How do I sue the Army?
When filing suit against the United States for injuries from Army medical malpractice at a military hospital, individuals must follow the strict rules of the Federal Tort Claims Act.
- A Form 95 must be filed with the correct federal agency.
- The Form 95 must state the nature of your claim and what’s called a “sum certain.”
- The Form 95 must be filed within 2 years of accrual of the negligence.
- Once the Form 95 has been filed with the appropriate federal agency, then you must work with the agency to resolve your claim. There are a lot of pitfalls if you do not know what you are doing. If you cannot successfully resolve the claim administratively, you have the option of filing suit so long as you file within the appropriate limitations period. Our attorneys have decades of trial experience and are able to assist you in this process. Please contact us if you need a free evaluation of your claim. Once you have filed your form 95, you must wait at least 6 months (maybe more depending on the course of your administrative claim) before you can file a federal lawsuit.
If you believe you are a victim of military medical malpractice, call us now—if you wait too long, it may be too late.
