Can I Sue the Air Force for Medical Malpractice?

If you have been injured at a military hospital or clinic you may be able to file an FTCA claim against the U.S. Government. United States law allows victims of army medical malpractice or negligence potential recourse through the Federal Tort Claims Act. The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) provides an administrative route that must be satisfied before the filing of a lawsuit. If you or someone you know was injured at a military or Air Force hospital you should contact a Federal Tort Claims Lawyer right away to learn about what options you may have.

FTCA medical malpractice claims have a different process than normal tort cases. Claimants must first exhaust all administrative remedies before filing a lawsuit. All claimants must first present their claim to the correct agency of the U.S. Government within the statute of limitations.

There are many pitfalls under the Federal Tort Claims Act. One of the most common things that we do see at this firm is when clients file their own claim forms and they’ve done it improperly or they haven’t done it in a thorough enough manner. That causes problems and can even ruin a case.

As a matter of fact, we even see attorneys that have handled Federal Tort Claims Act claims improperly. It’s not uncommon, and it’s important that you have your case evaluated by someone who knows what they’re doing under the Federal Tort Claims Act.
