Medical Malpractice Attorneys Serving the Military Community in Boise, Idaho
Active-duty military members and veterans need access to high-quality medical care on a regular basis, and thousands rely on the services provided at the hospital on their military base or the closest VA medical center or clinic. But doctors and hospitals everywhere make mistakes – mistakes that shouldn’t be made. Overworked doctors and nurses at understaffed clinics and hospitals can make mistakes ranging from medication errors to performing surgery on the wrong patient, and the lack of reasonable hospital safety protocols and supervision only enables these errors to happen.
When military personnel fall prey to medical malpractice, they need to be compensated for the needless, preventable harm done to them. But where do they turn? Until very recently, active-duty service members had no way to bring a claim against the Department of Defense for malpractice. But now they do. The medical malpractice attorneys at Bertling Law Group are familiar with the administrative procedures unique to malpractice claims involving active-duty and retired military. We travel the country helping military members get compensation for harm caused by medical negligence, working especially to shine the spotlight on negligent medical care that leads to suicide by an active-duty service member or veteran.
If you were harmed at a military hospital or VA medical center or clinic in Boise, or if you lost a loved one due to an inexcusable medical error, we want to hear from you, and we want to help. Call Bertling Law Group for a free consultation at 844-295-7558. We don’t charge any fee until after we are successful in recovering compensation on your behalf.
Military Hospitals and VA Clinics Serving Boise
Mountain Home Air Force Base lies about 50 miles southeast of Boise. Here, the 366th Medical Clinic provides a wide range of hospital and medical services to active-duty military and their families, including primary care, preventive care, hospital care & surgery, urgent & emergency care, mental health and substance abuse treatment, lab tests and radiology, specialty care, case management, dental pharmacy, vision, women’s health and pregnancy, children’s health and other services.
Veterans in Boise can avail themselves of medical care closer to home at the Boise VA Medical Center, and they also have access to outpatient resources such as the Caldwell VA Clinic 22 miles away in Caldwell, or the VA Clinic in Mountain Home.
Active-duty military members and veterans harmed by medical malpractice can file administrative claims for compensation by filing Standard Form 95 with their service branch or the VA Regional Counsel, respectively. This is the only recourse for service members, and it is equally important for veterans who, although they can file lawsuits in federal court, must first file an administrative claim and can be limited in court by the information they provided on Standard Form 95.
The Bertling Law Group Can Help With Boise Military and Veterans Medical Malpractice Claims
Military members and veterans in Boise have limited options when it comes to accessing medical care. Most of the time, our soldiers and vets hopefully receive quality care from competent, attentive doctors and nurses. But sometimes things go wrong and when they do, you deserve to know what happened. Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys go to work to find out whether medical mistakes happened that shouldn’t have. If they did, we work to correct those mistakes in the future while holding the negligent providers accountable to you for the harm they have caused to you or your loved one. Our comprehensive medical negligence law practice includes errors in all the following areas:
- Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose
- Delays in Medical Diagnosis
- Medication and Prescription Errors
- Surgical Negligence and Unnecessary Surgery
- Negligent Prenatal Care
- Birth Injuries
- Nursing Negligence
- Anesthesia Negligence
- Post-Surgical Errors and Infections
- Negligent Medical Care and Mental Health Support Resulting in Suicide
This last area has a particular resonance with military members, veterans and their families. Active duty service members and veterans alike are prone to suffer from anxiety, depression and PTSD linked to their service, which can put them at risk for suicidal ideation. Military hospitals and VA clinics act as though they are equipped to deal with these issues, so when people come here to seek out treatment and their treatment is misguided, the results are especially heartbreaking. At Bertling Law Group, we strive to see that our work does more than compensate families for their loss but also fixes a broken system so these tragedies don’t keep happening.
