The VA (Veterans Administration) is not like your private hospital.
If a physician at your local hospital is negligent, and causes a patient injury, you can file a lawsuit in state court.
If a physician at the VA is negligent, and that physician is an employee of the VA, you cannot file suit in state court. You have to file suit against the United States.
Sounds crazy, eh?
VA cases are defined by Federal Law, specifically the Federal Tort Claims Act which has very specific provisions and rules applying to VA cases.
