Medical malpractice claims against the military are subject to laws and procedures that are different than those of a California malpractice action. They are subject to a federal law, called the Federal Tort Claims Act. Michels & Lew has extensive experience in medical negligence lawsuits against federal departments and agencies.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice, or medical negligence, occurs when a medical professional provides substandard treatment, resulting in injury, harm or death. Medical negligence can take many forms, including the following:
- Failure to diagnose
- Late diagnosis
- Medication and prescription errors in the hospital or by a pharmacy
- Anesthesia errors
- Surgical errors
- Emergency room errors
