Military Medical Malpractice
If you or a family member has suffered due to malpractice at a military or veterans’ hospital, you have the right to pursue compensation for your losses.
At The Burchett Law Firm, PC, I handle military medical malpractice claims for military personnel and their family members in San Diego and throughout Southern California, including those stationed at Camp Pendleton, Miramar, North Island, 32nd Street, Point Loma, or onboard ship.
I have more than 30 years of experience handling complex medical malpractice claims involving surgical errors, birth injuries, misdiagnosis and other medical mistakes at civilian and military hospitals.
The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA)
You cannot sue a negligent military doctor in the same way you’d bring a claim against a civilian doctor. If you were injured while getting treatment at a military hospital, you must pursue a claim through the Federal Tort Claims Act.
The statute of limitations for such claims is two years from the date of the injury.
I have handled many FTCA claims and can guide you through the process, ensuring that all of your paperwork is properly handled and that you meet all deadlines.
