If you are a member of the United States military, you deserve the best of the best when it comes to healthcare. At Ryan & Brown, we help military families around the world who are the victims of just the opposite – military medical malpractice and negligence. Unfortunately, our laws do not allow you, as active duty military personnel, to bring a claim against the US government for your own personal injury. However, your family members and dependents are eligible to bring a claim in the case of military medical malpractice, and active duty members can also file their own claims if a family member has been injured.
At Ryan & Brown, we have 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 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 your station is and work with you face-to-face on a personal level. When you hire our services, you are entitled to:
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
Under US federal law, there are two separate 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) that 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.
