Military Bases in Kentucky
In Kentucky, the U.S. Department of the Army is the only branch of the Armed Forces with established military bases. Our lawyers are familiar with how the U.S. Army responds to military medical malpractice cases and Federal Tort Claims. If you were hurt due to medical malpractice at one of Kentucky’s Army bases, then we would like to hear from you as soon as possible.
The three U.S. Army bases in Kentucky are:
- Fort Campbell Army Base in Hopkinsville
- Fort Knox Army Base in Hardin
- Blue Grass Army Depot Base in Richmond
In recent years, the U.S. Department of the Army has had a swath of complaints and lawsuits filed against it for military medical malpractice. If you were harmed by a medical error on an Army base in Kentucky, then it is the right time to speak up and see if you can be compensated for your losses. Claims against the federal government usually have a very brief statute of limitations, so dial (833) 913-1885 without delay.
Suing the U.S. Military
Bringing a claim for negligence against the U.S. Armed Forces or another federal branch of the government in Kentucky is complicated. You will not be able to bring a traditional lawsuit right away, as you might if you were injured by any other party. Instead, you will need to start with a Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) case, which our military medical malpractice lawyers can handle from start to finish.
Under the FTCA, to file a military medical malpractice claim in Kentucky, these steps must be taken:
- Collect medical records and medical bill statements related to the treatment that went wrong or otherwise involved medical malpractice.
- Create a journal to detail the symptoms and hardships that you endure on a day-to-day basis, which can make it simpler for our attorneys to detail and calculate the damages owed to you.
- Complete and file a Standard Form 95 before the FTCA two-year statute of limitations ends. Form 95 is essentially an administrative method to request compensation for your losses, similar to a claim or lawsuit.
- If no settlement is negotiated or the Form 95 is denied, then the next step will be to consider filing a Federal Tort Claims lawsuit in federal court. There is a shorter six-month statute of limitations to take this step, though.
