Seeking Compensation Based on Your Fort Polk Accident Case
Many injuries that occur near Fort Polk involve members of the military, military vehicles, or government property. This can make pursuing damages in these cases more complex, although navigating the claims process and securing a payout is not impossible.
At Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, we know how this process works and often help clients seek recoverable damages in these cases. These damages could include:
- Medical treatment costs
- Lost income
- Property damages
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering losses
Active-Duty Personnel Can still Recover Medical Care Costs
While active-duty military generally receive medical care for any injuries for free, we can often still help you prove the at-fault party is responsible for your damages. Instead of using medical bills to document these losses, we can obtain documents from the military to show the value of treatment they provided you.
If you are a member of the armed forces and suffered injuries because of a civilian’s negligence or in an off-duty incident near Fort Polk, we will review your case for you for free. We may be able to help you pursue compensation based on your losses.
The Process May Vary to hold the Military Legally Liable
When a civilian suffers harm because of Army personnel, on government property, or in an accident with a military vehicle, the claims process works differently than in most personal injury claims.
The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) may apply. This federal law requires you to follow a specific process to file a claim and negotiate a settlement when the liable party is a government employee or agency. This process has its own deadlines, steps, and required paperwork.
You most likely do not want to try to file a claim against a branch of the military on your own. Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers team is here to help. Let us assess your legal options today for free.
