Seattle Military Hospital Malpractice Lawyer
If you or a family member has been hurt as a result of negligence in a military hospital, you need an experienced military medical malpractice law firm on your side. At Miracle Pruzan & Pruzan in Seattle, Washington, we represent families of military service personnel as well as retirees and their dependents, in military medical malpractice claims.
The amount of time you have to file a claim for medical malpractice varies greatly depending on multiple factors. Generally for cases involving the United States, you have only two years from the date of the injury to file a claim. This applies to infants, children, disabled persons, adults and death cases.
Tacoma Naval Hospital Birth Injuries
Generally, the following people can sue the United States for medical malpractice that occurred in a military medical facility or was caused by a military doctor:
- Military dependants
- Retirees who were injured while they were retired
- Veterans who received injuries at VA Hospitals
Unfortunately, current law does not allow an active duty service member to file a claim for medical malpractice done directly to him or her by an active duty military doctor. We have experience with the many challenges presented by filing claims against the military.
You Don’t Pay Unless We Obtain A Recovery For You
We accept most malpractice cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay lawyer fees unless we are successful in getting a settlement for you or we win your case at trial.
We work with veterans and enlisted personnel who have been injured or whose family members suffered injuries while being treated at Madigan Army Medical Center, Bremerton Naval Hospital, Naval Hospital Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island, American Lake VA Hospital in Tacoma or any other military hospital or health care facility.
