Our medical malpractice lawyers represent military veterans in lawsuits against Veteran Administration Hospitals throughout the State of Michigan. The lawsuits are for all types of medical negligence that occur at VA Hospitals or by physicians and nurses at those 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, we pursue a wrongful death lawsuit for the surviving family members.
