National Law Journal: MBK Law Laskowski Verdict Underscores Long History of VA Care Problems

In the wake of the resignation of embattled Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki, The National Law Journal has published a story advancing the argument that the VA’s problems were much more deeply-seated than the recent scheduling issues and cover-ups in VA facilities such as Phoenix. Their research shows a long history of over 3,000 medical malpractice suits over the past 10 years against the VA costing about $100 million.

Cited as one such case was MBK Law’s representation of Iraq war vet Stanley Laskowski. The $3.7 million verdict confirmed that the VA had repeatedly ignored clear signs of PTSD and failed to provide adequate treatment.
