VA Medical Malpractice Settlements

Veterans deserve to have their rights protected as fiercely as they have defended our freedom, especially when it comes to medical treatment. Unfortunately, due to the number of veterans needing treatment, veteran hospitals often lack the requirements, amenities, and manpower to address the needs of all their patients.

If you or a loved one has been seriously hurt as a result of negligence or improper care while under the care of a veteran medical facility or personnel, it is crucial that you seek help from Adams, Jordan & Herrington, P.C. right away. Unlike ordinary medical malpractice claims, VA medical malpractice is more complex. It can be a lengthy and difficult legal process that will require the representation of an experienced Veteran Affairs medical malpractice attorney. Fortunately, our firm has all the requirements you need to face this case with confidence.

Can I File a VA Medical Malpractice Claim?

The Federal Torts Claims Act allows you to file a lawsuit against any Veteran Affairs employees whose negligence caused your injury, whereas Section 1151 is limited to filing lawsuits against individuals involved in injuries caused by employees in the hospital, outpatient clinic, medical exam or surgery.

If you believe that you have grounds to pursue a medical malpractice claim against the VA employee who caused your injury, you will need to follow the below steps. Because this process can be complicated, it's important to have an experience personal injury lawyer on your side to guide you during the claims process.

Claim Process:

  • Fill out and file the Standard Form 95
  • Provide supporting documentation
  • Ensure that your claim explicitly states your injury, the negligence that caused the injury, and the sum of damages you would like to be compensated for (the sum of damages is particularly important because you can not be awarded more than the amount you ask for in your claim)

What Supporting Documentation Will I Need?

You may be required to submit the following documentation along with your claim:

  • Itemized medical expense bills
  • A statement from the physician who treated your injuries
  • Details about any future expenses you expect to incur as a result of your injury
  • Your VA medical exam report
  • Statements from your employer if you were required to take time off work

Seek professional legal help to ensure that you request the appropriate amount of compensation and provide all necessary documentation.
