The Honoring our PACT Act of 2022

The repercussions and adverse health effects of the conditions at North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune have been well researched and documented, but recourse for those impacted by the conditions has largely remained unavailable. As a result, Congress passed the Honoring our PACT Act of 2022 (H.R. 3967), which offers a path to justice for those affected by the toxic water and the resulting injuries and harms the VA traditionally declined to cover.

To be eligible for recovery, the law requires that you spent at least 30 days on the base between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, and believe you were impacted by the chemicals. If you meet those requirements, this recently enacted law means our dedicated attorneys are ready to make a claim on your behalf.
