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



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.

bump - have new info-to ask this way- 

did the VA pay anyone here a small increase in their SC comp check because they were a "litigation risk" yet their FTCA and/or 1151 was denied?
