    Claims under 38 U.S.C. § 1151

    Benefits for additional disability or death caused by VA medical care is government by 38 U.S.C. § 1151.

To prove a § 1151 claim, a claimant must show that the veteran’s death or his additional disability was caused by negligent VA medical care or by some unforeseeable complication of the VA medical care.
