Determining Damages For Your Contaminated Water Claim

VOC There is strong scientific evidence connecting the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that were found in on-base water samples to the development of chronic issues, such as deadly diseases such as kidney cancer, esophageal cancer, lung cancer, Parkinson’s disease, aplastic anemia, multiple myeloma, and female infertility. Suppose that you, or a loved one, have been diagnosed with a serious health issue after being exposed to contaminated water; while no amount of money can erase your pain and suffering, compensation can help you pay for vital medical treatment. Victims of the Camp Lejeune water contamination who have been diagnosed with qualifying health issues may qualify to seek the following damages:

  1. Lost salary and other work-related benefits from missed work because of medical appointments and feeling sick;
  2. Reduced future earning capacity caused by your disease;
  3. Expenses for all past, present, and future medical treatments resulting from your cancer and other illnesses;
  4. Pain and suffering (physical, mental and emotional) caused by your related health problems, as well as treatment;
  5. Loss of enjoyment in life;
  6. Loss of consortium;
  7. Any permanent disabilities suffered; and
  8. All other unanticipated damages that are associated with your condition.

Our battle-tested attorneys can provide you with more detailed information regarding payouts, and potential settlement offers as lawsuits progress. The compensation amount for your specific case is contingent on the time spent on the base, conditions you were diagnosed with, total damages suffered, and the overall impact the exposure has had on your quality of life.



Camp Lejeune Wrongful Death Claims

When someone dies as a direct consequence of another’s carelessness, the victim’s surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit against any parties deemed to be responsible. The poisonous chemicals in Camp Lejeune’s drinking water caused thousands of former service members and their loved ones on the base to die prematurely from diseases like liver cancer, bladder cancer, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022, family members of victims who died from a health condition linked to the water contamination will be entitled to bring wrongful death lawsuits against the federal government, even if the person died decades ago. The victim’s family might be able to recover compensation for past and future damages such as:

  1. All expenses for the victim’s medical treatment incurred for his or her chronic illness;
  2. The decedent’s pain and suffering caused by their toxic exposure;
  3. Lost income and added work-related benefits, which may include future earnings or benefits if the victim had survived;
  4. Interest payments on the judgment, which start at the time of the victim’s death;
  5. Survivor’s loss of inheritance;
  6. The value of all of the services, consortium, companionship, and protection care that the decedent provided to his or her family; and
  7. The value of parental guidance, care, and love to surviving children; and
  8. All funeral and other related burial costs.

The Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s compassionate lawyers realize that no amount of money will bring your loved one back, but compensation will help provide some crucial relief.
