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.

Filing A VA Great Lakes Health Care System Medical Malpractice Claim
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. 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.
