Foreign Claims Act

The Foreign Claims Act, 10 U.S.C. § 2734-2736 (1982) (FCA) provides for compensation to inhabitants of foreign countries for damage to property or for personal injury or death caused by “noncombat” activities of U.S. government or its Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen or Marines.

The scope of the FCA is broad, but only certain types of claims and certain classes of people may make a claim. U.S. Service members or their dependents, and U.S. Contractors are exempted from coverage and may not sue.

Foreign citizens and companies injured by the United States and its agents are permitted to make claims for damages.

Noncombat Activity

Noncombat activity is defined in Army Regulation 27-20 and excludes, combat or combat-related actions whether in time of war or not, or the use of military and or civilian personnel in connection with civil disturbances. The Naval regulation is more expansive than the Army regulation and permits payment for accidents or malfunctions of military aircraft or ordnance occurring while preparing for, going to or returning from combat missions.

The two former Judge Advocates at Cravens & Noll are prepared to illuminate this process for you and navigate your claim through the process and expedite your recovery.
