VA Malpractice Data

by Kristina Derro
Veterans Disability Lawyer

Recent data published by the Project on Government Oversight revealed that VA paid out over a dozen million-dollar malpractice payouts because of either failure on the part of VA to obtain informed consent from its patients or VA’s health care providers failing to timely diagnose and treat conditions.

Out of more than 12,000 claims against VA from 1989 to 2008, several thousand were related to medical malpractice. Of those, 16 had payouts of $1 million or more due to clinical negligence.
