Average Value of Camp Lejeune Infertility Case


Average Value of Camp Lejeune Infertility Case lawyer attorney sue compensation lawsuit

From August 1, 1953 to December 31, 1987, over one million service members, contractors, and their loved ones were harmed by the contaminated water supply at Camp Lejeune military base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Many of these people were diagnosed with serious medical conditions, including female infertility. These victims were ignored for many years by the U.S. military, which went through great lengths to deny claims of water contamination at Camp Lejeune.

Then, on August 10, 2022, President Biden signed into law The Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act, also known as the PACT Act. This legislation includes the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which allows anyone who stayed at Camp Lejeune for 30 days or more during 1953 to 1987, and developed female infertility from exposure to contaminated water, to file a lawsuit against the federal government.

Based on the number of calls we’ve been getting, it’s clear that people have many questions regarding their legal rights. In particular, people are curious to know how much they can receive from a Camp Lejeune female infertility lawsuit. Our lawyers are here to advise you and take action on a claim to recover your damages. Please give us a call and schedule a free case evaluation.

What does it mean to have Female Infertility?

Female infertility is a medical condition used to describe a woman’s inability to conceive. A woman can also be diagnosed with infertility if she is unable to bring a baby to term, meaning she has miscarried multiple times. Before you are diagnosed with infertility, you must have been trying to conceive for at least a year if you are 35 years old or younger. If you are older than 35, you must have been actively trying for at least 6 months before you are considered infertile.

There are medications and treatments that may work for some women, such as artificial insemination and in-vitro fertilization (IVF). But the success rates are not particularly high with these treatments, and they are generally not covered by insurance plans. As a result, the financial and emotional burden of female infertility can be challenging to live with.

How is Infertility caused by Water Contamination at Camp Lejeune?

During the period of contamination, the water supply at Camp Lejeune contained several toxic substances, which have been identified as tetrachloroethylene (PCE or PERC), trichloroethylene (TCE), vinyl chloride, and benzene. Many sources can be blamed for these chemicals, including improper disposing of industrial waste and leaking fuel tanks. The military could have taken steps to prevent the contamination, but they chose to do nothing to protect residents and workers at Camp Lejeune.

One of the devastating conditions resulting from the military’s negligence is female infertility. There are studies showing a strong link between infertility and long-term exposure to chemicals such as vinyl chloride, PCE / PERC, and benzene. Thus, if you were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, you may be entitled to compensation from the U.S. government.

Your Eligibility for a Camp Lejeune Infertility Diagnosis Lawsuit

Please note that the Camp Lejeune recovery process is open to anyone who developed a qualifying medical condition, such as infertility, from living or working at the base from August 1, 1953, to December 31, 1987 for at least 30 days. You do not need to have served in the military, but if you did, you must not have received a dishonorable discharge, which will make you ineligible for a Camp Lejeune injury claim.

Your right to sue is effective as of August 10, 2022, which is the signing date of the PACT Act. The damages you can recover from one of these lawsuits include:

  • Medical expenses
  • VA disability payments
  • Cost of counseling / mental health services
  • Lost wages / earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering

These forms of compensation determine the overall value of your Camp Lejeune water contamination case, which we will discuss in the next section.

What is the Average Value of a Camp Lejeune Infertility Lawsuit?

Female infertility is an intensely personal struggle, and the health complications, financial costs, and emotional distress vary greatly from victim to victim. Thus, it’s hard to say what the average patient will receive from a Camp Lejeune infertility diagnosis lawsuit. However, we can say from experience that settlements of $150,000 to $300,000 are within reason for many of these cases. If the claimant suffered serious health issues, like multiple miscarriages or other injuries / diseases from exposure to contaminated water, the total amount of compensation may be $1 million or more.

It’s important to remember that these are estimates, and that the value of your own case can only be determined by an experienced attorney. For more information on the amount you can recover from a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit, schedule a free case review with one of our attorneys.

How long will it take to Settle my Case?

Next to case value, this is the question we get most frequently from people who are interested in filing a Camp Lejeune lawsuit. At DTLA Law Group, it’s our priority to bring you your payment as soon as possible, which in the context of a personal injury lawsuit, is around 4 to 8 months. But there are many obstacles we can’t anticipate, and even minor issues can add weeks or months to the overall time you will need to wait. This is particularly relevant with Camp Lejeune cases, where the federal government will be dealing with a huge number of claims. Realistically, it’s possible that the process of settling your case may take 12 to 18 months. For the most complex, high-value cases, the settlement process may take 2 or more years.

How much time do I have to File a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?

All Camp Lejeune lawsuits must be filed within two years from August 10, 2022 (when the PACT Act was signed by President Biden). Thus, you have up until August 10, 2024 to file your lawsuit with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. The courts are unlikely to give you extra time if you miss the two-year statute of limitations, so please contact us to get started on a Camp Lejeune injury claim.
