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 a concerning trend of veterans not receiving timely care, or having their medical treatment mismanaged. Many times, these issues lead to a veteran experiencing undo 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: These include poor planning prior to an operation, errors that occur during the procedure, and post-operative errors.
  • 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: Sadly, some delivery rooms deprive the baby of the medical care it needs, causing further unnecessary complications.
  • Unnecessarily 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.
