Representing Victims Who Have Suffered Injuries At Military Installations

If You Are A Civilian

Training and preparing for tactical maneuvers can create many dangerous conditions on a military base. In addition to active duty personnel, any civilians on the base may be put in harm’s way. If you’ve suffered a personal injury related to a car or motor vehicle accident or another catastrophic injury while you were on a military base, you may be able to file a claim under the Federal Tort Claims Act.

If You Are On Active Military Duty

The Feres doctrine states that active military members cannot sue their government. A circuit court recently rejected that theory, however, leaving the Feres doctrine of questionable validity. Call a McKeen & Associates, P.C., lawyer at 313-524-8570 or contact us online to discuss your situation.

Mothers Giving Birth On Base

If you gave birth at a military base and something went wrong resulting in a birth injury, as the baby’s mother, you can file a claim. This assumes the mother was on active military duty at the time. The baby would not fall under the Feres doctrine.
