People with a family history of cancer are exempt from filing a Camp Lejeune water contamination claim
In the regrettable event that you lived at Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 when the drinking water abounded in toxic chemicals, and you developed cancer but also have a family history of cancer, you cannot file a claim to obtain financial compensation. The reason why people with a family history of cancer are exempt from seeking financial compensation under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act is that the medical experts who will assess their cases will be unable to determine whether their disease occurred due to their predisposition to it or due to contaminated water exposure. In the absence of strong evidence, your claim will inevitably be rejected.
To file a Camp Lejeune water contamination claim, you must have strong evidence of the causal relation between your cancer and drinking contaminated water at the military base. Because your cancer might have developed as a consequence of your genetic predisposition to it and not as a result of consuming toxic water at the military base, the medical experts reviewing your case will most likely deem you ineligible to file a Camp Lejeune claim. Therefore, people with a family history of cancer who struggle with a malignant disease cannot file a claim for toxic water exposure, as the connection between their cancer and toxic exposure cannot be proven.
