Veteran Administration Hospitals in the United States are subject to medical malpractice lawsuits for negligent medical care at those facilities. The Veteran Administration Hospital System is the largest medical system in the United States. Veterans seeking medical care at these hospitals should have the access to the best medical care available in America. When this quality of care is not provided and a veteran suffers injury due to medical mistakes at a VA Hospital, the patient can file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the United States of America.
The lawsuits are for all types of medical mistakes that occur at Veterans Administration Hospitals or by physicians and nurses at those VA hospitals, including surgery errors, medication mistakes, the failure to diagnose a medical condition, and other types of medical malpractice. In cases involving a death of a Veterans Hospital patient, the veteran’s surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit.
VA Hospital Medical Malpractice Claims
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.
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. A veteran who fails to file a claim under the specified requirement can have valid lawsuit barred from being pursued. As such, it is essential to contact an experienced Federal Tort Claim Act lawyer as soon as possible to preserve your legal rights.
