VA Hospital Negligence

Increasingly, injured servicemen and women receiving treatment at a VA hospital in Seattle are being returned to duty before attaining maximum medical recovery. VA hospitals are now often understaffed, relative to the increasing number of the injured and sick they must now handle. If you are in the service and suffered an injury while under treatment at a VA hospital, you have the right to pursue a claim against the government. VA hospital injury claims are complex and require an understanding of government policies and procedures. We are prominent personal injury lawyers serving the needs of servicemen and women injured in VA hospitals. There are also special notice requirements that apply in VA Hospital claims. Failing to file the appropriate notice can limit or take away your right to pursue a VA Hospital claim.
