Medical malpractice is, unfortunately, all too common, even for veterans who got treatment from the VA.
Kabb Law is a team of knowledgeable VA medical malpractice lawyers serving the Beachwood, OH, area.
If you or someone you care for has been injured as a result of VA medical malpractice, the law may help you recover damages.
The Beachwood, OH, area is home to thousands of veterans whose service has left them with continuing medical issues. Many of our local veterans in the eastern Cleveland area have gotten treated at the VA facilities in Brecksville or Wade Park, or at sites located around Ohio or over the state line at various VA hospitals and clinics. Most veterans get the treatment they need from the VA, but some, unfortunately, don’t.
When a person goes to a doctor for treatment of an injury or illness, the law expects the doctors, nurses and other professionals to do their best to help them. When that doesn’t happen, or if there are avoidable mistakes in your treatment — whether you know all the details or not — you might be the victim of malpractice.
The VA is not immune to these mistakes, and too many veterans have been hurt by negligent care. When this happens, you might have the right to recover damages for VA medical malpractice.
Examples of medical negligence you may experience include:
- Prescription errors, whether you took the medicine or not
- Mistakes made during surgery, whether it was fixed or not
- Bad advice, instructions or an inaccurate treatment plan that could have caused your condition to get worse or slowed your recovery
- Mistaken diagnoses, whether you were given the wrong treatment or not
If you think that you or someone you love may have been the victim of medical malpractice in a VA hospital, outpatient clinic or under the care of VA employees, you may have the right to recover.
You don’t have to go to court alone. Call the Kabb Law team of Beachwood, OH, for advice and assistance with your VA medical malpractice case.
