Justice Department Report Alleges Serious Mistreatment at State Veterans Home

A report released by the United States Justice Department alleges the care received at an Alabama veterans home has “contributed to the untimely deaths of … residents as well as led to other preventable illnesses, injuries, and harm.” Veterans injured while receiving care through the Department of Veterans Affairs may bring what is known as a Federal Tort Claims Act lawsuit against the government for negligent care and medical malpractice committed by a VA facility. Further, state law may provide those injured the ability to sue VA nursing homes as private citizens. To read more about this Justice Department report, please click here.
