Medical malpractice attorneys have helped a victim of malpractice obtain justice from the VA. A U.S. Army veteran sued the Veterans Administration alleging the VA failed to timely diagnose his prostate cancer. The 18-year veteran has won a roughly $2.6 million judgement against the Phoenix VA Health Care System after a week long trial before a U.S. Magistrate. According to the ruling, the VA should have ordered follow-up test and referred the veteran to a urologist after his 2011 prostate exam in 2011. If found early, doctors say the cancer was curable. Due to the medical malpractice on the part of the VA, the cancer went diagnosed for about a year.
