Federal Tort Claims Act
One of the most important things that people should understand is the challenges associated with filing a military medical malpractice claim against the military. The Federal Torts Claims Act govern these claims. Before filing an actual lawsuit in court, we must first file a claim directly against the government.
Time Limit for Filing VA Injury Claims
You must also file a claim under the Federal Tort Claims against the government within two years of the discovery or diagnosis of a serious medical condition caused by medical malpractice. This does not mean the date that you initially discovered the pain associated with your injury. We will advise you about your rights and obligations under these acts.
