You won't 'lose' any established comp at all.

We have considerable info on both 1151 and in our FTCA forum here and I added to the separate new Section 1151 forum that doesn't have much in it yet.

My husband had 100% SC for PTSD by a posthuous award.

I was awarded FTCA as well as 1151 for his death.It is explained in the FTCA forum as my experience has helped others.

VA service connected his heart disease first under 1151 FTCA (1998) and then recently under AO.(Jan 2012) I had to file a CUE claim on his major VA induced malracticed stroke.

The CUE award I got this past January specifically granted the stroke under 1151, with retro, in addition to the established 100% SC.Part of the award was the 100% CVA ratings for 6 months and then SMC kicked in for the residuals.

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

I would like to know if I file A Ftca or a 1151 would either use by benefits I am 100% disabled and recently lost my vision in my right eye due to the VA.

First welcome to Hadit.

To answer your question.. No a tort claim or 1151 claim will not cause you to lose benefits. I lost the vision in my left eye due to VA surgery in 2008. I filed an 1151 which was awarded but is now on appeal. I lost the tort claim, but that is because of the way the lawyers handled it, they back out and didn't nofify me until it was too late to get a new lawyer.

Can you tell us more about how the va is responsible, my situtation is that I had cataract surgery and the va put the new lens to close to close to the iris which caused a lot of problems.....
