What is the Average Payout for the Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?

Camp Lejeune settlement amounts will vary depending on the length of exposure and presenting symptoms. For now, the important points to remember are that the government has set aside money for people injured from Camp Lejeune’s toxic water and that all claims must be filed by August 9, 2024

What is the average payout for the Camp Lejeune lawsuit? Settlements per person are likely to range from $10,000 to over $1 million, depending on the length of exposure and the severity of the injuries. Once cases are tried and jury verdicts rendered, the verdict amounts should play a large role in determining the values of similar cases. 

In October 2023, the first Camp Lejeune claim was settled through the Navy's voluntary Elective Option payment. Those who qualify for the Elective Option could receive compensation in just a few months, but the amounts are low to moderate. Claims settled through the Elective Option are expected to range from $100,000 to $550,000. Contact a Camp Lejeune attorney to learn more.

What is the Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act (CLJA), filed in 2022, allows anyone affected by Camp Lejeune’s water contamination between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, to file a claim against the federal government. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act does not require that you were a service member through the Department of the Navy; children and other relatives living on base, as well as federal contractors who did work at Camp Lejeune, are eligible to file an administrative claim. Lawsuits resulting from the CLJA are collectively known as Camp Lejeune lawsuits.

Camp Lejeune trials are set to begin in the Spring of 2024, and settlement offers are already being sent out to claimants with qualifying health conditions. Over the course of the year, we will begin to gain a better understanding of expected verdicts based on case type, which will help establish general values of specific types of claims.

We are honored to represent this broad swath of America’s veterans and their families.

The process of proving your injuries and navigating your claim can be complicated.
