Can I Sue the Department of Veterans Affairs for Medical Malpractice?

If you or a family member is a victim of medical malpractice that occurred at a Veterans Affairs hospital or facility then you may be able to file a claim against the VA. Claims against the Department of Veterans Affairs 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 VA hospital or clinic then your case may fall under the Federal Tort Claims Act.

Should I file a claim against the VA myself?

It is usually better if you work with a specialized VA medical malpractice lawyer to present your administrative claim because there are many details of the law that a non-lawyer may not be aware of in presenting an administrative claim.

You can lose valuable time correcting mistakes, or may use up one of the two chances that you have to present a claim administratively. Your safest bet is to consult with a VA attorney experienced in handling FTCA cases and work with them to present the best administrative claim possible. Don’t delay because the more time your law firm has to review the file and prepare your claim before the statute of limitations expires, the better.

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.
