The Compensation You May Receive for Lung Cancer Due to Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune
If your lung cancer is determined to be connected to the time you spent at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987, you may receive compensation for the following damages:
The debilitating effects of lung cancer may have prevented you from working. You likely needed to take time away to attend doctor’s appointments and recover from treatment.
The income you lost during that time is compensable. If you had to change careers due to your illness, the income differential is something you could be compensated for, as is a total loss of income, if you are unable to work at all.
For a sickness such as lung cancer, medical expenses build up quickly. Any costs that you incurred because of your condition may be compensable. Those costs may include medical specialists, treatment, rehabilitation, short- or long-term care, in-home care, transportation, lodging, or other items specific to your needs.
Pain and Suffering
You may be compensated for the physical pain and suffering you experience from your cancer now, and for what you may expect to suffer in the future.
Loss of a Loved One
If you have lost a loved one to lung cancer associated with exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, please accept our condolences. Although we understand that there’s no way to change what happened, you may be eligible for compensation. Our attorneys will discuss how that applies to your specific case during your initial consultation.
Generally, you may be compensated for the loss of financial support, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of parental guidance and support, medical costs prior to death, and funeral and burial expenses.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.Milby Mags
Got in an accident at the beginning of the year and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.Teresa Cuthbertson
