Our Veterans Deserve Better Care: Helping Victims of VA Malpractice
While our veterans deserve quality care, this is not always the case. Unfortunately, many of our VA (Veteran's Administration) hospitals are in poor conditions and even provide substandard care. If you or a loved one suffered bad outcome from medical treatment at a VA hospital, you may have a civil claim.
More Than 30 Years of Medical Malpractice Experience
Since VA hospitals are owned and operated by the federal government, there are special considerations to make. Claims against the federal government must be brought against the United States in federal court pursuant to the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). The FTCA basically allows private citizens to bring civil lawsuits against the government, due to a waiver of sovereign immunity.
Before a lawsuit can be started a claim must be filed in a timely manner with the VA. We can help you present your medical malpractice claim against a VA hospital. The agency will then investigate your claim and attempt to resolve your matter. Our New York VA hospital accidents lawyers will aggressively represent you and make sure you receive full and fair compensation for your injuries.
