Veteran’s Affairs Complaints
As members of America’s finest and bravest, our veterans deserve the best possible care and support in their moment of need. Our own Paul Perantinides proudly served, and all of us at Perantinides & Nolan, Co., L.P.A. consider it an honor to advocate for our country’s veterans.
Veterans should be able to rely on the system of health care provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide them with proper and appropriate medical treatment.
When our veterans are not treated with the high level of care they have earned, they may be entitled to financial compensation. In certain cases, doctors fail to diagnose diseases in time, leading to lengthy hospital stays or even death. Nurses forget to administer prescribed medications. Surgeons fail to warn patients about the risks of surgical procedures. Psychologists neglect warning signs indicating a patient is at risk for suicide. Our veterans deserve only the best, and when the health care providers of the Department of Veterans Affairs do not provide veterans with adequate medical attention, the costs and consequences can be catastrophic.
If you or someone you love is a veteran who was injured due to the negligence of a health care provider at one of our many Veterans Affairs’ hospitals and clinics, you may be eligible to recover for lost wages, and obtain compensation for pain and suffering, and your medical expenses.
If your family has suffered the loss of a loved one due to the negligence of Veterans Affairs’ hospitals and clinics, your family may be entitled to compensation as part of a wrongful death claim. Our lawyers consider it a privilege to evaluate the specific details of matters involving veterans and answer any questions a veteran or his or her family may have in a compassionate, honest manner.
The task of taking on the federal government to recover compensation for your injuries may seem intimidating, but the lawyers at the law firm of Perantinides & Nolan, Co., L.P.A., have helped many victims and their families recover compensation for these injuries.
