Mahoney Law recently settled a medical malpractice case on behalf of an elderly veteran for $825,000 due to VA hospital malrpactice. We handle cases against Veterans Affairs Hospitals and we represent veterans and their families. VA related malpractice cases are brought under the Federal Tort Claims Act, known as the “FTCA.” Patrick Mahoney is an experienced VA hospital malpractice lawyer. There are special pre-filing requirements for bringing a case against the VA. Yes, you can sue the VA for malpractice, but there are strict time and notice requirements. We have obtained several very large results against the VA in recent cases, including on an amputation case and on a spinal surgery related case. We have also obtained multi-million dollar results against federally funded clinics in cases brought under the FTCA. Veterans facilities are held to as high of standards as any private hospital or doctor. Please call or email us if you have questions on a Department of Veterans Affairs malpractice case, whether Army, Air Force, or Navy.
