Can I sue the VA or Military for Medical Malpractice?

If you or a family member is a victim of medical malpractice that occurred at a VA or military hospital then you may be able to file a claim against the VA, Army, Navy, or Airforce. Claims against the Department of Veterans Affairs, Air Force, Navy, or Army can result from many different types of injuries and even wrongful death. Negligent medical care can arise in many different types of cases including serious personal injury, wrongful death, failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, and many other types of injuries. If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury as a result of the negligence by a federal employee at a Military hospital or clinic then your case may fall under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA).

There is little question that I would not have won my lawsuit against the VA without the assistance of the Archuleta Law Firm. Given the unethical practice of the VA lawyer my lawyer had to be fierce in negotiations and prevailed. I highly appreciate their efforts and recommend them to other Vets needing professional help.

I originally passed up Archuleta because I thought I would have better service from a local attorney. I have never been so wrong. The local attorney told me that they did not believe I would win my FTCA case. I called Archuleta, and their team was wonderful. Not only did they agressively take on and win my case, but they contacted me every step of the way.

I was afraid because I have never had to secure the help of an attorney, but this experience has totally changed my mind. I would truly recommend Archuleta to anyone.

Video Transcript

My name is Michael Archuleta and my passion is to handle Federal Tort Claims and specifically military and VA malpractice cases under the Federal Tort Claims Act. I’ve been doing this for over twenty-five years.

Some of my background that’s helpful in handling these cases is that I’m also a physician. Before I went to law school I completed medical school and I completed an internship and I’m a licensed physician, which makes me a medical doctor. That has been one of the most important things that I’ve done in my life and in my career.

I went to law school because I am passionate about helping people and their families when someone is injured or killed as a result of medical negligence. Later, I focused my practice on military and VA medical malpractice cases, because I have found that those families and those veterans and those military members are some of the best clients that a lawyer could ever have.

A primary misconception that we’ve heard clients say many times is that they were told that the government couldn’t be sued, or that the Army/Navy/Air Force/Department of Veterans Affairs could not be sued, because they were the federal government. That’s not true in all cases.

It’s really important for someone who has been injured by medical malpractice at a government facility, such as a military or VA facility, that they have their case evaluated to see whether or not there is an avenue for recovery for their case. Congress made the Federal Tort Claims Act specifically so citizens of this country, and other countries, who are injured by the federal government could bring claims against the federal government. It is a Congress-sanctioned activity. There is nothing wrong with having your claim evaluated, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with bringing a claim against a government agency.

I encourage you to act as expeditiously as you can when you think that there may be a potential case. It costs nothing, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a case evaluated.
