The Military Subcommittee of SCWLA is excited to offer a One-Hour CLE for the May 5 luncheon with a variety of topics in addition to providing take-home examples for use in your practice. The topics of the CLE offered during the luncheon include:  The Federal Government’s right to recover under the Federal Medical Care Recovery Act and the implications in personal injury practice, family law, deposing a government official, requesting medical records from government medical treatment facilities, and the Military Justice system.

She handles all tort claims filed against the Department of the Army within the state of South Carolina. Ms. Fleck will discuss the applicable statutes and procedures for deposing government officials, specifically DoD medical providers, and the implications of The Privacy Act in requesting medical records from government medical treatment facilities.

Abigail Ferrick- Ms. Ferrick has worked at Fort Jackson in Affirmative Claims for over 20 years. Ms. Ferrick makes an average of 800 assertions on behalf of the United States each year against third party tortfeasors to recover the reasonable value of medical care and treatment rendered by the United States to military personnel and their family members. Ms. Ferrick will discuss the differences between the United States’ claim and typical liens.

CPT Tyler Fleck- CPT Fleck is a trial counsel (prosecutor) in Military Justice at Fort Jackson. CPT Fleck has served in the Army as a Judge Advocate for three years.
