If you, your spouse or your child is a United States military dependent and a victim of medical negligence or malpractice, we can help you. At Ryan & Brown, we represent military families around the world get compensation for their injuries. Unfortunately, the law does not allow active duty military personnel to bring a claim against the US government for the soldier’s own personal injury. However, if a dependent is injured, he or she is eligible to bring a claim for military medical malpractice, and the active duty spouse or parent may also file a claim if it is a family member who has been injured.
At Ryan & Brown, we have successfully handled all types of military medical malpractice for a combined 65 years in the business. We serve all branches of the military, including the Army, Air Force , Navy and Marines in all 50 states, US territories, and military bases overseas. We are an experienced law firm with national presence, and will travel to wherever you are stationed and work with you face-to-face on a personal level. When you hire our services, you will get:
Top legal representation no matter where you are stationed
Aggressive client advocacy
Tireless pursuit of the best possible recovery in your case
All forms and documents being filed in a timely manner
Ongoing updates to the status of your claim
Personal service from an attorney, not an assistant or paralegal
There are two separate federal laws that apply to military medical malpractice claims. The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) applies to injuries that occur stateside, and the Military Claims Act (MCA) applies to injuries occurring at military medical hospitals and clinics overseas. In order to pursue a case against the US military you must:
First file an administrative claim (before the two-year statute of limitations expires) and then
For FTCA cases, file the lawsuit in the appropriate federal court after the six month waiting period or within six months after the US has taken final action on the administrative claim.
