Question

Can a claim be filed for an injury due to hospital treatment if the hospital isn't a VA hospital, but is a military hospital (Fort Jackson, Moncrief)? Also, the statute of limitations has passed which prevents the person from filing a Federal Tort Claim.

Thanks

I think that a claim against the VA is still possible in this particular case.

Good Luck

This site might offer some help:

http://www.militarymedicalmalpractice.com/...ryhospitals.asp

This type of malpractice is explained at this site (there are many other military malpractice sites too) but it also says these claims usually come under the FTCA -therefore the claim of malpractice MUST be filed within 2 years after learning of the malpractice.

You may want to take a good look at the Gardner case that opened the door for Veterans who were injured due to VA negligence to be service connected for it.

Pete I met you at Prodigy around the time Rod was in the Gardner moratorium and I ended up in it after he died.

Gardner helped some vets but closed the door for many vets too-

Prior to Gardner there was a no fault idea to some Section 1151 claims-which were awarded as secondarys with a 'no fault' concept but after Gardner decision - a vet must prove negligence-

FTCA -Gardner didnt matter to FTCA claims however-it had nothing to do with ny FTCA at all- the VA deliberately held that up- not the moratorium-

But Gardner would only help this vet if they are filing a Section 1151 claim.

No statute of limits on Section 1151 claims-

I dont know if there are any Sec 1151 claims filed against military Hosps but the BVA web site might have some.

Berta and Pete thanks for the information. I'm just hoping that the 1151 can be filed against military hospitals that don't fall under VA such as Fort Jackson.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
