Blanchfield Army Community Hospital

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital, often abbreviated as BACH, is located in Fort Campbell, which is a United States Army installation located astride the Kentucky-Tennessee border between Hopkinsville, Kentucky, and Clarksville, Tennessee. BACH provides health services to active-duty soldiers, military retirees, and their families. BACH has departments for emergency care, primary care, surgical services, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, radiology, laboratory services, and mental health services among others. In terms of specialties, it has departments such as Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Women’s Health, Behavioral Health, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and more.

National Trial Law has represented numerous clients in medical malpractice cases arising out of Blanchfield ACH. For example, in one case, we negotiated a $2,150,000 settlement for the wrongful death of a woman after BACH providers failed to diagnose and treat colorectal cancer.

Federal Tort Claims Act Cases in TN

If you were hurt due to military malpractice, then seeking justice and fair compensation will not be as simple as filing a lawsuit against the military hospital or medical practitioner. Instead, you will need to use the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). With an FTCA military medical malpractice claim in Tennessee, our attorneys can try to reach a settlement administratively on your behalf.

Steps for an FTCA military medical malpractice claim usually include:

  1. Collecting medical records related to your injury or illness caused by a military medical hospital or clinic. Our attorneys would like to be able to review those records, as well as associated medical bills.
  2. Making notes about your overall health and wellness after the medical malpractice incident. A wellness journal is useful to track your symptoms and the day-to-day complications that you have experienced. Our lawyers can use this journal as a strong reference source when building your case.
  3. Completing and filing a Standard Form 95 before the FTCA two-year statute of limitations expires. If we are representing you, then you can have our attorneys fill this form out on your behalf and make sure it is filed on time.
  4. Negotiating a settlement with the responding U.S. Government and the Army. Let us handle negotiations for you, so we can work on your behalf to maximize your recovery. If a settlement isn’t reachable, then we can talk to you about filing a Federal Tort Claims lawsuit in federal court, which must be done within six months of the original claim’s denial.
