VA Hospital Medical Malpractice Attorney

Veteran Assistance Hospitals (VA hospitals) are just like ordinary Hospitals in that they are held up to the same standards and code of ethics that they are required to offer each one of their patients. However, VA hospitals are often overwhelmed, understaffed, and un able to address all of the varying needs of their patients efficiently. This is due to a large number of veterans who require medical treatment. For this reason, mistakes tend to occur within VA Hospitals that may not typically happen within an adequately staffed and supplied hospital. If you or a loved one has experienced damages as the result of VA Hospital Malpractice, negligence, or misconduct you may be eligible for significant compensation.

VA Hospitals
Under US law The Department of Veteran’s Affairs is required to provide proper health care for the United States military veterans. This health plan includes things like regular doctors’ visits to intensive outpatient procedures. These treatments, however, are only performed ‘as needed.’ The Department of Veteran’s Affairs defines ‘as needed’ as the care or service of an individual that will promote, preserve, and restore the health of said individual. Below is a list of treatments commonly covered by VA hospital care:

  • Rehabilitation From Blindness
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Exposure to Agent Orange
  • Gulf War Syndrome & any Illnesses that could be related
  • Exposure to Radiation
  • Treatment of HIV/AIDS

There are a variety of factors that go into what makes a Veteran eligible for VA Programs, but basic eligibility requires having served in active military service and was separated from the militarily honorably. In many cases, the dependents of a veteran can also fall under VA health care eligibility.

VA Hospital Malpractice
Veterans are known to suffer from a variety of ailments, injuries, and mental/emotional damages. If these illnesses are not treated properly, the victim can suffer debilitating and sometimes incurable injuries that may make the victim in need of a VA Hospital Malpractice Attorney. Errors at VA Hospitals can include things errors like wrongful amputation, amputation of the wrong limb, a failure to diagnose (including cancer and DVT), Pharmaceutical prescription errors, emergency room and surgical mistakes, operation errors, or ER errors. Any and all of these mistakes made by medical professionals can result in significant damages that can make the victim eligible for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

VA Hospital Staff is held up to the same standards of care to be expected of regular hospital staff. When this care is neglected, or the professional lacks the proper training, the patient can experience significant damages that can, at times, be far worse than the originally treated ailment. These doctors should be held accountable in these cases of malpractice. However, to file a case of medical malpractice requires that the plaintiff (victim/patient) can prove the medical professional acted in negligence and did not perform within the standard of care expected.

First and foremost, you must be able to show that a doctor-patient relationship existed. This can be simply defined as: you agreed to hire the doctor, and the doctor agreed to be hired. Secondly, you must be able to prove that the doctor acted negligently. Mistakes do happen. However, not all procedures end in the desired outcome. You must be able to prove, that the doctor you hired caused you harm in a way that a competent doctor would not have. Thirdly, you must be able to prove that the doctor’s negligence caused the injury. This means that you must show that the doctor’s negligence directly caused you said damages. To prove this, it is best to rely on the knowledge of another medical expert, who will be able to discern whether the doctor’s negligence caused your damages. Lastly, you must be able to prove that you have sustained damages. These damages can be accounted through medical bills and records, which show the extent of harm of you have endured.

All of these factors play into the nature of any one medical malpractice case. To determine whether or not you have a successful case worth fighting you must first compare your situation and damages against these previous factors.
