What is a Federal Tort Claims Act Case?

If a medical provider hurts you due to inadequate medical care, then you would probably want to file an injury claim in civil court right away. However, if that medical provider was a member of or worked for the U.S. Armed Forces, VA hospital, or other federal hospital, then you can’t use the typical methods of seeking compensation. You will have to use a Standard Form 95 to start an administrative claim to request compensation based on the “sum certain” total of your losses.

Our California military medical malpractice lawyers from National Trial Law are closely familiar with the specialized processes of these case types. Depend on our highly experienced and knowledgeable team, especially when your case involves such unique requirements. 

Four steps to an average FTCA military medical malpractice claim in California are:

  1. Collecting your medical records and related documents to track how the injury happened and how much it has cost you in medical expenses.
  2. Writing a daily journal to detail your symptoms and conditions caused by the injury or illness, so we can detail how your life has changed due to military medical malpractice.
  3. Sending a Standard Form 95 within the two-year statute of limitations on FTCA claims. We can fill out and file this form for you if you’re our client.
  4. Negotiating a settlement to reach a fair sum certain total. If no fair settlement offer is provided by the federal government, then we can discuss the steps needed to file an FTCA lawsuit in federal court. This lawsuit must be started within six months of when your original FTCA claim was denied.

FTCA Claims for Military Veterans

Are you a military veteran and were hurt by the medical mistakes of a doctor at a VA hospital or clinic? You have the right to use an FTCA claim to pursue justice and compensation. The FTCA allows current military service members, reservists, veterans, and their families to file claims for military medical malpractice.

Compensation in Your FTCA Case

The compensation owed to you after being injured by VA or military medical malpractice could vary, depending on the specifics of your case. Overall, the FTCA will consider the potential compensation similarly to how a medical malpractice case would be handled in state civil court. However, as mentioned, the damages must be calculated and reported as the “sum certain” total in the Form 95. This amount can be calculated by our attorneys for you, so you don’t have to worry about the math that goes into determining economic and non-economic losses. 

Damages in an FTCA case can include the following and more:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical impairment

No damages cap is placed on these cases by the FTCA, but any state law damage caps that apply in California will apply to your case. Also, the FTCA limits attorney fees to no more than 25% of the recovered damages, which makes our highly experienced counsel highly affordable.
