Yes, a medical malpractice lawsuit may be filed against a Michigan military hospital by a veteran if they suffer injury or harm due to the negligence or error of the hospital or its staff. If death resulted due to an error or malpractice at the hospital, the family of the deceased veteran may also have the legal right to file a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
