My name is Michael Archuleta, and my passion is to handle federal tort claims, and specifically, military and veteran’s malpractice cases under the Federal Tort Claims Act. I’ve been doing this for about twenty years.

Some of my background that’s helpful to handling these cases is that I’m also a physician. Before I went to law school, I completed medical school and I completed an internship, and I’m a licensed physician, which makes me a medical doctor. And, that has been one of the most important things that I’ve done in my life, and in my career.

I went to law school because I am passionate about helping people and their families when someone is injured or killed as a result as a result of medical negligence. Later, I focused my practice on military and veteran’s military malpractice cases, because I have found that those families and those veterans and those military members are some of the best clients that a lawyer could ever have.

A primary misconception that we’ve heard clients say many times is that they were told that the government couldn’t be sued, or that the Army/Navy/Air Force/Veterans Affairs Department could not be sued, because they were the federal government. That’s not true in all cases.

It’s really important for someone who has been injured by medical malpractice at a government facility, such as a military or veteran’s facility, that they have their case evaluated to see whether or not there is an avenue for recovery for their case. Congress made the Federal Tort Claims Act specifically so citizens of this country, and other countries, who are injured by the federal government could bring claims against the federal government. It is a Congress-sanctioned activity. There is nothing wrong with having your claim evaluated, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with bringing a claim against a government agency.

So, the first thing I encourage you to do is to act as expeditiously as you can when you think that there may be a potential case. The second thing is it costs nothing, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a case evaluated. Dr. Michael Archuleta
