How We Help: Litigation Against the VA
Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals and clinics are supposed to help military veterans in need of care, but veterans can receive misdiagnoses (or failures to diagnose), inadequate treatment, inordinate delays, and malpractice at the hands of negligent VA medical personnel.
Veterans (and their families) are entitled to pursue medical malpractice claims against the VA under the Federal Tort Claims Act, which governs much of the process. However, the VA often denies and/or disputes claims for rightful compensation. This is where experienced legal help can help: you want to be sure the numerous administrative requirements required are followed to the letter, that the government understands that you have legal representatives who know how to navigate the FTCA and claims process, and pursue litigation through trial, if necessary.
