Las Vegas, Arizona, And Utah VA Hospital Negligence Attorneys
As a Veteran, you served our country by putting your life in danger on a daily basis. Whether you served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard, you made significant personal sacrifices to protect our freedoms and the American way of life. In return, the government promised to take care of you, including covering your medical needs for life after your discharge from the military. At The Gage Law Firm, PLLC, we believe that America’s Veterans deserve quality medical care.
Unfortunately, medical malpractice at VA hospitals and medical centers has become a problem around the country, including in Nevada, Arizona and Utah. Frequently, Veterans face unreasonable wait times to see physicians, get diagnostic studies and undergo therapeutic interventions. Access to specialists and subspecialists is sometimes denied with the hope of holding down VA costs. At times, VA government bureaucrats have been more concerned with making statistics look good on paper rather than ensuring that Veterans receive the highest quality medical care. This means that Veterans with complex medical problems are sometimes cared for by unqualified or under-qualified non-physician health care providers. When cutting corners results in an injury or harm to one of America’s Veterans, The Gage Law Firm, PLLC, is here to help.
Helping Veterans Receive Fair Compensation After Suffering Medical Malpractice At VA Hospitals
We have experience helping Veterans who have been injured or died as a result of medical malpractice such as:
- Failure to prevent stroke
- Inappropriately managed heart disease
- Unnecessary complications of diabetes
- Poorly managed psychiatric illnesses including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and bipolar disorder
- Suicide because of a mental disorder that was not well-managed by the VA
If you are a Veteran who suffered needlessly due to medical malpractice at a VA hospital, medical center or clinic, the lawyers at The Gage Law Firm, PLLC, may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve. We know that financial compensation will not reverse the injury you sustained, but responsible parties should be held accountable.
If you are the family member of a Veteran who died in a VA hospital or under the care of a VA health care provider, we may be able to assist you with filing a claim for compensation. If your loved one died in a VA hospital or medical center, and you believe he or she may have been the victim of medical malpractice, call us for a free consultation.
Litigating cases against the VA is a complex area of the law but one with which The Gage Law Firm, PLLC, attorneys are particularly experienced. Our attorneys have successfully filed claims on behalf of Veterans against both the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System and the VA Sierra Nevada Health Care System. We also handle cases against active duty military hospitals such as the Michael O’Callaghan Federal Hospital (MOFH) in Las Vegas. We work hard to hold VA hospitals and active duty military base medical facilities nationwide responsible for medical malpractice.
