You May Qualify for VA Benefits After Camp Lejeune Exposure
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), veterans and family members who lived or served at Camp Lejeune for 30 cumulative days between August 1953 through December 1987 may qualify for disability benefits. You cannot have been dishonorably discharged from the military if you wish to apply for disability benefits.
Additionally, you must have one of the following presumptive conditions:
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Liver cancer
- Adult leukemia
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Parkinson’s disease
- Multiple myeloma
- Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes
VA recognizes that the above conditions are both disabling and connected to toxic water at Camp Lejeune. Therefore, to be eligible for benefits, you need only prove you have a qualifying condition and were on the base during the specified time.
Our Attorneys Will Establish Your Right to Compensation
You can seek damages not covered by VA benefits via a Camp Lejeune lawsuit. Additionally, you can seek VA benefits for illnesses not included in the presumptive conditions list. However, you must establish a causal relationship between your disease and the toxic water.
Van Law can help you apply for VA benefits, appeal denied claims, or help you take legal action. Our lawyers can:
- Obtain documentation proving you lived or worked at Camp Lejeune during the contamination period (i.e., base housing records, tax records, utility bills, or service orders)
- Obtain documentation proving you have a qualifying relationship with a service member who was on active duty at Camp Lejeune (i.e., a birth certificate, adoption papers, or marriage license)
- Obtain medical records proving you have bladder cancer or one of the other 14 qualifying conditions
- Collect medical and scientific evidence proving your condition is related to Camp Lejeune’s toxic water
- Hire and consult with healthcare professionals, scientists, economists, and other relevant case experts

What Is the Relationship Between Camp Lejeune Toxic Water and Bladder Cancer?
VA reports that two on-base water wells at Camp Lejeune contained hazardous, cancer-causing chemicals, including benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), and vinyl chloride. Exposure to certain toxic chemicals is linked to bladder cancer.
If you have bladder cancer caused by Camp Lejeune toxic water or another condition connected to exposure to contaminants in the on-base water supply, you deserve compensation. We can help you secure the financial resources you need to pay for your medical treatments and provide for your family.
