Car Accident While on Active Duty? Here’s What You Should Know.
If you were on active duty and were involved in a car accident, you may be eligible for compensation and disability benefits. However, recovering compensation or obtaining benefits is a complicated process. It is advisable to contact a personal injury attorney experienced with military injury claims.
One of the issues of being injured during active duty is finding military medical care. Permanent Change of Station (PCS) travel orders can make this complicated because relocations interrupt treatments. It involves finding a new provider and establishing a new routine for the treatment. It also complicates documentation, billing, and evidence if one wishes to pursue a military injury claim.
