Can I Sue the VA for Medical Malpractice?
Yes, you can sue the VA for medical malpractice. 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.
However, it is not easy, and you should speak with an experienced VA medical malpractice attorney in Johnson City before attempting to bring a claim on your own. If you are suing the VA for medical malpractice, consulting an experienced VA medical malpractice lawyer is essential in order to navigate the hurdles.

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.
