Why do I need a lawyer if I want to file a Camp Lejeune toxic water claim or lawsuit?

Camp Lejeune water contamination victims can file a claim or lawsuit on their own. However, it is highly recommended they navigate this complex process with the assistance of a specialized attorney, as this will substantially increase their chances of obtaining the compensation they may be entitled to. Attorneys specializing in toxic exposure can offer legal assistance and help you determine whether you are eligible for compensation in the first place.

The assistance of a toxic exposure attorney is essential in seeking financial compensation

While not every legal matter requires a lawyer, in situations involving a legal dispute, challenge, or deal, you may not want to risk losing your chances of winning by going at it alone without the valuable opinions, strategies, and advice of a specialized attorney. Not even very experienced lawyers represent themselves in a convoluted situation where there is a high risk of losing their case. Regular people do not have the necessary knowledge and experience to challenge the argument of the other party, and this is also the case for veterans and civilians who intend to file a Camp Lejeune toxic water claim or lawsuit.

These are only some of the soundest arguments in favor of working with a specialized attorney if you would like to seek legal recourse for the health problem you developed as a consequence of water contamination at Camp Lejeune:

  • you may file the wrong documents or follow the wrong procedure, which may ruin your claim, and you may not be able to file a second time, which may deprive you of substantial compensation
  • the law, especially when it comes to toxic exposure, is extremely complex, and only a lawyer who has been pursuing this kind of case for a long time can truly help you
  • a lawyer collaborates with experts, such as medical specialists, who can prove your diagnosis is the result of your time spent at Camp Lejeune
  • if you file a lawsuit, only a well-versed attorney will know how to negotiate the settlement amount so that you can receive the largest sum of money you deserve for your suffering
  • discussing your situation with a toxic exposure lawyer is usually free of charge, and you can find out quickly whether you are entitled to compensation by virtue of their resources
  • a lawyer and their legal team will be able to give you an estimate regarding the sum of money you can obtain by filing a Camp Lejeune toxic water claim or lawsuit so that you can decide if it is worth it
  • working with a lawyer will allow you to focus on your health and treatment, as most veterans are elderly and struggle with crippling illnesses due to toxic exposure in the military
