Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney with more than 18 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. I am here to help

Also, if you would like to chat on the phone, let me know and I can make that happen.

It is possible to sue the federal government for medical negligence. The law suit would need to be filed under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). There is a 2 year statute of limitations for this...so the initial claim must be filed within 2 years of the event.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

New Expert here.

You can get a free consultation from some of the local medical malpractice attorneys listed here.

Suing the military for a civil rights violation is problematical and I don't have enough facts to form an opinion at to whether you have a case.

The statute of limitations for medical malpractice in California is usually three years, see section 340.5 at

http://leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=ccp&group=00001-01000&file=335-349.4

Please follow up on this with a local attorney.

I hope this information is helpful.
