Veteran Awarded $2.5 Million in Phoenix VA Malpractice Case

March 25, 2017

On March 6, 2017, Steven Cooper, an 18-year U.S. Army Veteran, was awarded $2.5 million in a malpractice lawsuit filed against the Phoenix VA. Cooper is one of many veterans forced to wait over a year to secure an appointment at the Phoenix VA Health Center. The Army veteran claimed he developed stage 4 prostate cancer due to the long wait times and improper treatment.

Fellow veterans from the Phoenix area packed the courtroom as the verdict was handed down to show support for Cooper. The ruling is being seen as a huge victory for other veterans who received sub-standard or neglectful care. Cooper hopes his victory inspires other veterans to hold the VA accountable.

However, Cooper added that the money is of little consolation. “They could’ve made a $200 million verdict. I’m still going to die in a few years, so that’s irrelevant,” he said.  Doctors tell Cooper he has less than five years to live.
