We Handle All Types Of Medical Malpractice Cases
When you seek medical attention, you expect the medical provider to help you, not harm you. Unfortunately, medical mistakes happen, and victims and their families need to be aware of their options for obtaining compensation for the resulting costs.
Our medical malpractice lawyer handles all types of medical negligence cases for veterans, veterans’ spouses, and dependents of active-duty military personnel. We have the knowledge and resources to help maximize compensation for injuries or wrongful death resulting from any of the following:
- Errors before, during or after surgery, including bariatric surgical mistakes
- Diagnostic errors, including failure to diagnose heart disease and failure to diagnose cancer
- Medication errors, including wrong drug and wrong dosage
- Birth injuries, including injuries to child or mother
- Lack of informed consent, otherwise known as medical battery
Bringing A Claim Under The Federal Tort Claims Act
Patients at government-run hospitals and clinics are covered under the Federal Tort Claims Act or the Military Claims Act. These bodies of law allow people to sue the federal government when military or government doctors fail to provide the accepted standard of care, resulting in further injury or illness.
Filing a claim under the Federal Tort Claims Act requires knowledge of the procedures of the federal courts where such claims are heard. The requirements for filing a federal tort claim are different than the requirements for civilian personal injury claims. It is important to have an experienced, knowledgeable lawyer on your side to handle your FTCA claim and help you get the full amount of compensation available.
Our firm is a leader in FTCA claims, and we can help you file Standard Form 95 (SF95), which is the form used to initiate the process. We have extensive experience in these matters, and you can count on us to advise and represent you every step of the way.
