Agenda:

Welcome by Co-Chairs

Between 1953-1987, people living or working at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, were exposed to contaminated water that has caused death, illness, and life-altering health conditions. What's worse, senior military leaders knew of the risks and concealed knowledge of the problem. For the past several decades, the veterans and families that resided or worked at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina have been denied justice. Ed Bell has spent thousands of hours and millions of dollars on efforts to pass a bill the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, a bill that allows our veterans and their families to recover for injuries as a result of the water contamination. During this webinar, you will learn about our strategy for the Camp Lejeune Water Contamination litigation. The speakers at this webinar will walk you through the nuances of the Camp Lejeune Justice act and how it will apply to litigation. We will also advise on how to move your Camp Lejeune cases forward efficiently.
