About Military and Armed Services Law
Since 1979, almost 30,000 active-duty military personnel in the Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force have died in non-combat situations, an average of nearly 5 deaths a day. The deaths occurred in activities ranging from off-duty incidents such as sickness, homicide and suicide, to training exercises and other peacetime missions. In 1998 an average of 55 soldiers out of every 100,000 died in non-combat related accidents.
While military duty in both combat and non-combat training situations is perilous, some commentators are alarmed at the number of military men and women who loose their lives in peacetime maneuvers.
If you or a loved one have been injured or killed in a military accident, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
