Can veterans with Camp Lejeune VA disability
benefits still file a law suit?
Yes! Veterans who receive VA disability benefits for Camp Lejeune-associated disabilities can still file a Camp Lejeune lawsuit.
Winning a Camp Lejeune lawsuit will not affect your monthly VA disability payments. However, your VA benefits may affect your Camp Lejeune lawsuit payout. For example, the lawsuit settlement amount may be offset by any VA payments you have already received from the VA for the same Camp Lejeune disability(s).
