Does Camp Lejeune claim/lawsuit affect VA disability?

No. Recovering financial compensation by filing a lawsuit under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act does not prevent veterans from obtaining VA disability compensation. As long as they struggle with a crippling illness, veterans can get compensation both from the government and the VA.

Filing a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit does not cancel your right to VA disability compensation

Marines who spent time at Camp Lejeune while the drinking water was contaminated have the right to file a lawsuit with the government and to get VA disability compensation. If you are a veteran, filing a lawsuit will not cancel your right to VA disability compensation. Depending on how severe your disease is, the VA will assign you a disability percentage ranging between 10% and 100%. While veterans with a 10% disability rating will receive $165 per month, those with a 100% disability rating will receive between $3,757 and $4,295 per month.

We strongly encourage veterans injured by drinking toxic water at Camp Lejeune to file a lawsuit, as the compensation they can obtain can greatly help with covering medical expenses and other costs. To file a lawsuit under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, veterans should work with a very experienced attorney, as the process is very complex and tedious, requiring specialized knowledge. Our attorneys have over 30 years of experience in filing toxic exposure claims, and many of our clients are veterans injured by toxic exposure in the military.
