VA Medical Malpractice

Nashville VA Malpractice Attorneys

Can You Sue The VA For Malpractice?

Veterans young and old seek medical care from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). For many veterans, obtaining medical care from the VA medical center is a source of pride—they believe that a benefit of having served our country is now to receive top-notch medical care. However, in recent years, the VA has faced scrutiny for many preventable deaths and infectious disease outbreaks, among other issues.

If you or a family member has sustained a serious injury or further illness while in the care of the VA, or if your loved one died while obtaining medical treatment at a VA medical center, Kinnard Law is here to help. Since 1977, our law firm has protected the rights of injured veterans in Tennessee and neighboring states. We boast a track record of success and are ready to stand up for your rights.

Providing Guidance Throughout the Duration of Your Claim

Unlike other personal injury or medical malpractice claims, VA malpractice cases can be more complicated, as they involve the federal government and additional legal restrictions and regulations. Our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of the process for filing medical negligence lawsuits against the federal government.

When you hire us, we make sure the following key steps are involved in your suit:

  • An administrative claim is made against the VA for damages. As experienced Nashville medical malpractice attorneys with access to a network of medical experts, we can determine the appropriate amount of financial compensation pursue with your claim.
  • You remain updated as much as possible about the progress of your claim. The VA has six months to investigate and review your claim. It will either accept the amount, try to settle for less, or deny your claim. We’ll keep you updated so you can make informed decisions.
  • File a lawsuit against the VA in federal court. If your claim is denied or the VA tries to lowball you, we can file a suit to secure compensation for your losses. We are trial lawyers who know how to present compelling cases in and out of the courtroom.

In addition to that, our lawyers can ensure that you meet the legal deadlines and requirements in order to obtain a successful outcome. Whether you need to seek additional medical care now or have sustained the loss of a family member due to the VA's negligence, we are committed to serving you.
