While our veterans deserve quality care, this is not always what they get. Unfortunately, many of our Veterans Administration hospitals are in poor conditions and even provide substandard care. If you or a loved one suffered a bad outcome from medical treatment at a VA hospital, you may have a civil claim.
Our Veterans Deserve Better Care: Advocating for Victims of VA Malpractice
Since VA hospitals are owned and operated by the federal government, there are special considerations must be taken into account. Claims against the federal government must be brought against the United States in federal court, according to the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). The FTCA allows private citizens to bring civil lawsuits against the government, due to a waiver of sovereign immunity.
At Weisfuse & Weisfuse, LLP, we have more than 30 years of experience pursuing claims against the federal government. We understand the nuances of the law and will aggressively represent you to help you obtain full and fail compensation for your injuries.
