The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) allows servicemen, military dependents, and other non-active duty victims of negligence to sue government agencies in federal court for injury committed by military doctors and other health care providers acting on behalf of the United States. Many of these lawsuits are filed against veterans administration hospitals for medical malpractice claims and wrongful death lawsuits.
Filing A Federal Government Medical Malpractice
There are strict procedural requirements for filing a military medical malpractice case under the Federal Tort Claim Act (FTCA). These include submitting necessary forms and filing claims even before a lawsuit can be filed. The failure to comply with these requirements can result in a valid lawsuit being barred for technical reasons alone. As such, it is important to contact a Federal Tort Claim Act lawyer as soon as possible to preserve your legal rights.

There are several Veterans Administration Hospitals in Michigan. These include:
- John Dingell Veterans Administration Hospital, Detroit, MI
