Tripler Army Medical Center

For example, Tripler Army Medical Center provides a range of obstetrical and maternity care services for expecting mothers and their families. This includes prenatal care, labor and delivery services, and neonatal care. Types of negligence that may occur include: failure of medical providers to diagnose medical conditions affecting the mother or fetus, such as gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, or fetal distress, inadequate monitoring of the fetus, including failure to perform necessary tests or interpret test results correctly, or negligent management of labor, including failure to identify and address complications such as umbilical cord prolapse, placental abruption, or uterine rupture.
National Trial Law has decades of experience representing new mothers and their babies, who have been injured due to negligence before, during, and after delivery, including at facilities like Tripler Army Medical Center that have a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Administrative Claims Against the U.S. Military
Filing a lawsuit against the U.S. government is difficult, particularly in a situation involving military medical malpractice. If you want to file a Hawaii military medical malpractice claim, then you must first fill out an administrative claim and follow the rules of the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) to see if a settlement can be reached administratively.
Under the FTCA, steps to file a military medical malpractice claim in Hawai’i include:
- Collect medical records related to all medical treatments that occurred at the military base or hospital in question. If there are any medical bills, you should also obtain billing records that show the financial cost of those treatments and any estimates for necessary future medical care.
- Make notes about how much your life has changed due to the extent of your injuries or illness. This is helpful for our attorneys to understand your past damages and also what care you may need in the future. We can determine if medical malpractice occurred, how to proceed if it did, and how much compensation you are owed.
- Present a Standard Form 95 with our help and file it before the statute of limitations expires. The FTCA has a two-year statute of limitations. But your claim may have other deadlines as well. Talk to us as soon as possible to make sure that this statute of limitations does not expire before you get a chance to act.
- If your claim is denied or we cannot negotiate a settlement for you administratively, then we can discuss whether and how to file a Federal Tort Claims lawsuit in federal court. This must be done within six months of the denial of your administrative claim, or you could lose your right to recover any damages.

How Our Attorneys Can Help
Our Hawaii military medical malpractice lawyers are here to walk you through every step of this process, as well as represent you whenever needed. You can trust us with the most complicated of cases, so you don’t have to stress out about legal details. Also, the FTCA limits attorney fees to no more than 25% of any settlement or judgment recovered on your behalf, so you never need to worry about how to afford our high-quality legal services. You do not pay anything out of pocket to our attorneys unless we recover money for you.
You can depend on us for all sorts of legal support, such as:
- Drafting the Form 95: Presenting an administrative claim with a Form 95 is a precursor to filing a formal lawsuit against the government. Our experienced attorneys will know how to properly draft this document, which is a requirement under the Federal Tort Claims Act.
- Responding to inquiries: We can handle the back-and-forth communication between you and the government and their lawyers. We can provide updates on the case and answer any questions you may have.
- Negotiating a settlement: Depending on the situation, we may recommend seeking a settlement instead of moving forward with a formal lawsuit. We can handle the negotiations with the government's lawyers to pursue a fair settlement amount.
- Preparing a lawsuit if needed: If a settlement cannot be reached, we can build a strong lawsuit on your behalf. This can include gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and preparing documents for court.
- Providing emotional support: Dealing with the aftermath of military medical malpractice can be stressful and emotionally draining. We can provide support and guidance throughout the process, helping to ease your burden in this confusing time.
