The Right to Recover Substantial Damages
Millions of dollars are often recoverable in military medical malpractice cases. In some cases compensation reaches into the tens of millions. In the case of a birth-injured child who develops cerebral palsy, lost earning capacity alone often runs into the millions of dollars, and future medical care can easily amount to tens of millions of dollars.
Compensation for patients may be available for:
- Personal injuries
- The effect such injuries have on overall physical health and well-being
- Physical pain and mental anguish
- Disfigurement and associated humiliation or embarrassment
- Medical and other expenses
- Loss of earnings and earning capacity
Compensation in wrongful death cases may be available for:
- The deceased’s conscious pain, suffering, and lost earnings
- For certain survivors, mental anguish and loss of love, companionship, and financial support
What it Takes to Win

- Have a track record of winning record-breaking verdicts and settlements,

- Have the financial ability to generously fund cases so the best expert support can be obtained,

- Work with top medical experts, and
- Deeply care about the families they represent.
JJS checks all these boxes, and more.
Military Medical Malpractice Cases are Brought Under the Federal Tort Claims Act (Ftca) – FIVE FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW
- A claimant must provide written notice to the government about his or her claim before filing a lawsuit. This is an administrative claim, which the government has six months to answer.
- Notice must be presented to the appropriate federal agency, such as the Department of the Navy, Army, Marines or Air Force, or the Veterans Administration.
- If the agency denies the claim, the claimant can file suit in federal court within six months of the denial. If no decision is made by the agency after six months, a claimant can file suit thereafter.
- A fixed deadline of two years from the date of the injury applies to filing the administrative notice, and if that deadline has not been met, the claim will be barred.
- A separate fixed deadline applies to the filing of a lawsuit, and if that deadline has not been met, the claim may be barred.
If you suspect you have a viable military medical malpractice claim, it is absolutely essential that you consult an experienced military malpractice lawyer about these deadlines and the information that must be provided to the government in your notice of claim.
