Smokers with cancer might also be eligible to file a Camp Lejeune water contamination claim
Even if you are or were a smoker, if you spent time at Camp Lejeune while the drinking water was contaminated with volatile organic compounds and developed cancer, this should not prevent you from seeking compensation, as you might qualify to file a claim. This might also apply to individuals with cancers that have a strong connection with tobacco use, such as lung cancer and esophageal cancer. As long as a medical expert can prove that your disease is the consequence of drinking contaminated water and not smoking or chewing tobacco, you might be entitled to compensation.
Therefore, smokers and ex-smokers can also seek compensation under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. However, if you have a cancer related to smoking or chewing tobacco, we advise you to look for a medical professional with significant experience in determining the cause of your disease, as the causal relation between your cancer and toxic water exposure must be proven to file a claim. If you intend to file a claim, our attorneys, who have over 30 years of experience in toxic exposure cases, will gladly help you find out if you are eligible as a smoker or ex-smoker.
Our skilled attorneys can help you file your Camp Lejeune water contamination claim
Since 1990, the mission of our law firm has been to provide quality legal assistance to toxic exposure victims, including veterans. If you spent time at Camp Lejeune while the drinking water was contaminated and now struggle with a linkable disease, we encourage you to contact us. As a Marine veteran, you will only have to send our legal team your military records, which you must retrieve, and your medical records to have your case evaluated. Family members will need to submit evidence of their stay at the military base along with their medical records.
After we carefully and thoroughly assess your situation, we will let you know if you are eligible to file a Camp Lejeune water contamination claim. Eligible individuals will have their claims filed as soon as possible, as we understand that many toxic exposure victims need additional money to afford treatment, which can be very expensive. If you are too ill to participate in the legal process, you can have a family member help you, and our compassionate team will also go to great lengths to make it easy to navigate for you. We work on a contingency fee basis.
