Why a Veterans Medical Malpractice Lawyer?

The Veterans Care Controversy – History and Statistics

In recent years the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has been under scrutiny, namely for preventable veteran deaths, infectious disease outbreaks, VA employee bonuses and mismanagement.

Since 2003, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the agency that provides services for over 22 million American veterans, has paid out approximately $100 million a year to settle more than 3,000 Veterans medical malpractice claims. In 2013, the agency tended to 5.6 million veterans, a 32 percent increase from 2002.

As of mid-2014, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has spent more than $50 million on medical malpractice claims, according to an analysis of Treasury Department records. In the ten years after 9/11, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs paid $200 million to nearly 1,000 families in wrongful death cases.

A recent report found that more than 1,000 veterans may have died in the last decade because of medical malpractice or lack of care from the Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers.  The VA has admitted that 23 patients have died because of delayed care, but “Friendly Fire: Death, Delay, and Dismay at the VA” shows many more patient deaths have been linked to improper management, decisions, and care.

Veterans Lawsuits – Rules and Regulations

Veterans injured by medical malpractice in VA hospitals may sue the U.S. government under a federal law called the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). The rules and regulations for filing a FTCA claim can be complicated. The process of filing a veteran negligence,  malpractice claim, or wrongful death claim begins by making an administrative claim against the FTCA. It is important at this stage to know the full extent of the damages because federal law will prohibit you from seeking more than the amount you state on your initial claim. FOX LAW will work with you to help you determine the full amount of the damages so you are not left with less than you need. Once you file your claim, there is a six month period in which the Veterans Administration can review your claim and decide to accept or reject it. If they reject your claim, you may file a medical malpractice lawsuit in federal court.  John Fox is a seasoned litigator, well versed in the rules and procedures of federal court. We are prepared to help you obtain full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.

What is the Fox Law Strategy?

“The Fox Law Strategy is to thoroughly prepare each case for trial from the beginning. Although most cases do settle before trial, cases that are thoroughly prepared for trial from the start have the strongest negotiating leverage and result in the best settlements.  It is important that you choose a lawyer who is prepared to take your case to trial. Some injury lawyers have no intention of going to trial. Their strategy from the beginning is to settle the case.  This weakens their negotiating leverage. Choosing a lawyer who will thoroughly prepare your case for trial from the beginning strengthens your negotiating leverage.” ~John Fox, Veterans Medical Malpractice Lawyer
