How do I sue the Navy Medical Malpractice?
When filing suit against the government for injuries from medical malpractice at a military hospital, individuals must follow the strict rules of the FTCA.
- File a Form 95 with the correct federal agency.
- In the Form 95, state the nature of your claim and the sum of the damages sought.
- File the Form 95 within two years of the negligence.
Once the Form 95 has been filed with the appropriate federal agency, you must work with the agency to resolve your claim. If the claim cannot be resolved with the federal agency, you have the option of filing suit after the prescribed waiting period, so long as you file within the appropriate limitations period.
