Medical Malpractice Lawyers for Active Duty Military and Veterans in Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs is home to army, air force, and space force bases; the town is bordered on three sides by military bases. Needless to say, thousands of military families in Colorado Springs rely on military hospitals and clinics to provide them with comprehensive health care, from routine checkups and preventive care to major surgeries. When seeking care at military hospitals, all goes well… until it doesn’t.

Medical malpractice can happen at any hospital, even those run by the military. But patients at a military hospital don’t have the same rights as civilians at a public or private hospital off-base. In fact, until just a couple of years ago, military members didn’t have any way at all to get compensation or hold military doctors and hospitals accountable for their preventable mistakes.

That system has changed somewhat, and military service members can now pursue claims for compensation from the Department of Defense. The medical malpractice attorneys at Bertling Law Group have taken on cases involving active-duty military and veterans who have been harmed by medical negligence. Our firm’s expertise covers all forms of medical mistakes, including psychiatric malpractice and the failure to reasonably protect patients from suicide. Our mission is to shine a spotlight on these tragedies in hopes the system will get better at preventing other families from suffering the same heartbreak.

If you were harmed or lost a loved one to medical malpractice at a Colorado Springs military hospital or VA medical center or clinic, we want to hear from you, and we want to help. Call Bertling Law Group for a free consultation at 844-295-7558. There’s no fee unless we recover for you.

Medical Malpractice Claims at Colorado Springs Military Hospitals & VA Medical Centers

Victims of medical malpractice at a military hospital or VA clinic can’t just sue in state court like they would if hurt by medical negligence at any other hospital or doctor’s office. Instead, they must file an administrative claim with the Department of Defense or the VA Regional Counsel. Claims against military hospitals can’t be appealed to court, and claimants are limited in how much information they can obtain for their case through the usual discovery process. Veterans can appeal their administrative claims through a lawsuit in federal court, but their suit will be restricted by what they alleged in their VA complaint.

An experienced military medical malpractice attorney at Bertling Law Group can help you put together a strong claim for relief at the administrative level as well as represent you in a civil claim in appropriate cases. With Bertling Law Group working with you from the start, you’ll be positioned for a successful resolution of your case at the earliest possible point.
