A Navy SEAL was killed in a parachuting accident during training last week. San Diego accident attorney Michael Steinger says that even in military accidents, victims and their families have rights.
Chief Special Warfare Operator Bradley Cavner had been a SEAL commando for nearly 10 years according to San Diego 6 News (retrieved 06.30.2014). He died during a training exercise in El Centro, although the Navy has not offered many details.
All military personnel accept a high level of risk, Steinger said, but when a death or injury is caused by an accident rather than enemy fire then they have legal protections like any other accident victim.
“I am 100% certain that the Navy does everything it can to keep its sailors safe during training,” said Steinger, founder of the Steinger, Iscoe & Greene law firm. “But fatal accidents don’t happen unless someone overlooks something big.”
Steinger says that the cause of an accident matters, not just to give the family closure but also to help with their legal options.
“Like any other on the job tragedy, the family of a service member is entitled to compensation,” he said. “That can never change what happened, but it can help the family with the financial burdens that come with the loss of a loved one.”
Cavner held a bronze star and numerous other medals from combat duty in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
