Need help!I had filed a Federal Torts claim(SF 95) against the Dept of Veteran Affairs a couple of years ago that was denied. I filed an appeal to that claim some months back that recently came back denied again. The letter states that I may present my case to a Federal District Court and its giving me 6 months from the letter date of May 31, 2012 to do so. The facts in the case is that I hit my head on the VA Van door upon entering that caused a gash requiring 4 stitches. I had to be taken by ambulance to the Brooklyn VA Hospital for emergency treatment. Ever since then, I've had multiple medical problems that require me to take medication & have frequent visits to the neurology clinics since 2008. A few months after during my yearly eye exam, I was told that I had Atrophic retinal holes. Since the retina is vital for seeing, I was told that it did not take much to damage the very thin and fragile retinal layer resulting in significant visual impairment.
