Overseas Claims

Military Medical Malpractice Overseas

As active military personnel, if you, your spouse, or a family member suffers an injury due to medical malpractice in a US military hospital based in a foreign country, it is very difficult to file a lawsuit against the government for injuries suffered. It is extremely important that you hire an attorney that has the necessary experience and success in filing overseas medical malpractice claims against the government. At Brown Law, we have more than 30 years of medical malpractice experience, with an impressive success rate in achieving results for our clients.

If you or a beloved family member has suffered from an injury at a military medical facility overseas, we can help. Please call Brown Law at 1-877-695-8757 for your free consultation today. There are specific procedures and deadlines (statute of limitations) required when filing a military medical malpractice claim overseas, and your only legal resource may be to file a claim under the Military Claims Act (MCA). The MCA is similar to the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), with the exception that if your initial claim is denied, you have no rights in filing a lawsuit. Here are some other important details about filing overseas claims under the MCA:

  • Although you cannot file a medical malpractice claim per se, overseas military medical facilities and doctors can be held liable for injuries that result from malpractice.

  • In order to receive compensation to recover damages, the initial injury claim must not be denied. That is why it is crucial to have one of our experienced lawyers navigate you through this complex legal process.

  • In some cases, an appeal can be filed, but it must be filed within 30 days with the Judge Advocate General’s office.

Types of Overseas Claims We Handle

At Brown Law, we tirelessly pursue the best recovery in each and every case. Our experienced lawyers will make sure your rights are fully protected, and will work hard to get the results you deserve. Here is a list of the overseas claims and practice areas we handle:

Important Information about Filing Overseas Claims

If you, your spouse, or your child has been injured due to the negligence of  Air Force, Army, or Navy personnel anywhere in a foreign military hospital or facility, there is important information you need to know in getting your overseas claim going in the right direction:

  • You must obtain all records pertaining to the injury or death

  • Obtain your records in person independently, rather than relying on the facility to provide your records

  • Acquire critical documents and notes from the military treatment facility with a special written legal request our attorneys will provide for you

If you or a loved one were injured as a result of military medical malpractice overseas, the rules are very different from a stateside military malpractice claim. Simply fill out the online form or call us at 1-877-695-8757 for your free initial consultation today.
