Naval Medical Malpractice
Navy personnel and their families have the right to expect and receive competent medical treatment at any US Naval Hospital or Naval Medical Facility. Like their civilian counterparts, they have the right to receive treatment that conforms to established medical standards of care. When this right is compromised retired military members and their families are entitled to file a lawsuit for medical malpractice. Active duty personnel may also file claims for injuries/death of their dependents due to medical malpractice.
We are attorneys who are Navy veterans and understand firsthand the special challenges faced by Navy families. We have lived the unique pressures and uncertainties that deployment represents for Navy families. Our strong experience in representing active duty personnel, dependents, and retired Navy personnel in medical malpractice claims is international in scope.
We understand the naval medical system and how to work successfully within the strict guidelines set by the Federal Tort Claims Act and the Military Claims Act, which rule all claims made against the U.S. Government. See our page on Military Medical Malpractice.
