Civilians can make civil claims for Fort Campbell injuries

Thousands of service members -- along with their families -- live on military bases such as Fort Campbell in Tennessee. Such a community has similar activities as any other non-military community, and the same types of accidents occur. Fort Campbell injuries do not only affect service members. While service members may not sue the federal government if they suffer accident-related injuries, nonservice members can pursue recovery of damages sustained.

Nonservice members on Fort Campbell include some civilians, the dependents of active service members, reservists and retirees along with their families. As in any other community, people on the base suffer injuries in slip-and-fall accidents, car accidents involving federal vehicles and more. Non-military injured victims are treated at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital, along with those suffering other medical conditions.

Just like in civilian communities, injuries are often caused by the negligence of others, and lawsuits are filed to pursue financial compensation. However, for car accidents, premises liability, medical malpractice and other claims, the defendant for any such lawsuits on Fort Campbell will be the federal government. The prospect of taking on the government may prevent some injured victims from pursuing recovery.

Non-military victims who want to pursue claims for Fort Campbell injuries may feel more comfortable knowing that they need not go up against the federal government on their own. The attorneys at the Tennessee offices of Pete Olson Law can explain the complicated proceedings of pursuing such claims. With an impressive record of accomplishment of favorable outcomes, they will provide the necessary support and guidance every step of the way.
