Top Michigan Injury Attorneys Helping Civilians And Active Military Personnel
Personal injuries can include many types of incidents. Whether it was a vehicle accident, a slip-and-fall, an injury obtained during a military drill gone wrong, or some other incident or wrongful death, the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) is there to provide a means of obtaining relief for victims.
While active duty military personnel have traditionally been barred from using the FTCA under the Feres doctrine, it should be noted that at least one circuit court has rejected the doctrine so the law may be open to interpretation.
If you have suffered an injury related to the military or the government, contact the attorneys of McKeen & Associates, P.C., by calling 313-524-8570 or contacting us online. We can help you determine if you might have a compensable claim and then go about helping you prove your claim and collect the compensation you deserve.
If You Are The Spouse Of An Active Duty Military Member
If you are the spouse of a member of the military on active duty, the Feres doctrine would generally not apply. Admittedly, this is a murky area of the law, and you would be best served by retaining a lawyer with a thorough understanding of the Federal Tort Claims Act, of military-related personal injury, and of the Feres doctrine. McKeen & Associates is a team of attorneys with just that experience.
