Veterans Administration Medical Center Malpractice

The Veterans Health Administration provides lifesaving healthcare services to millions of American veterans each year. Unfortunately, sometimes medical errors, misdiagnoses, or negligent treatment occur within VA facilities, harming veterans who sought care. If you or a veteran family member has been injured by improper VA medical care, you may be eligible to file a claim and seek compensation

About VA Medical Negligence 

VA facilities are required to meet the same standard of care as private sector hospitals and healthcare providers, but facilities do not always live up to this standard. Negligence such as improper diagnosis and treatment, surgical errors, mistakes with medication or other medical care, inadequate follow-up, and more can and do happen within VA facilities. 

When substandard healthcare, mistakes, or malpractice occurs, the veterans who sought treatment and care can suffer tremendously. The physical and emotional consequences of medical negligence can be severe and lifelong for patients. Beyond immediate pain and suffering, the veteran may contend with a long-term disability, loss of mobility or function, lower quality of life, and mounting medical bills.

By failing to uphold proper standards, the VA healthcare system fails the men and women who sacrifice for our country. Our veterans deserve better when seeking medical care. 

Potential Damages and Compensation 

The after-effects of medical error and negligent VA care can include serious injuries, permanent disability, or death. Compensation can cover hefty medical bills, lost income, funeral costs, and pain and suffering damages.

Because the United States Government runs VA healthcare facilities, and claims follow federal laws, damages are limited in some cases. Therefore, it's important to contact experienced attorneys in a timely fashion after something went wrong.
