We Handle Claims Under The Federal Tort Claims Act
Patients at VA hospitals and clinics are covered under the Federal Tort Claims Act, commonly called the FTCA. This body of law allows you to sue the federal government if military or government doctors fail to provide the accepted standard of care, resulting in further injury or illness to you.
Filing a claim under the Federal Tort Claims Act requires specific knowledge of the procedures of the federal courts. The requirements for filing a federal tort claim are different the requirements for civilian personal injury or medical malpractice claims. It is therefore critical have to an experienced, knowledgeable lawyer on your side to handle your FTCA case. The first step is to file a Standard Form 95 (SF95), which we can help you do and avoid unnecessary setbacks.
