Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2021

Details about the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2021

In response to the diagnoses of deadly conditions suffered by those stationed, living, and working at the military base, Congress outlined a couple of specific pieces of legislation over the years that paved the way for justice and compensation to those affected.

H.R.1627 - Honoring America's Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012 was the first piece of legislation specifically designed to improve the living conditions of all those affected in the following ways:

  • Homeless matters;
  • Education matters;
  • Healthcare matters;
  • Housing matters;
  • Retroactive benefits;
  • Memorial, burial, and cemetery benefits; and,
  • Other business-related benefits.

Before the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2021

 

The second piece of legislation, H.R.2192 - Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2021, is a bill which stated that affected individuals could sue and recover damages from the federal government for harmful exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987.

The second bill specifically prohibited the federal government from asserting immunity and protection from litigation in response to lawsuits filed by veterans, survivors, and families.

The USA Veteran Legal Network believes that victims, survivors, and families of the toxic poisonings from Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina should be allowed compensation and justice as outlined in both H.R.1627 - Honoring America's Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012 and H.R.2192 - Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2021.
