I wonder if I could file a 1151 claim for the awful care I have gotten at the pain clinic?

If you can prove mal-practice and have been left with additional residual disability

then - Yes - that is if you want the stress of more VA fighting.

Have you heard anything on your CUE yet ?

I think you should get a copy of ALL your medical files. The only thing I can think is that the doctors are not correctly documenting your pain. This is what we need to find out.

Keep me posted,

Cruinthe--This was Deasy's SECOND winning FTCA suit against the VA in 3/4 years! The first time around he won about $300k. As the article says, the VA appealed the $600k judgment and lost.

John999--Carlie raises a very relevant point about "the stress of VA fighting," please note that the trial court determined and the appeals court affirmed that the VA malpractice CAUSED PTSD!

Interesting case with potential to help those who are mistreated by VA medical providers.

Another approach would be to complain to the Joint Commission. They have very strict standards for treating pain. They enforce those standards. The VA listens when the Joint Commission speaks!

With either FTCA or 1151, you must be able to show identifiable damages/disability caused by VA treatment or lack of treatment.

I got the stronger dose of fentanyl and my back still is hurting. I don't really know what is wrong with me, but the stress of dealing with these cheap, lying bastards at the VA is making my pain worse and is causing me to be depressed and paranoid. I really have to get away from VA people and their abuse. I can't sleep at night because I am so angry. I feel like a doormat or the world's toilet paper.

    The Veterans Crisis Line can help even if you’re not enrolled in VA benefits or health care.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

    • 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.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
