to bring claims that would otherwise be halted by the statute of limitations. This pause on the statute of limitations will allow injured victims that suffered water toxicity-related illnesses, like cancer, to be eligible for settlement compensation by the government. Here at the Michael Brady Lynch Firm, we are taking on any and all clients who have lived near Camp Lejeune and have some form of cancer or certain birth defect that they believe was caused by the water contamination after having lived on the base or nearby for several years.
Honoring Our Pact Act
The name of the act that will allow the victims of the water contamination to bring civil lawsuits regardless of the statute of limitations is the “Honoring Our Pact Act,” also known as HOPA. The bill is currently going through the reconciliation process because of some differences in the versions of the bill passed by the House, and differences between the bill passed by the Senate.
