Are you a soldier? Did you get into an accident? With medical expenses fully covered, some soldiers don’t feel entitled to a Personal Injury claim after an accident. Vehicles belonging to soldiers can also be damaged. We at the Kanthaka Group are committed to advocating on behalf of those injured by another party’s negligence.
Quite often, it happens: active duty service members can suffer serious injuries in accidents that are unrelated to their military service. One of the main causes is car accidents. Other personal injuries include:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Dog injury
- Slip and fall
- Burns and explosions
- Brain injury
- Wrongful death
TRICARE and Car Accidents
TRICARE is the uniformed services health care program covering active duty service members, their families, retirees and their families, survivors, and certain former spouses. It is possible to get TRICARE coverage for medical expenses resulting from a car accident. In the event that TRICARE has covered costs for which it paid compensation, it has the right to demand repayment in full. As a result, hiring an experienced lawyer, who knows how to request reductions and, sometimes, waivers, is crucial. By doing this, you can keep a larger share of any settlement or jury verdict.
When the proper protocol is followed and the process is managed effectively, injury victims can often keep more of their compensation. Although the U.S. government provides TRICARE to its service members, when someone else causes your injury, you deserve compensation.
