I'm a local Navy Officer and I was involved in a car wreck with another member of the Navy. I keep hearing that I might not be able to recover.Can you explain? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

What you’ve been hearing about is a doctrine known as the Feres doctrine. This doctrine often dictates that fellow service members cannot make claims against one another in the case of an automobile accident or even in the medical malpractice arena.  It is important that you contact an attorney who is familiar with the military and has been practicing in this area for a long time. That attorney will be able to give you the best advice regarding your particular situation.
