LawyersandSettlements.com Interviews Veterans Benefits Attorney Shanin Specter about Recent VA Hospital Reports
Date:7/24/2014

as subsequently rushed to hospital, with an accompanying notation on his chart that his condition was considered urgent. And yet, without explanation he was sent home. The man eventually died of Stage 4 bladder cancer just a week after landing an appointment at the VA hospital.

Specter also notes the case of ex-marine Christopher Ellison, who suffered a stroke in 2007 while driving home following a visit with the VA dentist. It was reported the dentist carried through with a multiple tooth extraction in spite of Ellison’s rapidly crashing blood pressure.

Ellison sued the VA in a Veterans medical malpractice lawsuit and won, with Specter’s help, a $17.5 million judgment (Ellison v. United States, 753 F. Supp. 2d 468 (E.D. Pa. 2010), District Court, E.D. Pennsylvania).

According to the Coburn report*, the VA has long claimed chronic under-funding. However, the report notes that VA funding, when adjusted for inflation, has actually increased in excess of 92 percent over the past decade.

Shanin Specter is a partner with the law firm Kline & Specter, in Philadelphia.
