The Military Claims Act
If you or your family member was injured by military medical malpractice abroad, your legal recourse is to file a claim under the Military Claims Act (MCA). The MCA is similar to the Federal Tort Claims Act with one important distinction: if the military denies your claim, you have no right to file a lawsuit. This is why it is important to hire a lawyer with the experience and skill to make sure your claim is handled appropriately and to help you get the compensation you deserve.
In addition to his more than 35 years of experience handling malpractice claims for veterans and service members in Texas and beyond, founding attorney Jeffrey C. Anderson was the commanding officer of a medic-training company at Fort Sam Houston. His medical background and his knowledge of the way military medicine works are great benefits to our military clients, particularly those who wish to file an MCA claim.
