Veterans Medical Malpractice LawyerDo I need a Veterans Affairs Medical Malpractice Lawyer?

Veterans Medical Malpractice lawsuits require that you have sustained a serious injury as a result of the negligence of a VA doctor, VA nurse, or other VA medical professional employed by the Veterans Administration.

In general, a Serious Injury is an injury that requires more than a few months to recover. When a Veterans Medical Malpractice Lawyer accepts a VA Medical Malpractice claim, there is a tremendous amount of work and expense involved in pursuing your claim. Therefore, in general, Veterans Medical Malpractice Lawyers accept cases only if they believe the damages are worth the time and expense required to represent the claim.

Negligence occurs when the medical professionals’ actions fall below the standard of care. Determining negligence usually requires medical experts to review your records and render an opinion as to whether your medical care fell below the standard of care and may be considered medical malpractice. Therefore, in general, before a Veterans Medical Malpractice Lawyers will accept your case, they will have it reviewed by medical experts to determine if your injury is the result of medical negligence.

Veterans Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

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 federal veterans agency, which 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% increase from 2002.

As of mid-2014, the Department of Veterans Affairs has spent more than $50 million on medical malpractice claims, according to an analysis of Treasury Department records. In the 10 years after 9/11, the agency 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 VA 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.

An incident of endoscope contamination in a VA Hospital located in Buffalo, New York has caused emotional distress among veterans, as the contamination has put over 500 veterans at risk of infectious disease.

Veterans Affairs Medical Malpractice LawyerA Veterans Affairs Medical Malpractice Lawyer knows the 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 VA 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.

Veterans Medical Malpractice victims may be eligible for Section 1151 Veterans Benefits  and you may receive a VA disability rating the same as veterans receive with service related injuries. You may also be eligible for Total Disability Individual Unemployment Benefits if your Veterans Medical Malpractice injuries prevent you from working.

Section 1151 VA Disability Claims Eligibility Requirements

• You must be a United States Veteran.

The “FOX LAW Strategy”

It’s the FOX LAW Strategy to prepare each case for trial from the very start. Why do we do this? Because insurance companies know which lawyers are prepared to go to trial and which ones are only prepared to settle. Preparing your case for trial from the beginning strengthens our negotiating leverage and gives us the best opportunity for a good settlement.

All lawyers are not equal. Some injury lawyers have no strategy beyond settling your case. This weakens their negotiating leverage and their ability to get their clients the compensation they deserve.
