Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice /legal service you should contact a local attorney.
Unfortunately, once a person enlists into the US Army, the person waives any legal right to pursue any claim for injuries sustained during training or military service and the only option is to be either medically discharged or to be declared disabled by the military, which would entitle the military person to collect military disability pay while recovering from the injuries (unless the injuries make the person permanently disables).
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
Thank you for your follow up.
Unfortunately, there is generally no other option, other than to have another medical evaluation to determine if the enlisted injured soldier is not fit for duty and can obtain medical discharge.
I wish you the best of luck!
