“Can I Sue The VA For Medical Malpractice?”
Contact Our Dedicated VA Medical Malpractice Lawyers Today
The short answer is “yes.” However, it is not easy. And you
should speak with an experienced VA Medical Malpractice Attorney before
attempting to bring a claim on your own. Most Malpractice Claims are initiated
using a Standard Form 95 Claim. If there is a valid basis for your claim,
it can proceed under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), wherein the VA
can be held liable to the same extent as a private practitioner in the
State in which the malpractice occurred.
Things get pretty complicated quickly when one attempts to apply Tennessee’s
laws for initiating malpractice lawsuits through a notice letter while,
at the same time, adhering to the requirements for initiating the claim
under FTCA. On top of this, the limitation periods for initiating lawsuits
differ between Tennessee State law and the limitation provisions applicable
to suits against the VA.
Consulting an experienced Veteran’s Administration malpractice attorney
is essential in order to navigate these hurdles.
