Hero Soldier Wins Fight Against Military Medical Negligence

SiebenCareyMarch 12, 2020

FlagMedicineSM.jpgThe Feres Doctrine is a little-known Supreme court judgement handed down in 1950 that has caused suffering for thousands of service members and their families. Intended to protect medics for mistakes made during combat, the ruling has since been applied to injuries suffered by all active-duty personnel, whether on or off the battlefield. Thus, for example, when a medical procedure goes horribly wrong at a stateside military hospital because of gross negligence, the soldier-patient has no legal recourse.

  • A provision to the Department of Defense spending bill has been passed to allocate funds to compensate military members who suffer from medical malpractice
  • Military members still cannot sue military healthcare providers in the case of medical malpractice
  • Military members cannot sue or receive compensation in the case of sexual assault, workplace violence and more

My husband had an amazing experience with this firm. They listened and took the time to understand our case.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

2 years ago I went through a traumatic personal injury while I was in college. Through all of the chaos that was happening in my life as a result of this event, I cannot thank my father enough for referring me to SiebenCarey Personal Injury Law. Through a long and complicated process, I spent little time worrying about the legal battle when I had personal battles to fight on my own in addition to finishing my senior year. For that, I am eternally grateful to have had Jim Carey by my side to give clear and thoughtful advice for how to maneuver the legal challenges that my personal injury case faced. Thank you, Jim. If there was a silver lining that came out of a horrific experience, it was having the opportunity of working with you. You are tenacious, fair, and always willing to go the harder path to make sure your clients are well represented.
