Portland VA Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Seek Compensation After Medical Negligence
With roughly 19,000 doctors and more than 150 hospitals throughout the
nation, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides veterans
of the United States with various health services. VA hospitals are held
to the same standards of care as other hospitals. If they fail to meet
these standards and the result is an injury or some other condition, the
VA hospital may be held accountable in a medical malpractice claim.
At Paulson Coletti, we believe that VA hospitals should operate with the
utmost care and accuracy. They are taking care of individuals who have
already gone through very difficult times. These patients should not have
to worry about any acts of negligence when they are in the care of a physician
or doctor. Our Portland VA medical malpractice attorneys are dedicated
to helping our clients seek compensation after they have been injured
or misdiagnosed by a VA doctor.

VA Medical Negligence Statistics
The VA hospital has come under scrutiny over the past decade, particularly
for their inability to prevent deaths, mismanagement, and outbreaks of
infectious diseases. According to research and studies, a number of the
issues that patients encounter in VA hospitals is due to mismanagement.
The following stats regarding the VA cause some concern:
- The VA has paid out roughly $100 million annually since 2003 for medical
malpractice claims to more than 3,000 patients.
- Over 5.6 million veteran patients were treated in 2013, which is a significant
increase over the decade prior.
- In the decade after the 9/11 attacks, the VA paid nearly 1,000 families
$200 million in wrongful death lawsuits.
