    What is the Statute of Limitations for Camp Lejeune Toxic Water Claims?

    In the US, you can not sue the government unless Congress passes a bill allowing it. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act, as part of the PACT Act, does just that. It sets up the guidelines for injured parties to receive financial compensation to cover expenses and suffering related to toxic water exposure at Camp Lejeune prior to 1988. One of the limitations the government set up was a statute of limitations for filing a claim.

    The  Camp Lejeune Justice Act was included in the Honoring Our Pact Act President Biden signed after a sweeping bipartisan vote in Congress. Prior residents, government and civilian employees, and their families have less than two years to file in order to receive financial compensation.

    What if I Get Sick from Toxic Water Exposure in the Future?

    The law states, after 2 years from the date the law goes into effect, the courts will not accept any additional claims. After 2024, no new claims will be accepted, regardless of future diagnosis and impact.
