Medical Malpractice by the VA
Many current or former service members and their families receive medical care at healthcare centers and hospitals operated by the VA. Sometimes, actions by the VA doctor or healthcare staff may cause harm to the patient.
The Feres Doctrine (1950) bars service members from collecting damages for personal injuries, whether or not they were suffered in the performance of their duties. It also bars family members from filing "wrongful death" or "loss of consortium" claims when a service member is killed or injured.
