What Is The NDAA, And How Does It Affect Me?
Up until very recently, service members had no legal recourse if they suffered medical negligence while on active duty for nearly 70 years. For example, if a military surgeon deviated from the standard of care and made a surgical error, the wounded patient could not sue for compensation.
Fortunately, due to a provision in the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), this has changed. Under the NDAA, active servicemen and women have the right to sue military medical providers for permanent damages. Any claim must be filed within two years of the date of the injury.
Are you a nonactive military member? You may still have a case for medical malpractice through the Federal Tort Claims Act. Contact the experienced lawyers of Arnold & Stafford, Attorneys at Law, to learn about your rights.
