Have you or a loved one been seriously hurt by negligent medical care at a hospital or clinic run by one of the armed services or the Veterans Administration? This web site is dedicated to educating you about your legal rights.

Patients who are treated at military or veterans facilities have the right to the same high quality care as any American at any civilian facility. When those rights are not respected, the government can be held financially liable for the resulting injury and damage. This website is a service of Stein, Mitchell & Mezines, the premier law firm in Washington, D.C. for serious personal injury and malpractice cases.

What kinds of claims can be brought?
Typical examples include:
  • A baby delivered at a military hospital suffers brain damage or nerve damage to an arm due to improper delivery procedures.
  • A veteran who gets regular care at a VA facility develops a preventable complication of diabetes, like diabetic blindness, because of failure to give him or her the proper regular testing.
  • A spouse of a military service person is injured due to poor hospital or clinic care.
Two laws govern malpractice claims against U.S. military facilities:
