If you have come to this page on the Rikard & Protopapas website, it is because you or someone you care for is a veteran. We would like to pause from explaining our services to thank you or your loved one for their service. Rikard & Protopapas believes that U.S. service members are the backbone of this great country and should always be recognized for their service. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.
Veterans who may have been injured by medical malpractice at a VA Hospital or have been injured at a government facility are deserving of timely restitution. However, meeting critical deadlines, completing all paperwork, and obtaining comprehensive evidence is essential to successfully navigate through the labyrinth of government red tape while submitting a claim. One misstep, however unintended, can result in significant time delays and even to the rejection of claims. There are very short deadlines to file claim forms to preserve claims and mistakes may result in you losing your right to even pursue compensation for your injuries.
At Rikard & Protopapas, we have the experience and knowledge necessary to walk you through this process while ensuring every piece of paperwork is properly submitted pursuant to the mandatory deadlines imposed by the VA and the Federal Government.
