At Unruh Law, we understand the sacrifices our brave veterans have made to protect our nation.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries, medical malpractice, or other harms while under the care of the VA, our experienced team of attorneys is here to help you pursue justice through VA Tort Claims.
What are VA Tort Claims?
VA Tort Claims refer to legal actions brought against the VA for medical malpractice or other personal injuries caused by the negligence, errors, or wrongful acts of VA healthcare providers. These claims are governed by the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), which allows individuals to seek compensation for damages caused by the negligent or wrongful conduct of federal employees, including those working for the VA.
Why Pursue a VA Tort Claim?
When a veteran seeks medical care at a VA facility, they have the right to expect a reasonable standard of care. However, medical mistakes can occur, resulting in serious harm or even wrongful death. Pursuing a VA Tort Claim allows injured veterans to hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions and seek compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial damages they have suffered.
