What Is The  Lejeune Justice Act? 
The Lejeune Justice Act is a second chance.  Several years ago, the Federal Court ruled that too much time had passed and claims related to water contamination at Camp Lejeune were barred by North Carolina's "statute of repose".  The poor legal outcome devastated thousands of veterans and their families who got sick from contaminated water at Camp Lejeune.  Now, Congress has passed the Lejeune Justice Act which revives the claims and offers victims a second chance to get justice.  However, the Act only provides a two-year window for new claims.  Victims should act quickly.  If you, or someone you know, fell victim to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune, take action now.  Common injuries from contaminated water include cancers, birth defects, miscarriages, neurological damage, and other injuries.  The experienced lawyers at Bauer & Metro will evaluate your case and tell you whether you qualify for compensation.   
Who Qualifies for Compensation?
Poisoned military veterans, their families, civilians, workers and anyone who lived or worked at Camp Lejeune can file a claim.  Anyone who suffered from one of the "presumptive" conditions due to exposure can seek compensation and the government cannot claim immunity.  Deceased individuals, regardless of how long they passed away, also qualify for a claim through their family if the death was related to contaminated water.  Some of the illnesses known to be caused by the contamination include:
                 Breast Cancer
                Prostate Cancer

​                  Colon Cancer
                 Bladder Cancer
               Pancreatic Cancer
                    Liver Cancer
              Parkinson Disease
              Multiple Myeloma

​                     Leukemia
                 Kidney Disease
Why Choose Bauer & Metro? 
Simple:  Bauer & Metro has been fighting for military veterans and their families for years.  Our unique experience litigating military-related claims is second to none in the Lowcountry.  First, we filed a Class Action in South Carolina alleging severe housing defects at the Laurel Bay housing area at Marine Corps Air Station- Beaufort.  Our clients included parents of children who were sick with cancer.  Bauer & Metro battled a large, corporate military housing company and won justice for our local heroes.  In the process, we gained invaluable knowledge and experience related to this complex area of law.  Next, Rob Metro filed a class action related to defective military housing at Fort Bragg on behalf of thousands of tenants who lived in slum-like conditions.  Now, the fight continues for the victims from Camp Lejeune.  

For us, there is no greater professional satisfaction than helping military veterans and their families.
