Baton Rouge Camp Lejeune Lawsuit Lawyers
Exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune’s military base led to the illnesses of thousands of innocent individuals from 1953 to 1987. Unknown to these individuals, the contamination eventually caused various types of cancers, birth defects, and other debilitating medical conditions. To combat this injustice, the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 was enacted, providing damages to those who lived, worked, or were stationed at the base during that time. This Act now gives affected military members, civilians, and their families the ability to pursue injury claims through the legal system.

Will I need to pay any money upfront to get my personal injury started?
No, you will not need any money to get your case started or to initially meet with an attorney. We handle most cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not get paid unless you recover money.
What is a deposition?
A deposition is a statement given under oath, usually done in a lawyer’s office before a court reporter. Witnesses called to testify in a deposition answer questions posed by attorneys representing both parties in a case. The court reporter produces a written transcript of everything said at the deposition and the witness can read and sign the transcript, swearing it to be an accurate rendition of the testimony given under oath.
What documents should I bring with me when I meet with a lawyer?
The more information you are able to gather for your attorney, the easier it will be for your attorney to determine whether your claim will be successful. You should supply any documents that might have a bearing on your case, including, but not limited to, collision reports, photographs and medical records. If you have not collected any documents, do not worry because your lawyer will be able to obtain them.
