Military Medical Malpractice: An injured dependent can recover for injuries.

When you, your spouse or your child is the victim of medical malpractice at a military hospital, you may have misconceptions about your rights to pursue a claim against the military. Therefore it is very important you consult with a lawyer who is experienced in handling military malpractice cases to make sure your rights are protected.

For example, did you know:

1. You can sue the military or government for medical malpractice.
Many people mistakenly believe they cannot sue the government. However, an injured military dependent may file a claim for medical negligence whether injured at an Army, Navy, or Air Force hospital. An active duty person may also file a claim for malpractice done to his or her child or spouse by a military doctor.  This is true for military hospitals in all 50 states, all US territories and all military bases overseas.

2. You generally have only two (2) years to file a claim for military medical malpractice even if the claim is for a child under the age of 18.
There is generally a two (2) year statute of limitations that applies to everyone, including children, for medical malpractice claims against the government. There are limited exceptions and how the two-year time period is calculated varies greatly from cases to case, so it is very important to talk to a lawyer who knows the federal laws applicable to these claims as soon as possible to make sure you file a timely claim.

3. Your military career will not be harmed if you file a claim for medical malpractice done to your dependents.

It is understandable that you may be concerned about your career, but filing a claim for medical negligence will not damage your career or jeopardize subsequent health care for your family.
