Kidney cancer and kidney disease may have the strongest link to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune than any other disease or injury. Camp Lejeune kidney cancer lawsuits will be very strong claims in a courtroom.

But few of these Camp Lejeune kidney cancer lawsuits will ever go to trial. Our attorneys expect the government will offer reasonable settlement amounts to settle these claims out of court. Some may settle during the six-month administrative window required before filing a Camp Lejeune cancer lawsuit.

Why do we think settlement amounts will be offered in kidney cancer Camp Lejeune lawsuits? The link between TCE, a ubiquitous toxin in the water at Lejeune, and kidney cancer is clear. TCE has been firmly established in the medical and epidemiological literature as an agent capable of causing kidney cancer

Marines, civilian residents, and employees at Camp Lejeune may have developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma from exposure to toxic chemicals in the drinking water for over three decades. Thanks to a new federal law, victims can now file Camp Lejeune non-Hodgkin lymphoma lawsuits against the government and get financial compensation for their injuries.

Our attorneys are handling Camp Lejeune lymphoma lawsuits in all 50 states. This page will examine Camp Lejeune NHL cases and their expected settlement value.


Our attorneys are handling Camp Lejeune leukemia lawsuits in all 50 states.  Our lawyers believe that the connection between leukemia and the toxic water at Lejeune is extremely strong and, as we discuss below, why recent developments lead us to believe that the leukemia claims may be among the first in line for a Camp Lejeune settlement.

Our lawyers also speculate on the potential settlement amounts Camp Lejeune leukemia victims and wrongful death family members might recover in these lawsuits.


When will my Camp Lejeune lawsuit settle? So far, we have 42 Camp Lejeune settlements out of over 230,000 claims.

There is no Camp Lejeune class action lawsuit. But these claims have many of the same features of a class action lawsuit, and lawyers work together as they do in an MDL class action.  Famously, class action lawsuits can take up to a decade before settlement payouts are offered.

That will not happen here. Our lawyers explain below why we do not think it will be long before better Camp Lejeune settlement payouts are offered. But we need a better plan than the Elective Option because those offers will not get us far.

Our lawyers represent victims seeking to file a Camp Lejeune Parkinson’s disease lawsuit in all 50 states.

This post examines the evidence linking Parkinson’s disease to the Camp Lejeune water supply. We discuss the potential settlement amounts for a Camp Lejeune Parkinson’s disease lawsuit. Our lawyers believe the average per-person settlement payouts for Parkinson’s disease from Lejeune cases could exceed $1 million.  We explain our thinking – with the appropriate caveats – below.

The new  Lejeune settlement offer has Parkinson’s disease listed as a Tier 2 injury.  So it is Track 1  for litigation (see below) but Tier 2 for settlement.   This is completely ridiculous, but our lawyers do not think many Parkinson’s victims will be jumping on this offer even if it was listed as a Tier 1 injury (it is a $50,000 difference)

Talking about Camp Lejeune attorneys’ fees makes us uncomfortable.  But this litigation is too important not to address all of the issues that matter to Camp Lejeune victims and their families, including how much lawyers like us charge attorneys’ fees.

May 13, 2024 Update

The Camp Lejeune attorney fees issue has still not been resolved.  The government and plaintiffs’ counsel continue to clash regarding the provision in EO settlements that restricts attorney fees to the limits set by 28 U.S.C. § 2675.

If you lived or worked at Camp Lejeune at any point before 1988 and you were subsequently diagnosed with thyroid cancer, you may be able to bring a Camp Lejeune lawsuit and get financial compensation for your losses.

Our lawyers are representing victims seeking to file a Camp Lejeune scleroderma lawsuit in all 50 states.

This post will look at the evidence linking scleroderma to the Camp Lejeune water supply and the potential settlement amounts for a scleroderma disease lawsuit.

In January 2024, we learned that about 2% of Camp Lejeune claims involve systemic scleroderma. So, while not a huge chunk of the total Lejeune claims, it is still probably ranked 12th in the number of claims.  There are over 30 types of claims overall.

Our lawyers are handling Camp Lejeune bladder cancer lawsuits in all 50 states.

This page is about bladder cancer injury and wrongful death claims. Our law firm discusses the legislation that will allow a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit and how the new September 2023 settlement offer applies to bladder cancer claims.  As of January 2024, the government has made settlement offers in nine bladder cancer lawsuits.

Camp Lejuene bladder cancer cases will be strong claims with a high likelihood of good settlement payouts. Our lawyers have been saying this from day 1. Why? No reasonable person can argue that PCEs do not cause bladder cancer. The science is clear and PCEs were ubiquitous at Camp Lejeune. As this litigation has progressed, our lawyers have had increasing confidence about the compensation Lejeune bladder cancer victims will see.
