Our attorneys handle Camp Lejeune liver cancer and fatty liver disease lawsuits in all 50 states.

You can argue that liver cancer is the most potent disease linked to the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Why?   Unlike most diseases from Camp Lejeune’s toxic water, liver cancer is linked to all three significant contaminants at Camp Lejeune: TCE, PCE, and benzene.

So we expect the government to be as willing to offer reasonable settlement amounts in Camp Lejeune liver cancer lawsuits because of the evidence that liver cancer is linked to Lejeune.

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 September 6, 2023, 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)

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.

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.

When will my Camp Lejuene case settle?  Thousands of veterans and their family members have filed or will soon be filing Camp Lejeune cases seeking settlement compensation for injuries caused by the contaminated water have this question.

There is no Camp Lejeune class action lawsuit.  But these claims have many of the same features of a class action lawsuit.  Famously, class action lawsuits can take up to a decade before settlement payouts are offered.  Our lawyers explain below why we do not think it will be long before Camp Lejeune settlement payouts are offered.

This post provides the best answer we have to the question of  “When is my Camp Lejeune case going to settle?” Our attorneys explain

Talking about Camp Lejeune attorneys’ fees makes us a little bit 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 are charging in attorneys’ fees.

September 20, 2023 Update

The US government has introduced a cap on lawyers’ fees tied to the Camp Lejeune toxic water cases. This decision, touted as a means to safeguard the financial interests of affected veterans, mandates that plaintiffs’ attorneys can only gather 20% from administrative settlements and 25% from litigation payouts.

The big news is that there is a Camp Lejeune settlement offer for some victims. The Department of Justice and the Navy have introduced a streamlined process known as the “Elective Option” to expedite compensation for individuals affected by the contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, which occurred between the 1950s and 1980s and resulted in various health issues.  The word expedite is no mistake.  They want you to know they will try to get you your settlement amounts faster under this option.

Is this Camp Lejeune settlement offer exciting?  No. It is less than Camp Lejeune lawyers expected from the DOJ in their first shot across the bow.  But it will appeal to victims in a small minority of cases… and it is a start. (Could they have made this same settlement offer a year ago?  Yes.  But that is a story for another day.)

On this page, we will go over the basics of the Camp Lejeune settlement program and explain exactly who qualifies for it and how much compensation they would get.

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.


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.
