Austin Attorneys For Army, Air Force And Navy Hospital Negligence
Negligence in a military or VA hospital results in the same type of injuries as medical malpractice cases related to private entities. The difference lies in how the claim is pursued: rather than simply taking on the at-fault party’s insurance company, the claimant is forced into an administrative review process with the government agency that caused the injury. This is called a Federal Tort Claim.
Federal Tort Claims can be filed for injuries caused by military medical negligence related to:
- Inaccurate or poorly evaluated medical records
- Anesthesia errors
- Nursing and staffing errors
- Prescription and medication errors
- Post-operation and treatment errors
- Failure to administer treatment
In some cases, fatal injuries occur and wrongful death claims must be made. Make sure you do not put your claim at risk by navigating the complexities of Federal Tort Claims alone. Work with our lawyers who understand how to be successful in these cases.
