How the Federal Tort Claims Act (FCTA) Helps You
The Federal Tort Claims Act is a statute that all medical malpractice claims against the U.S. government must be filed under. It lets military personnel, veterans and military families who are victims of medical malpractice sue the appropriate government agency in federal court. The injuries have to have been the result of the negligence of a military doctor or other medical specialists that has happened in a military or VA hospital, or on a military base located in the U.S.
Under this act, you and your family members can be protected from the results of military medical malpractice. You have a chance to obtain compensation for the pain and suffering and related medical expenses you’ve encountered.
How the Military Claims Act (MCA) Helps You
The Military Claims Act is a statute put in place to supplement the FTCA in order to protect military personnel and military families who are victims of medical malpractice that occurs outside of the U.S. Like FTCA, it allows those medical malpractice victims the ability to sue the appropriate military agency for the medical negligence of its military doctors or medical specialists. This means you may be able to receive compensation from the government for the pain and suffering and related medical expenses you’ve endured.
