Navy Hospitals

Lawyer for Malpractice at Navy Hospitals

Can I sue the Navy for medical malpractice?

YES – if the person who was physically injured by the Navy doctor, midwife or nurse was a military dependent, or retired military at the time of the Navy malpractice.  

Does medical malpractice happen at Navy hospitals?

YES – a recent comprehensive study of the 54 military hospitals in the United States and overseas that provide inpatient services, published in the New York Times, showed that many compare poorly to leading civilian hospitals on measures of safety in maternity care. Those Navy hospitals with high rates of birth injuries included: Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, Virginia; Naval Medical Center; San Diego, California; Naval Hospital Camp Pendelton, California; Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune, North Carolina; Naval Hospital Pensacola, Florida; Naval Hospital Agana Heights, Guam; Naval Hospital Yokosuka, Japan.

Another study showed that the Navy’s largest hospitals performed worse that established benchmarks for things such as infections and improperly done procedures. One Navy hospital found to have high rates of surgical complications was Naval Medical Center; San Diego, California.

How do I sue the Navy for medical malpractice?

The rules are different when suing the Navy for malpractice than if you were suing a civilian doctor.  For example, you must first file an administrative claim (an SF95), the time limits are different especially for children, and where you must file the case is different.  Therefore it is important to consult a lawyer who has experience suing the Navy for malpractice to make sure your rights are protected.
