What to do if your parents served during the impacted Camp Lejeune years

Posted by Berry Law on June 27, 2022 in Camp Lejeune

Many Veterans and their families have been greatly affected by the toxic water contamination at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Thankfully, the Federal government is acting to provide much-needed judicial relief for these individuals. 

One question many family members have is, “What should I do if my parents were stationed at Camp Lejeune?” This blog will answer that question and provide steps on how to get help.

The first step to consider is whether or not your parent is eligible for relief. To be eligible, your mother or father must have served at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between August 1, 1953 and December 31, 1987. To clarify, this does include the Veteran, family members, and even children who were exposed in utero before birth. 

The second step is to encourage your parent to reach out to us for help! There are a couple of ways to do this. The first option is to call us directly at our toll-free number: (888) 473-4817. The second option is to go online and navigate to our website at We have a page dedicated solely to the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. There is a section for your parents to provide some basic information, such as name, phone number, and email address. Once submitted, your parents will be contacted by our firm for a free case evaluation. At that time, our staff members will be able to answer questions and guide your parents regarding next steps.  

The Camp Lejeune Justice Act is an important step in the right direction for providing our Veterans with relief after years of hardship.  We understand the suffering Veterans have endured because of exposure to toxic chemicals and encourage you to contact us today. Our team would be honored to fight for you and the compensation your family deserves.
