VA Medical Malpractice Attorneys
We Serve Clients in the Greater Greenville Area
U.S. Veterans are more than just another part of our population, they deserve
gratitude and respect for all they have done to protect and serve our
country. Unfortunately, many veterans are mistreated and outright deceived
when it comes their medical treatment. In fact, the Department of Veteran
Affairs (VA) has paid out over $845 million in malpractice cases over
the last 10 years.
Because of the growing number of veterans that require medical assistance,
VA hospitals have become overwhelmed, understaffed, and unable to address
the needs of their patients in a timely and efficient manner. If a veteran’s
medical and pharmaceutical needs are not adequately met, they can seek
financial compensation for the damages they suffered. Common injuries
and illnesses that are neglected by the VA include:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Hearing Damage
- Blindness & Vision Impairment
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Amputated Limbs
Common Kinds of Improper VA Care
Recently, there has been an alarming trend in news reports showing veterans
who are not receiving timely care, or whose medical treatment has been
mismanaged. Many times, the combination of these issues will cause a veteran
to experience unnecessary pain, suffering, serious injuries, health complications,
or even death. Common types of negligence found at VA hospitals include:
Hospital Errors: Such as understaffed, poorly trained, or overwhelmed doctors and nurses.
Surgical Errors: Things like poor pre-operative planning, errors during a procedure, and
Misdiagnosis: When a doctor’ diagnosis or assessment of a patient’s condition
results in unnecessary harm, further injury, or death.
Mismanaged Pain Medication: When a doctor or nurse fails to prescribe the correct medication or dosage
to a patient.
Mismanaged Childbirth & Delivery: Many birth injuries happen in a delivery room that deprives the baby of
needed medical care and causes further unnecessary complications.
Long Wait Times: When a patient needs immediate medical care and makes an appointment to
meet with a doctor but their appointment is pushed back or never occurs.
