A Salem, Ore., attorney has filed a lawsuit accusing USAA Insurance Co, which represents military members and their families, of fraudulently denying claims after car crashes.

The Salem Statesman Journal reports the suit, filed in Portland, accuses USAA Insurance Co. of using medical reports by physicians to say treatment for injuries suffered in the crash were not medical necessary.

The suit seeks unspecified damages.

USAA Insurance represents only members of the U.S. military or their families.

A USAA spokesman declined to comment on the lawsuit.
