Filing Claims Against the U.S. Military

If you were injured at a military hospital or medical clinic, then you might be able to demand compensation for your losses. However, the process will not be the same as filing a personal injury claim against a typical defendant. Instead, to file against the federal government, such as in a case involving military medical malpractice in Virginia, you will need to fill out an administrative claim and follow the rules set by the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA).

To file an FTCA claim, these steps will usually be followed:

  1. Collect all records related to your medical treatments at the military medical facility that caused your injury through an unacceptable error. Don’t forget to compile any out of pocket billing records that detail the financial costs you have already incurred.
  2. Keep a journal that details your daily symptoms, struggles, and disabilities caused by the injury or illness you suffered due to military medical malpractice. This journal will be helpful for our attorneys to understand what you are going through and what type of damages would be justified.
  3. With the help of an experienced FTCA lawyer, fill out a Standard Form 95.  This must be done within the two-year statute of limitations set by the FTCA. This form begins the administrative process of seeking compensation for harm caused by a federal agency, such as the United States Military. Deadlines shorter than two years could apply to your case, so it is recommended to talk with one of our Virginia military medical malpractice lawyers as soon as you can.
  4. If the claim is denied after filing the Form 95, or a settlement negotiation is not possible, then we can talk to you about taking your FTCA claim to federal court. This decision must be made and the case must be filed within six months of the administrative claim’s denial.

Our attorneys are here to help you understand and utilize an FTCA claim, so don’t worry about the details. Call (833) 913-1885 as soon as you need us if you were hurt due to medical mistakes at a military hospital or on-base medical clinic.

Let Us Handle Every Step

You can trust National Trial Law to guide you through every step of the legal process surrounding your Virginia military medical malpractice case. We offer contingency fee agreements to military service members and veterans, which means that you won’t owe anything out of pocket unless we end your case in your favor. Also, the FTCA limits attorney fees to no more than 20% if the claim is settled administratively, or 25% of any settlement or judgment recovered for you after a federal lawsuit is filed, so you can be sure that our legal services are always affordable.

Our attorneys are here to help with every single step, including:

  • Drafting the Form 95 and filing it with the right federal agency before any statutes of limitations expire.
  • Responding to any inquiries that the government and its lawyers might send in response to the Form 95.
  • Negotiating a settlement that adequately covers your losses and considers all forms of damage that you have experienced due to the medical error.
  • Preparing a lawsuit and going to court if a settlement is not possible if you and your lawyer agree it’s the best option.
  • Providing emotional support throughout the entire process because we know just how stressful this situation can be, especially if you are trying to focus on recovering from an injury.
