Department Of Veterans Affairs Lawsuits

Veterans injured by medical malpractice in VA hospitals may sue the U.S. government under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). The rules and regulations for filing a FTCA claim can be complicated and call for the assistance of an experienced attorney.

The process of filing a VA medical malpractice claim begins by making an administrative claim against the FTCA. It is important at this stage to know the full extent of the damages because federal law will prohibit you from seeking more than the amount you state on your initial claim. Our lawyers will work with you to help you determine the full amount of the damages so you are not left with less than you need.

Once you file your claim, there is a six-month period in which the Department of Veterans Affairs can review your claim and decide to accept or reject it. If it rejects your claim, you may file a medical malpractice lawsuit in federal court. Our firm features seasoned litigators who are well-versed in the rules and procedures of federal court. We are prepared to help you obtain full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.
