While nearly all veterans who visit a Department of Veterans Affairs medical center get adequate care, sometimes things don’t go so well. When they don’t, the results can be catastrophic and expensive. A case in point is that of former Army Staff Sgt. Aaron Merritt. He died in 2014 at a VA hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. Now the VA has paid a big settlement. Trey Thatcher, attorney at Burch-Porter-Johnson, represented Merritt’s family. Thatcher joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to talk more about the case.
