Did you know?
Veterans filing medical malpractice claims against the VA have to do it under the Federal Tort Claims Act.
Before an FTCA lawsuit can be filed, the claimant has to file an administrative claim against the Dept. of Veteran Affairs for the amount of damages caused or suffered. The VA then has six months to investigate the claim and decide what to do with it. They can pay the claim, offer a lesser amount or reject the claim.
