What if the injury is caused by military contractors? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

You should be able to file a claim against a military contractor since your claims can be brought against an individual or company, but not against the federal government or military. For example, if Contractor X produced a weapon or a parachute that you used during active service and the weapon or parachute breaks due to faulty construction and you get injured, then there is a possible case for injury or wrongful death (as long as the claim is filed against the company, not the military, but there are still defense to these suits made by such companies).
