9-9-2022: IG Report: VA Mishandled LeJeune Water Contamination Cases
A recent report from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Office of Inspector General (IG) concludes that the VA mishandled more than one-third of all Camp Lejeune water contamination disability claims, possibly cheating as many as 21,000 veterans out of financial compensation. The IG report found that errors in claim effective dates and retroactive payments alone affected nearly 4,000 veterans and totaled about $14 million, but that accounts for only a small portion of the mistakes. Most of the errors impacting more than 17,000 veterans' cases when VA staff prematurely denied claims without requesting additional evidence of injury. The IG review of more than 57,000 Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, cases handled by VA staff between March 2017 and March 2021, however, the VA inspector general found that many cases not related to the established presumptive conditions were summarily rejected, instead of requesting more information on their conditions. The presumptive conditions were created by FRA-supported legislation that was signed into law in 2012.
This is Secretary Norm: if you were EVER turned down for a Camp Lejeune claim, refile it with one of the law firms advertising on TV.
