Did VA pay you for being a "litigation risk"?

Former Member


In other words, did the VA deny your FTCA and/ or Section 1151 claim ,regarding malpractice-

but instead paid you a lump sum because your situation was deemed as a "litigation risk."

If so can you tell us where the payment came from?

Was it ordered via the District or General Counsel-VA, or by OMLA (Office of Medical-Legal _VA)?

If you are reading as a guest and received this highly unusual payment, can you join us to tell us why the General or District Counsel paid you this way?

D you have a copy of the check?

Does it say it is from the US Treasury?

Is it defined on the check as Cimpensation?

Do you have documented proof on any VA letterhead ,of why they paid you, and what VA entity paid you.

You do not have to identify yourself.

Sorry for typo- did the check read compensation-

One more question- did the OGC deny your FTCA and your Section 1151 but this amount was for a malpractice issue?

Were you discouraged by VA to file under 1151 , if they denied your FTCA but sent you this special payment anyhow.

I am aware of only one veteran who received this special type of payment and I know why he recived it -

My FTCA settlement payment came from the US Treasury Department -I think-

it was transferred directly to my bank.

I subsequently was awarded under 1151 , paid under the VA general Compensation fund, and then VA had to refund my offset to me, years later

because I proved direct SC death of my husband in addition to

death by VA.

Thanks for any replies.

    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. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – 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.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    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."

    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.

    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.
