Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawyers in North Carolina
Recently, you may have heard about the potential civil suits for people injured by contaminated water at the Camp LeJeune US Marine Corps base in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Although many lawyers across the country represent victims in this case, you will need a North Carolina lawyer to file a claim in the eastern district of North Carolina. This is because the cases will be resolved in applicable state courts or, in this situation, the state’s eastern district.
Auger & Auger: Your Local Mass Tort Law Firm
Auger & Auger was founded by managing partner and attorney Herbert Auger in 1994. His goals included establishing a service-oriented firm to provide exceptional assistance to clients, earning the respect of peers and the community, and giving back to the community and those in need. The firm soon grew to include five locations in North Carolina.
Providing quality legal representation to clients is always a priority at Auger & Auger, where we represent a wide variety of mass tort cases such as Xarelto, Round-up, WTC, IVC Filters, Hernia Mesh and Boy Scout Abuse. The Camp LeJeune case is based on evidence of contamination in the base’s water supply from the 1950s to the 1980s. For years, many veterans and others injured by this contaminated water have fought to get the compensation they deserve. In 2022, the Honoring Our Pact Act made this possible.
Taking Pride in Our Work
At Auger & Auger, we strive to meet our client’s needs and make every effort to return calls and emails promptly. We understand that being injured is a difficult and frustrating experience, and we want to do whatever we can to make things easier. Our attorneys and investigators will work tirelessly to build evidence in your case and fight to get you the settlement you deserve.
Giving Back to the Community
Our firm is proud of our philanthropic work, which includes supporting many local and national nonprofit organizations. In 2015, we established the Auger & Auger Disability Scholarship fund to help students with disabilities pursue their education. Twice a year, in the spring and fall semesters, we award a scholarship to a disabled student pursuing an undergraduate degree. To date, we’ve given scholarships to more than 14 students.
Auger & Auger also supports Carolina P.A.W.S., the Walk Like MADD 5K Fun Run to benefit MADD, Dream On 3, A Better World Charlotte, and the Wounded Warrior Project.
Are You Eligible for the Camp LeJeune MDL?
The Honoring Our Pact Act provides healthcare benefits, financial compensation, and disability compensation for people injured by the contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune. This includes veterans who served or were stationed there, family members who lived on the base with a service member, and civilians who were assigned to work on the base. If you lived or worked at the base for at least 30 days between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, and later developed cancer or other health problems or had a child with certain congenital disabilities, you may be able to seek compensation. To find out if you qualify, please contact Auger & Auger for a free consultation. As always, there is no fee until we settle your case.
