Lawyer for Multiple Myeloma Camp Lejeune Lawsuit
People who were stationed, lived or worked on the Marine Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina between the 1950s and February of 1985, may have been exposed to toxins in the water sources associated with that region. These toxins, hazards and chemicals may have promoted people living and working in this region to develop cancers such as multiple myeloma.
If you have been working or living on Camp Lejeune during the 1950s through to the mid-1980s, then you may have a claim to bring a legal action for you having developed multiple myeloma. This is a serious illness that you will be afflicted with for the foreseeable future, and most likely the rest of your life. If you have lived at Camp Lejeune during this time and are aware of being infected with multiple myeloma because of exposure to toxic waste, then you need to give our law firm a call right away.
What is Multiple Myeloma?
Multiple myeloma is characterized as a disease where there is a malignant growth of clonal plasma cells in the body. These cells are cancerous and will grow from other cells in what is called monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (or MGUS) and smoldering multiple myeloma (or called SMM). Simply put, if you have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma and you are given anti-myeloma T cell immunity therapy, you can work to control the disease. The problem with a diagnosis for multiple myeloma, is that many people with this disease are unable to control it, and they die as a result of receiving this diagnosis sooner than later.
Some individuals with multiple myeloma can also develop a condition called venous thromboembolism (VTE). If you have VTE then you might also need to use anticoagulation therapies to prevent VTE in your body.
What Are the Symptoms of Multiple Myeloma?
The symptoms of multiple myeloma are common symptoms that can mimic other non-cancerous conditions. The symptoms can be feelings that you have experienced many times in your body before, and been fine. But in this case, you are not fine if you are later diagnosed with multiple myeloma. You can expect to experience symptoms such as:
- Being thirsty
- Feeling numb in the legs
- Losing weight
- Getting too many other infections
- Feeling tired
- Feeling confusion in thoughts
- Losing your appetite
- Getting constipated
- Feeling nauseated
- Having pain in the spine or in the chest area of the body
Sometimes, these symptoms are just “aches and pains,” and people will tend to ignore them altogether. But if you have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, you may find that the diagnosis is often missed by some healthcare professionals. Once you do receive a diagnosis, the condition of multiple myeloma is permanent and there is currently no cure for this disease. That is why it is critical that you give us a call today, to get the recovery compensation that you will need to cover the care you will likely require for this condition for the rest of your life.

Average Case Value
All cases for multiple myeloma will be different, and handled on a specific case by case basis. Having said that, it can be noted that the average case value for a multiple myeloma case will be upwards of $1 million and upwards of that figure to several millions of dollars in a settlement. It is difficult to determine an early diagnosis at times. But if an early diagnosis is given, it may be possible to slow the progression of the disease with treatments.
Unfortunately, with a later diagnosis, missed or misdiagnosis for multiple myeloma, the person with this disease may not live more than a year or less with this disease, and often the individual will die after less than 12 to 24 months of being diagnosed with multiple myeloma disease.
How Long Does It Take to Settle and to Get Paid on These Cases?
Your case will take around a year to settle, assuming you have nearly finished all of your treatments for the multiple myeloma condition that you now have to manage for your healthcare program. If you have not finished therapies, physical therapy or any other necessary surgical conditions as a part of your medical treatment plan, then it will take a bit longer to settle out your case.
It is definitely better not to “rush” your settlement of your case for multiple myeloma. This is because you may need additional treatments to help manage your disease, and you will want those costs to be added to the full recovery compensation package that you will eventually receive at the end of the settlement process.

If you are interested to bring an action related to a claim for multiple myeloma from living at Camp Lejeune, then you need to file your case within the statute of limitations timeframe requirements. Therefore, the statute of limitations in California for personal injury lawsuit filing is two years.
