Help me understand the claims validation and settlement process

  • What criteria does the Department of the Navy use to evaluate claims filed under the CLJA?

    The Camp Lejeune Justice Act (CLJA) set out the eligibility requirements for an individual to recover damages as a result of exposure to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune during a specified time frame. In order to adjudicate a claim, the Department of the Navy must first determine if a claimant meets those eligibility requirements. This includes, but is not limited to, when and for how long a claimant may have been exposed to water at Camp Lejeune and what harm or injury, if any, the claimant sustained. In some circumstances, documentation may be requested to substantiate a CLJA claim, but such documentation is not required to submit an initial filing. Requests for substantiating documentation will be made, if needed to adjudicate the claim, by personnel assigned to adjudicate the claim. These requests will be sent to the claimant or his legal representative through a message generated by the Camp Lejeune Claims Management Portal.
